Social media is the lifeblood of many handmade businesses. But what happens if IG shuts down tomorrow?
You don’t OWN your IG, FB, or Pinterest accounts. But you can own a mailing list. The people who sign up have chosen to give you their email, and access to their inbox, and no-one but that person themselves can take that away from you.
In today’s #MakingItPodcourse lesson I discuss the vital importance of having an email list you can use to market your business.

What is the Making It Podcourse?
Over four weeks in July 2018, I’ll be releasing an episode/lesson of this course every day via the Create & Thrive Podcast (30 in total) on the topics of mindset, money, marketing, and business management.
I’ve created this course specifically for makers – those who create handmade goods to sell.
To create this FREE course, I’ve drawn on my 10 years of experience running my own successful handmade business, coupled with over 5 years of teaching other makers about handmade business right here at Create & Thrive.
I wanted to create something that was actionable and practical for all makers, no matter what stage of business you are at, and that would allow you to dig deep into 4 key aspects of the crafty biz journey.
I hope it helps your handmade business to thrive!
If you want to take your learning to the next level, the course conversation is happening daily over in my private membership community for makers – the Thriver Circle.
You can find out more about the oodles of benefits of membership right here.
