Are you trying to run your business all by yourself? Just because your products are created by you doesn't mean you have to do everything yourself...connect with your fellow artisans and local community to gain inspiration, learn new techniques or to just get a helping hand.
Your community might just be the one thing that you need to give your business a boost. Here are 3 ways to use your community to help your business:
1. Reach out and engage with a blogger within your community or genre by leaving comments on their blog, subscribing to their updates and sharing their content with your community. This is a great way to build exposure to your brand while also sharing the expertise of others!
2. Join a local art & craft community in your area..the support and inspiration you get from fellow artisans may just be the boost you need to grow your business! Plus, you'll have a ton of fun!
3. Work toward building success for both you and for your community. Teach others, share links from other community members and help your fellow artisans get exposure to your followers. Remember, 'we' is always better than 'me' and a little support goes a long way!
