Pondering Promoting Pots


Most of these ideas on meylah for promoting handmade products aren’t particularly new, but they do look good when posted in one place.  I do find it interesting that the art and craft community seems to embrace social media (Twitter, FaceBook, Etsy, etc.) as a means of promotion and marketing when much of the corporate world seems to be focused on the risks.  As a whole, crafters are not considered to be particularly tech-savvy…but they have adopted technology to create on-line communities and to keep their crafts in the public eye…and it is working!

  1. We really believe that the art/craft community is ahead of the curve when it comes to social media and great things are happening because of it. Thanks for this post!

      Courtney, I see the same level of creativity among visual artists that we have witnessed within the music industry, basically taking more control of the message and the delivery system. The number of artists using blogs, facebook pages, and twitter to stay connected with peers, friends, and customers is pretty amazing. I am optimistic that there is still a large market that values creativity, craftsmanship, and handmade objects. Thanks for your comments and thanks for the work you do on meylah.com!
