Lots of useful informative advice, on branding using social media to help sell your products and especially the pricing chapter, yes maybe the minimum wage isn't a good example but it's better than paying yourself nothing and just covering the cost of fabrics.
A bit disappointed with some advice from someone selling at crafts fairs, "At craft fairs I tend to sell samples, seconds and end of line products"
Having done my first craft fair recently, maybe that explains why I hardly sold anything if people are expecting car boot prices for one of a kind handmade items!
Lots of snippets of advice from others as well and the book is not too expensive either, well worth the money.
Would I recommend that people buy this book, yes I would!
Don't buy if you need some real help, this information is wildly available on the web.
Joanne does encourage craft business owners to charge what their products are worth which is great, but personally I wouldn't use the minimum wage as the figure for how much to pay yourself - that wouldn't feed a cat!
That's the only reason for 4 stars not 5 for this book, which was a great read and absorbed my attention even on a boiling hot, packed-to-the-rafters train. Thank you Joanne!
Well done Joanne.
It will sit by my computer from now and until I work my way through all the little turned down corners marking what I need to do next!
Oh and some great little projects to do as a bonus! I'm off to make a dribble bib now!
