Half Day Workshop

Selling Through Online Marketplaces

These workshops are aimed at Creative Businesses. Whether you are an artist, maker or musician these are practical, digital marketing workshops, to help you grow your business.

Online marketplaces such as Etsy & Folksy are great ways of starting to build your creative business as there is little outlay and design required to start selling. However, there are ways you can make them work better for you and your business.

This practical workshop will look at;

  • What are Etsy & Folksy?
  • How to set up your accounts
  • Writing your bio
  • Images
  • Product descriptions
  • Keywords & SEO
  • What are the benefits for you?

We will be hands on so please bring your chosen electronic device – whether you prefer to use a laptop or a tablet. Please sign up (or convert) to either Etsy and/or Folksy beforehand (if you need support with this please get in touch prior to the workshop.) If you are already signed up please bring all your log in details.

We will be keeping this workshop small so there will be plenty of opportunity for some one on one advice and support.

We will be getting right back to basics to understand what it is your customer searches for, and how you can be found. We will look at different Etsy & Folksy accounts to see who uses it well, and to help you get inspired! We will get a plan of action together so that you can leave the session ready to fill, grow, and develop your shop!

There will also be plenty of opportunity to network with your fellow creative friends.

Do take a look at the whole series of practical workshops being hosted by The Creative Business Network.
