I remember when I first started selling my handmade items, I had to get creative to find ways to save money but still look like I knew what I was doing.
In this series, I am going to touch on a bunch of different business topics that will help you run your handmade business more smoothly, look more professional to your customers, increase sales and decrease expenses.
I decided to break this up into multiple posts because if I just made one giant post it would take a week to read the whole thing!
Here are the topics you can expect to be discussed in this series.
- MailChimp for Your Business
- Paypal for Business
- 13 Creative Marketing Techniques to Grow your Small B
- Photography tips and techniques
- Packaging your orders on a budget
This list is subject to change, I may add more to it as well. Once the posts are live I will link each topic above to its coordinating blog post.
Each post will be packed full of information including, things I’ve learned from personal experience, free downloads, linked resources for further research, products that will save you money in the long run, useful free resources you may not know about, ways to turn customers into return customers, ways to grow your customer base, ways to save money on business essentials, tutorials and more!
I am so excited about this series. Helping handmade business owners is my passion.
I love seeing small businesses succeed, people grow, friendships develop and dreams being reached.
If you have any questions regarding any of these posts, please don’t hesitate to reach out. I am a resource for you and I am happy to help in any way I can.
I am by no means an expert, but I believe in sharing information and if I can help someone avoid a long and expensive trial and error process by sharing what I know, then I’m sure going to do that.
The goal with this series is to help handmade business owners save money in some areas, and allow for investing in their business financially in others!
I plan to get a new post out every other day or so, you can expect the first post very soon. Thanks so much for your daily encouragement, continuing to follow me on this maker journey and for supporting my business.

I’m super pumped about this. I have been doing my knitting and crochet business on the side, and since I was diagnosed with a chronic illness and was put off work permanently, I’ve taken it as my full time job.
However since the transition wasn’t immediate, my bank account is in serious deficit. Thankful for this help!!!
