Promoting artists and craftspeople

Following on from my post about selling statement jewellery and resin bangles, this week I'm promoting both my Folksy shop and my WowThankYou shop via Craftfest.

Some of you will know that I'm a bit fan of this method of promotion as pictures get lots of clicks, which sometimes result in sales, but always results in greater online exposure.  You'll also know that I have, for those very reasons, taken a lead in promotions during fests.  This time though, I've stepped back, as the event is now so HUGE that it needs a number of people to co ordinate all the promos going on during the week.

Garreth from ScentCosmetics is co ordinating Teams of Pin Likers, Commenters and Repinners.
