Whether your craft is a part-time hobby or a full-time business, we know it is always a pleasure to be creative! Anytime Artisan has been developed to help local customers to find your amazing handmade creations. We are providing a virtual artisan market, which is “open” anyday, anytime and all sellers and buyers are local people ensuring that we are all supporting one another in our local community.
A virtual stall
There is no need to worry about which markets are worth attending, if anyone will be there, what the weather will be like, or having to set up a gazebo in the wind and rain, or carrying all your stock from the car to your stall! Everything can be done from your sofa! This means that whatever your personal circumstances might be, from juggling being a single parent to struggling with an illness, you can carry on doing what you enjoy (the making!) and the selling can all be done online. You don’t even need to have a website or a virtual shop (but we can help you set one up if that’s what you would like).
How does it work?
There is a simple form to complete which will allow us to set up your virtual stall. Customers can then view your products on your stall page and click to contact you directly to buy through any of the available options you have (email, website, facebook, instagram etc). There is a monthly fee of £10 for your stall.
What else do I need to do?
Nothing! (other than making your amazing gifts – but that’s your favourite part anyway!) Anytime Artisan will carry out all marketing and social media activity to ensure that local people know about the site. We will send a monthly newsletter to keep in touch with our customers and with you, our sellers.
Are there are any extra things I can do to promote by business?
There are 3 levels of Artisan Assistant which include options to be featured on our home page and in our social media stories too. We can also provide amazing photography for your products if required. In addition, we offer personalised marketing support and social media management as optional extras if required, so that you really can just focus on
the “fun” bits or we can provide the training to allow you to run your own marketing campaigns in the future.
All artisans on “levels 2 and 3” can join in our monthly “Let’s get social” gatherings where we share our ideas for social media plans, promotions, small business support and generally to help one other out.
