I opened my Etsy shop(Shelby's Enchanted Bowtique) back in September of 2011. It was a big step for me and something I was very nervous about. There is a lot more to selling on Etsy than meets the eye. Aside from making, photographing and listing all my items...I had to learn how to market them. I created a Facebook Fanpage (find it here). I made a Twitter account (here), and started utilizing Pinterest(here) and Wanelo(here) to promote my business as well. While I used all these platforms on a regular basis, I didn't feel like I was using them the best way possible. I needed something to give me a little push...some motivation...some guidance.
A few weeks ago, I was offered a spot in business development Bootcamp! The bootcamp is lead by the amazing and talented Debbie Nowicki @Growing Phases Farm. I was honored to take part, and felt that it was just what I needed to kick my business into high gear.
Today is DAY ONE! I have already discovered that I have a lot to learn and a lot of room to grow:) I will post updates every now and then in regards to my progress:)
Wish me luck!
