Top 5 Posts of 2014

We've really tried to beef up the business help on our blog this year... and it looks like you guys really appreciated that! Our top blog posts of 2014 really reflect that. Here are the five most popular posts, in case you missed them.

#1: 5 STEPS TO INSTASUCCESS FOR MAKERS

I had a feeling this one would be popular, but I had no idea just how much. More Instagram strategy posts will be coming your way in 2015.

#2: WHY YOUR LOGO IS NOT YOUR BRAND

My background is in marketing and this one just happened to be a pet peeve. Branding is often shorthand for your visuals, but it's so much more than that!

#3: READER ROUNDUP: WHERE YOU LOVE TO SELL

We had a lot of interest from our followers about hearing about new places to sell. There were several responses and pleas for more in the future. Wish granted! Look for more of this in 2014.

#4: DO'S AND DON'TS FOR WHOLESALING

This post came about because our member Stacy Wong has been on both sides of the wholesale game-- she has been running a curated online shop called Twine and also makes her own handmade line. She's interacted with lots of buyers and also maintains relationships with sellers through Twine.

#5: ARE YOU KILLING YOUR CRAFT SHOW VIBE? Series

Okay, so this was several posts rolled into one, but I think the advice that our member Miriam Dema gives is much more beyond the standard craft show prep list. She's a smart seller and extremely pragmatic when it comes to this stuff.
