One reason people like to shop from handmade businesses is the personal attention they receive. You can easily become known for your phenomenal customer care and personal touches that keep customers coming back for more.
Here are a few ways you can take care of your customers:
1) Try to learn and remember every first-time customer’s name (or, if you’re terrible with names, some other important detail about him or her). When you greet them the next time they shop from you, your memory of them will demonstrate how important they are to you.
2) Find small extra things you can do for your customers, above and beyond what they expect. When the art teacher at my son’s school asked me to redesign some old beads into new necklaces, I also created a pair of matching earrings from some of the beads, which she hadn’t thought to ask for. She was thrilled with that thoughtful extra touch.
To many of us, crafting is a hobby. A very interesting one, but still a hobby. We like making cute little things and sometimes we gift them to our friends. The most talented of us even may sell our work and it is very nice to get some money for it.
I am not going to give you a magical equation for getting richer, if I knew it I would use it, but there are things we can do more efficiently and still have good time. So, it depends on how much time you are willing to invest in this.
