I can’t tell you how happy I am to have a three day weekend! I was traveling for half of last month, and let me tell you the struggle of self-employment is never more apparent than when you have to play catch up after travel. Here at TBM we’ve been thinking a lot about selling products (both digital and physical), since we’ve been collaborating with sellers over on Conscious Shop Collective and we’ve both sold on Etsy in the past. We love supporting small businesses! Hopefully these tools for online business will be helpful for those of you with shops or thinking of selling products online.
1. Here’s a mega list of tools and tips to run your online business from Fiona Flintham, from goal setting to content and more.
2. Always Rooney has lots of great Etsy tips, and I especially liked her top tips from 3 successful sellers.
3. Love these ideas from Hello I’m Handmade on how to make your business stand out.
4. I love creative product photography. It’s so important in selling your product, but a lot of makers struggle with it! Holly Casto’s 5 types of product photos every listing should have breaks it down in such a simple and effective way. 100% agree!
Stay tuned next week for our favorite seller tools! Hope you all have a fantastic Labor Day weekend! Follow us on Instagram to keep up with our adventures.
