Trying to get your name out into the big wide world is an integral part of any business. But with no budget to work with there is a limited amount that you can do. So recently I have been doing a little more to try and promote myself, and get people thinking about Aisling Designs.
I was very happy to be asked to create a bunting for a recent Etsy meet up in Nottingham. It managed to get into the photos of the event, which have since been posted in various places on the internet, as well is an article in a Nottingham newspaper.
Other ways of promoting Aisling Designs recently include taking part in a free shipping promotion that is happening on Etsy. So for the rest of March you can get free shipping within the UK in my shop and others, by using the code FREEMARCH13. The other shops taking part can be found here.
Also on Etsy, I am taking part in a team giveaway, in association with the British Emporia Team. Which means that the winner will get £100 to spend in ten shops taking part in the giveaway, that’s £10 in each shop. More details can be found here.
Then there is the “networking”. Facebook and Twitter are great for this (when I can think of something to post about ) If you haven’t yet found me in these places I am on Facebook right here, and Twitter just here. Every Tuesday and Thursday evening between 8 and 9pm there is a #uketsyhour on twitter, so if you want to find more UK based crafters, it might be worth checking this out, I have found some wonderful shops there, that I would never have come across otherwise.
