Craftfest for Crafty Sellers

Don't miss out on a great business opportunity!

Sell your items at an online Craft Fair!

If you haven't heard about Craftfest, then you are missing a trick in selling your handmade items.

Craftfest is a regular online craft fair that runs for a week and allows you to set up your own craft stall and sell your items through it. There are several Craftfest events that run throughout the year and the next event is 29th June - 6th July 2013.

Taking part in Craftfest is the ideal opportunity not only to sell your items and gain more exposure, but it is also a great place to network, meet other sellers and to learn new marketing skills.

Each event is hosted by Creative Connections Social Network.  This is a great place to meet fellow crafters from all over the world, so even if you don't take part in Craftfest it is well worth joining Creative Connections! 

Once you have signed up for Craftfest you can create your stall and start promoting it straight away! As Craftfest is a community event you will get promotions from the Creative Connections Blogs, but you will also get promotions from other sellers too and so increase your stall exposure!

So now onto the important aspect, money.........
