Were you there? Did you miss it? I hope not! Thank you to everyone who participated and made this the biggest Twitter Party we’ve EVER had! It was so exciting to see so many of you joining in and chatting with us!
Having everyone talking about their craft and how they have or would like to turn it into a business was such a great way to celebrate National Craft Month! Some craft industry veterans like Mark Montano, Crafty Chica, and our very own FaveCrafts Radio host Amy Anderson joined in to offer up their advice to all of you! We asked some tough questions, but got some great answers.
Q1: Would you consider yourself a crafty businessperson? What is your crafty business?
@ISpyDIY said “My blog is my job and I treat it that way, it is important to stay consistent and keep giving good content daily.”
@thezenofmaking said “Reach out to established bloggers who’re already where you’d like to be. If you’re friendly and honest, they’ll help you!
Q2: For the bloggers out there, what is a tip you would give to newbie bloggers?
@CraftyChica said “Biggest mistake I see in budding bizfolks is WAITING. Just dive in, take action. Doing=learning.”
@Creative_Income said “Guest blogging is a great way to get your name out there when you’re starting out!”
Q3: It’s social media time, what form of social media “works” best?
@CynGagen said “I think different types of social media work in different ways and for different purposes. That’s why I try to use them all.”
@modpodgerocks said “My most loyal readers are in my Facebook group! I like interacting there.”
Q4: Describe your business model in one word.
@Ninth_Street said “progressive”
@ISpyDIY said “Busines model in one word: DIY, haha does that work?”
Those were just a couple of the hundreds of answers we got for each question. If you want to see the whole chat and read through, you can do so here.
