Advertising is important - no kidding. You need to get your name and info out there so people know that you're around! There are SOOO many people out there it's very easy to get lost in it all. . .thus the reason why I have my shop on Etsy, this blog and my website domain The Artful Mommy.
Sometimes you can find good people to help you out. Jocelyn @ The Little Love Bug @ Etsy kindly offered to send out my cards with her packages! Thank you to her and I hope she likes the Halloween Business Card holder from my shop that I sent along for her troubles and kindness. Only 1 left in stock!
Another amazing crafter is actually offering free earrings from her shop for bloggers who blog about her. IF I can get 10 people to click on the link to her shop I get a pair of really cool earrings! Actually, if I don't I may just have to buy a pair because they're really nice. Distinction Jewelry also has jewelry for lawyers (and other professionals). I love that! What to get my cousin for Christmas? She's a lawyer so I'll be looking through this category in another few weeks. This is a very talented jeweler! Check out this mobius ring! AND FREE SHIPPING! I think I really need these earrings. HINT HINT :)
So we'll see how things go with getting my info out there a bit while helping others at the same time. Fingers crossed and sewing machine ready -
