There’s no doubt that the list of different marketing tasks you would like to accomplish is a mile long. Each day we are presented with new (and old) opportunities to help us get the word out about our handmade shops. It's often hard to feel like you’ve accomplished enough marketing for your shop each day, and even harder to know where to start!
In my last article I showed you a system to help you promote your Artfire or Etsy shop more in less time. This article will continue with this same theme, as promised, and share part of my system for organizing my offline tasks. If you missed my system for completing online tasks, head over to my previous article to get caught up.
Head over the Handmade News to read "A System for Organizing Marketing Tasks to Help You Accomplish More".
With Halloween just around the corner, and Christmas close behind it, there's no time to waste! Handmade sellers need to make sure they are ready for the Holiday season and have completed the "leg work" prior to the rush of buyers surfing Etsy, Artfire and 1000 Markets looking for unique Christmas gifts.
I've compiled a quick reference list to help you plan your marketing campaigns before and during the holidays. This reference will be in two parts. Today I will share with you the things you need to do before the holiday season starts, and tomorrow I'll share with you the things you need to do during the holiday season. Feel free to add to my list in the comments below. Let's get started!
In my previous article, I shared a checklist of marketing tasks to do before the holiday season starts. In this article, I’ll help you know what to do during the holiday season. If you know what you need to do before the holiday season starts you can plan ahead and be prepared. Let’s jump right into the checklist because after all, there’s no time to waste!
Just listed these two pretty butterfly cards in my online shop!
