Made By Hand. By Me UWIB

One of my beads, Jake the Super Hero, is being featured in this
Unique Women In Business (UWIB) Spotlight. My thanks to Rachel of Etsy's Bookwormz (really cool bookmarks) for including me. Come see the rest of the page here and explore a bit.

This spotlight features fellow members of UWIB, which is a group I recently joined.
I have found all kinds of marketing information and good products from my fellow members.

I like the way it's run. You have to be referred. And you need to buy something from that person who referred you. After that, one of the requirements is that you buy something from one of the members each month. So far I have bought a beautiful journal and some delicious smelling lotion. Although there are very inexpensive items available too.

Most of the members are artists or artisans, but there are some who represent commercial companies too. I like this aspect. It helps keep the group diversified. The same company can not be represented by more than one person, so it stays unique.

I have not had any sales yet from the group, but I'm hoping that I can meet more of the jewelry makers and other artisans and that they'll choose some of my work one of these months. In the meantime, I'll just soak up the marketing tips and see where it takes me.

If you would like to know more, feel free to email me. I'd be happy to refer you. StudioMarcy (at) gmail.com.
