It’s finally open and what a great group of artists so far. The LABSHOP is my curated marketplace featuring some of the most talented handmakers in the creative universe. I still have plenty of spaces open and I wanted to extend an invitation to all of you fab handmakers over here in OMHG Land. We’ve already had a ton of traffic over there, so I gotta share!
My goal with the LABSHOP is to create a diverse curated experience that would serve as an additional marketing tool for handmakers with a modern flair. Plus, why should you go bankrupt trying to get a little extra exposure? I feel that, as a blogger who is obsessed with handmade, I have to keep trying to find new and assessable ways to help you get the word out about your handmade goodness. So, here’s some features of the LABSHOP that make it, in my bow tie wearing opinion, a really great place to be:
- Every entry in the new shop features, not only 5 images, but as you can see here, a list of links to your shop, Facebook & Twitter pages. That way, even if the visitor isn’t interested in the item being offered, they can head over to your primary shop to see all of your creations. I also will be including bio information and video, if you have it.
- You get to change your product three times: once for summer, and the second for early fall and the third for the busy fall/winter shopping season. It’s all included in your membership.
- The cost for the May – December edition of the LABSHOP is only $30. That works out to be $3.75 a month, which is really great. It’s another avenue of advertisement that is sure to give you more much needed exposure and it’s less than a Grande cup of Mocha Whatever from StarYouKnowWho. You can jump in anytime you want to, the price stays the same. Of course, the earlier you join us, the better the deal!
The new shop will eventually feature 100 artists and I’ve upgraded to the Big Cartel Diamond package. This gives me the ability to share more comprehensive stats with each participant.
The categories of items that will be in the LABSHOP cover a wide array of handmade goods:
- Purses and bags
- Art, prints & posters
- Fonts & Themes
- For Kids
- Handmade Tech
- MORE TO COME!
