well hello there, maker!

Have you had any time yet to start planning your first promo for the year? Or do you have absolutely no clue where to start?
This week on the Business of Making Podcast we’re chatting about planning your marketing around special events and holidays throughout the year, including projected timelines, international ordering dates, turn-around times, sales and not doing everything!
We hope you enjoy this episode – when you’re done listening, make sure to come and let us know what you thought in our free Facebook group.
Have a lovely week,

We need you to help us tailor this event to what YOU really need to work on in your handmade business + you’ll get to help us pick which cities we should travel to!
