Sell your handmade creations online and quit your day job
Are you a crafter or artist who is always giving away your beautiful handmade creations to your friends and family? Maybe you've thought about selling but going to markets isn't viable for you and it's too scary to 'put yourself out there' just yet.
Big Guns of the Brisbane craft scene, BrisStyle Inc are hosting a number of workshops over the coming months which can take you from hobbyist to professional crafter. On Saturday 26th July, they are hosting their first session specifically for taking your craft to the next level and selling in an online venue. And the best part? They are completely free of charge!
Sam Gilkes from hand-drawn wooden jewellery brand Jetta's Nest, is the presenter for this information session and a sneaky peak into her own online Etsy store will show you her prowess in selling in an online setting. She will also speak about other online models including hosting your own website, social media and everything you need to know to make your online selling experience more positive and ultimately more profitable.
