a change is as good as a rest?

hiya, thank you for visiting, ok so it goes a little like this; etsy is not a good fit, for a few reasons, perhaps so many it needs its own post, for now suffice it to say time=money=getting stuff achieved, now if you have been with me since january you know I have slogged through some pretty steep learning curves, and this latest has been another endurance test, don’t let anyone tell you setting up in business is easy, ideally this all would be done by someone who has a head for business, I have had to learn everything from scratch, mostly though I have to produce, market, sell and the various ways in which to do this have been researched until I am at the point of tears, you see ideally I have to market the product using the best , and cheapest, platforms, etsy is not cheap,neither is it the best, unfortunately cheap and best are not in the same place and so here we are, taking into account prices, service, etc and what can be made reasonably affordable leaves few choices and of them it has been decided to go with gumroad, so at the moment all items are slowly being removed from etsy and placed on gumroad, however the workload with gumroad is a lot more.so it may take a while, the upsides are it should mean slightly cheaper prices, and more items selling, the site is directly linked to the print company which is good as they handle not only the cutting sewing etc but the delivery as well and believe me I am grateful for that it’s enough doing everything else, it also means I think, I can list products on here again though this has not been tested yet, in fact this post is kind of a test post as so far I have only listed 2 beanies on gumroad and here is one

Buy my product

I am now going to test this and then post the results for now though I have tweeted it and that test worked so it should work here as well, if it doesn’t I think I may well cry so onwards and upwards 🙂
