Just thought I'd do a quick blog following the announcement that I'm now admin for the Crafty-Bitz website and facebook page :)
I'm really excited to be working with Sarah who runs Dragonfly-Jersey as it's her little baby but, like me, she works full time so needs some help to keep it on track.
For anyone who hasn't heard of Crafty-Bitz take a look at the website and facebook page
But it's free to register and you can sign in with either your facebook or an email address. You set up your profile and then off you go.
It's somewhere to showcase your crafty goodies, whether they're a work in progress or ready to purchase. All we ask is that you put contact details on all your photos so people can get in touch with you if they're interested.
At the moment there are 120 members but a lot of those still need to send in their details to go on the members directory. We'll be doing quite a bit of promoting over the next few weeks and will then ramp it up in January once the madness of Christmas has faded!
We've already discussed ways in which we can engage with members and here are some suggestions:
1. Business page of the day - Picked from the members directory at random we will advertise whatever links we have been provided with. So to be included all members will need to email: firstname.lastname@example.org
2. Themed showcases - Not online craft fairs but themed showcases where members can share a limited number of photos with price, description, contact details and links to where item can be bought directly. Each showcase will have a theme
3. Blog - Maybe in the New Year set up a Crafty-Bitz blogger blog if there's demand for it
Well, that's all we've come up with in 24 hours but we're open to any and all suggestions, in fact we're encouraging it quite a bit. We can't guarantee we'll be able to do them all but we'll give them all some serious thought :)
I've also got my own crafty-bitz email too: Natasha@crafty-bitz.com so feel free to send all suggestions there too
Thanks and hope you've had a better Monday at work than I have!
