I joined this site a few days ago and am very impressed ! This is my first thread on this forum and I hope to learn a lot and teach if i have to opportunity!
Im no stranger to woodworking and own operate a General Construction company in a resort town in western md. Cabinetry, furniture, and innovative ideas have always been a passion of mine. We handle a massive amount of tourism and second home owners. Getting a constant workload in construction came naturally as I the fourth generation of contractors in my family but it has been lacking the satisfaction that I want in my life. My perfectionist nature is only rivaled by the OCD behind it, which is a very useful combo when directed properly and applied to a service or product. I needed an outlet that would create revenue as well as giving me an outlet to be creative, innovative, and very detailed.
So I just set up a 4500 sq ft woodworking shop and have been turning some pieces out. I cant remember being happier. I am not prepared for a storefront at this time but I have attempted to set up shop online. The problem is that I just dont know enough.
I have social media accounts and can build websites to an extent etc…... I am having trouble figuring out how to use these in conjunction to effectively promote and sell.
I would liken my situation to figure and make all of the pieces of a cabinet or furniture piece but not knowing how those pieces fit together to assemble it.
If there is anyone who can help me I would really appreciate it ! I know this probably isnt the usual woodworking post but its a very important factor for any woodworker …..After all something has to pay the overhead to even make it possible!
