    hey there – found this really cool insert from an etsy article on tips for marketing your handmade products:

    “For me the number one reason to buy something handmade is that that item has a story and a life separate from me. It was not designed by committee somewhere and then fabricated somewhere else. It was conceived and created by a single human being with a story to tell. And if I know that story behind my purchase, I will tell it again and again to everyone in every elevator who asks me about it. Using your Etsy shop or your products to tell a story or more specifically your story can be a powerful way to distinguish yourself in a sea of makers.

    Set Your Scene and Do Not Waste One Word!

    Every bit of text in your shop is an opportunity to tell a story. Shop title, item descriptions and titles. You know this already and I know it is sometimes very hard to do! Once I have taken a good picture of my new items, I don’t want to waste time writing text before I present it to the world! I want to click UPLOAD! But you always have more content to add to your listings.

    anyhow thought it could be a useful little reminder of what makes handmade special and unique, and to emphasise that in our felt shops with each item we make…
