Taking Pictures of your Handmade Items

Ask yourself this question
“If you were to open a brick and mortar store would you set it up, add your stock and walk away, or would you be there every day making sure that your customers were happy, changing your product and re-arranging things so that your customers had something interesting and different to see when they dropped by your store.
Please make sure that you treat your online store as you would a brick and mortar store, remember your customers are real people looking for interesting items they can buy for gifts or for themselves.
You also need to promote your online business on a regular basis, just a couple of hours a day promoting will bring hundreds of new customers.
Not to promote your online handmade craft business regularly can mean the difference between success and failure.
