selling handmade online series

Hi, laundry loves.
Happy Monday.
Have you ever wanted to know a little lot more about selling handmade online?
Well, today is your day.
Actually, this week (and a little bit of next) is your week.
Ritajoy at Harbour Breeze put together an awesome 7 day series,
I’m sharing my tips for a successful Etsy shop,
and Gina from Shabby Creek Cottage, Aimee from My Pink Life
and Lisa from The Pennington Point are chiming in on their handmade businesses too.{This little rookie is excited to be among that crowd of amazing ladies!}

Each day we’ll answer a question that Ritajoy had about running an online business.
Day 1: “Meet the Teachers” 
{4 bloggers tell their handmade business stories.}
Day 2: “Product Branding” 
{graphic design and store banners}
Day 3: “Organizing a Workspace”  
{when you live where you work!}
Day 4: “Presenting your Product” 
{tips for photographing}
Day 5: “Wrapping up a Sale” 
{packaging for shipment}
Day 6: “Promoting your Shop” 
{getting the word out}
Day 7: “Balancing it all” 
{multitasking in life!}
Cool, huh?

Starting today, the series will run all week,
break over the weekend, and finish up on Monday and Tuesday.
Click here to hop over to Day 1: “Meet the Teachers”.
If you’re thinking of starting a handmade business, I’m in your corner.

  11. I can’t thank you enough for this. I just started making some things and selling them on etsy. Even though I had been a buyer for
    years, I have yet to sell anything.

    Hope to learn some things to boost it up!

    Kindredly, Lynnie
