3 biggest mistakes when writing your Mini Me description……

Ok, so they’re not really mistakes, but the most frequent things I have found happens when someone orders a Mini Me.


Firstly..Assuming I know you in real life.
This happens most frequently, I assume because I like to chat to my customers. If you have worked with me before or just interact with my page, you will know that I like to have actual conversations, not just work chat, so it’s likely that we are familiar with each other before you ever get down to ordering a Mini Me.
This then carries over when you get down to writing your Mini Me Descriptions.
The phrase to remember when you are writing descriptions:  I haven’t met you in real life. I probably don’t know if you have a visible birthmark or freckles or that you sometimes wear glasses.
Secondly…..Being Vague
I know describing yourself is hard for most people (it’s the same for me too) but the more detailed information you can give me, the better the resemblance your character with have to you.
Never worry about being too specific. 9 times out of 10, I can add all the things you tell me without any issue if I know you want it before I start.
It’s hard to know what you want to start with….. but if you don’t know what you want, neither do I. This can be rather irritating for me as the artist. If you aren’t sure what will look best, or not sure what will work for your business, just ask and we can discuss it. Sometimes having someone to talk it out with can help clear up any questions you have.
If you just send me an email with a list of say 3 of your favourite outfits, it is then down to me to try and guess which one you’d like your character to be wearing. 9 times out of 10 the one I pick wont be the one you had in your mind and you’ll ask me to change it.
This means:
  • More time to make changes
  • Likely cost you more money for any added changes after this
  • Longer waiting times for other customers

Top Tip for making decisions – The best reactions I have seen small business get, have been from Mini Me’s who mimic the customers every day wears. Think about what customers see you doing everyday, how your hair is, what you wear and go from there. If your character looks like your real life, it creates more of a connection for the customer.
