What to do when you think your handmade business is struggling
  1. Keli says:

    My business has doubled since running fundraisers for good causes — my customers order more and spread the word more because, simply, they like me even more. Also, when I do giveaways to promote the fundraisers, it’s a hefty tax write-off for me, which is very important to me these days.

    • Mei says:

      That’s awesome Keli! I have been seeing your fundraisers around. It sounds like a really effective strategy if done right – you tie in your greeting cards somehow, right? Can you share more about anything in particular you’re doing to promote your business while fundraising?

    Mei –

    Thank you SO much for inviting me to read your posts. Even though I felt like I wasn’t ready to jump in with PR, you’ve convinced me to just go ahead and try. Thank you for the confidence!

    • Mei says:

      You’re most welcome Catharine! I’m glad this made you feel more comfortable about the entire process. It’s really not as scary as our minds make it to be :) Keep me updated on your progress!

  3. Annette says:

    Ive applied for a couple of opportunities for possible free exposure in magazines but they all want to keep my jewellery. With an average price of around $160 per piece and each one one of a kind, how do you propose to handle that? Is that a justified cost or do most magazines send the items back when they’re finished with them?

    • Mei says:

      Annette, can you tell me what those opportunities are exactly? Every time I have requested for my jewelry to be mailed back, the editors have always respected that. Of course, you’ll need to make it easy for them and include a prepaid return shipping label.

      The offices of these magazines are always fighting for more space. They receive hundreds of samples and often have no where to put them!

    I am a new blogger, new as in I made my first post yesterday. My family loves my homemade body butters, and I want to work on selling them. These tips were concise and to the point, thank you very much. Any more tips for a baby blogger?

    These are great tips! My question is, after you are successful & have an abundance of orders, how do you keep up with demand in a handmade business?
