There are simple steps you can take to market and grow your business in your community.
Join your local team - on Etsy or any other selling site if you have the opportunity it's nice to be able to connect with other artists that live near you. It is also a good way to find out about local events, networking opportunities, and gallery events.
Network - Don't miss out on an opportunity to market your business when you attend local events, meet with friends, or go shopping. Join local networking groups, like parent, business owners, or artists groups.
Don't forget your social media sties and marketing your friends and family - As long as you don't do it all the time mention a sale or special you are offering on your Facebook or twitter page.
Marketing locally makes you known in your community and when someone is looking for what you sell your name will be the first name someone will share.
