It’s hard to believe I started Handmade Success 4 years ago. There were lots of reasons that I started my business and wrote The Etsy Kit – my passion for small, indie businesses, my love of social media and new internet technology. I think we are all so lucky to live in a time where small business owners have access to the sophisticated and effective marketing tools that used to only be reserved for businesses with deep pockets. At the time I started, in late 2008, I was bursting to share these with artists and crafters who didn’t know about them, and I put pen to paper and started spreading the word. The response to my book was exciting and it makes me so happy to be a small part of all of your businesses.
Lately, I have been re-inspired by even more new and interesting marketing tools for small business. There are so many exciting ways for you all to showcase your work online. I have the urge to share it all with you in a new way. So, after an encouraging nudge from our lovely editor Kerry, I have decided to open up some time to work one-on-one with Etsy shop owners to help you get your shop in the best shape possible, and to help give you a marketing blueprint for the year ahead.
Thanks again for 4 great years.
