So, this is my first Sellers Bootcamp and wow! am I learning a lot! What is the Bootcamp? iCraft is an artisan selling forum like Etsy and Artfire. They hold the Bootcamp a few times a year to help independent sellers, like myself, learn how to use our marketing time wisely and how to network. It lasts for a month and we have daily assignments to complete. This week I had to create a personal bio, a professional bio, an advertisement blurb, and I learned how to use TweetDeck to consolidate my Twitter, Facebook, and MySpace updates.
Being a one-woman show, it’s difficult to find time to do the marketing necessary to getting my name out there. My passion is sewing, not networking, so this is very new to me. I’m going to try to take you along with me on my Bootcamp journey and feature some of the other campers over the next month. Hope you enjoy the ride! 🙂
