Maker Meet Up – Sales Strategies for the Holidays

November 10 @ 10:00 am - 11:30 am

Running a creative business, particularly from home can be solitary. Many of our clients & businesses have said that it would be great to have other people to bounce ideas off of or to share in tips, tricks and things that have worked for them.

In this interactive session facilitated by Cheryl Wilson of The Makers Hub and Teresa Shaver from BACD we will discuss sales strategies and channels for the upcoming holiday season!

  • The Maker Meetup strives to create a common space for Artists, Crafters, Makers and Hobbyists to discuss challenges, share successes, create networks and to learn approaches that may grow your own business.
  • There is no fee to attend, registration is required.

About the Facilitator: Cheryl Wilson

As a Durham home-based maker herself, owner Cheryl Wilson, quickly realized that operating online and not having a physical storefront created a problem when exchanging products. Local buyers want (and should), be able to avoid shipping delays and costs. Because of this, many businesses were using ‘porch pickup’ as their solution. For business owners and local buyers this solution was less than ideal. It’s risky and unprofessional.
