How do you feel about marketing your products?

This week’s episode is inspired by something that’s been on many handmade sellers’ minds due to the Covid-19 pandemic but that’s relevant at ALL times, pandemic or not (so if you’re listening in the future, still a very good episode to listen to!).

We’re talking about being hesitant in marketing your products, why it is, and how to become more confident when selling your creations. This is both a “mindset” issue and a “marketing strategy” issue (like many things in business!) and we made sure to tackle both to help you feel better (and be better at) selling your products.
