I have posted, several times, about which direction to take in making and trying to sell scrollsaw items. Many have responded with thoughts and ideas, and a big thank you.
In reality, why not do what you love the best. My purpose in scrollsaw work is just a hobby, really. Now looking at the money I made last year I am truly surprised. However when compared to the hours spend the return per hour is very low. However the satisfaction of seeing people love and want to purchased my work is really the reward.
I have decided, for the most part, the fretwork type items will be the majority of what I make. I just love doing this type of work. Yes, very time consuming but I still love it.
I have started a new Facebook page called “PA’s Workshop” which, beside here on LJ, is where I will post projects I have been working on or completed.
I still will be setting up an ESTY shop. I have one in name only but there are a few more logistical steps to take before is can be stocked. That and one craft shop outlet and my Facebook page will be my marketing plan for 2013.
So then, why do I go on about this so much. Number 1, a marketing background. Number 2, if you are going to do something you have got to love it. AND Number 3, IF I am going to put a product out there with my name on it, it has got to be the best product I can product.
Thanks for reading.
