Are you making and selling handmade goods?

After a bit of a chat between fellow artisans that sell their handmade goods online, I've started up a forum, the Handmade Business Forum, that is independent of all the sell through sites, where people can come and chat about being in business, but mostly to discuss promotions and ad campaigns for their shops and websites.

We all know how hard it is to get our goods seen and sometimes it's hard to know where to start. This forum is a place where we can help each other with ideas and join up as teams to promote each other. The forum is set up so only members can read it, this allows you to chat about your ideas in private.

We will be using the forum to plan for group promotions, like the Coriandr Express that a group of us ran a few months ago, and to come up with new ideas that will get the handmade movement's message out there to a wider public and gain publicity for all of the forum members.

If you make and sell handmade goods and wish to join in, please sign up to the forum and come and chat.

  1. Oh by the way, when you join you have to wait for a verification email. That might take a little while to come through as every application is manually accepted to keep the forum private.

  3. You may also want to consider the Crafts Report discussion board. There is a growing community of like-minded artists and independent craftspeople. I'm the publisher of the magazine, so of course I have a vested interest. :) But it never hurts to make more friends.
