Marketing Magic for Makers
with Terri Belford and Barbara Winter:
Do you make jewelry, knit hats, bake cakes, make soaps, pour candles or can blackberry preserves? Whether you’re a painter, a potter, a poet or a photographer, you love making stuff and probably wish you could make a living from your craft. You may have put up an Etsy page or set up a booth at a craft fair and you’re not bringing in the cash you’d hoped. Don’t give up because you really can turn your craft into cash and it’s a lot easier and more fun that you imagine.
When you think about trying to market your art, do you feel like climbing back into bed and pulling the covers over your head? If the thought of turning your craft into a business makes you sick, join Barbara Winter, author of “Making a Living Without a Job”, me and a room full of other makers where we’ll show you lots of fun, creative ways to turn your craft into cash.
