I was in the local paper last Friday talking about my craft, supporting the local economy and my plans for world domination.
I was talking to a friend recently who said they admired a local business who was happy to make a living from their products rather than aim for world domination and I have to agree – that’s a much better plan. I would love to do Emma Makes full-time and think that’s a worthy if very distant goal.
Part of what I try and do is to constantly drive awareness of Emma Makes without spending lots of money (that I don’t have). The Times Age article was great and I’ve also done a little Emma Makes postcard drop (with ‘Made in Featherston’ stickers on them) around some local shops. If you have any other ideas or avenues let me know – it’s a never-ending exercise really and I’ve found too that getting people to my website doesn’t always mean making sales.
