I love helping makers to sell. Handmade in Norway was started to create a nationwide creative network in Norway. I help individual makers, artists, designers and artisans to flourish and grow their creative business.
I offer a range of specially tailored services to support creatives that are starting their journey to setting up shop and sell their products. No matter how long you have been selling, there's always a way to do it better!
If you're right at the beginning of your adventure then do check out the Handmade in Norway Academy. There are loads of free resources in there that will help you to zip through the basics and build your handmade brand confidently.
Whether you're just starting out or you're well on your way, there's always a place for a helping hand and a personal cheerleader!
Social Media takeover
I have built Handmade in Norway up from a fledgeling Facebook group to a thriving network. How? By utilising social media for all it's worth. Now you can benefit from everything I have learnt, and reap the rewards! I am offering three packages where I will take over your Facebook or Instagram (or both), and build up your following for you. Getting followers is one thing, but getting loyal followers is a different beast altogether. I know how to find the right people for your creative business!
One week of posts. One post each day, for seven days, made directly to your Facebook page. Either using your own images or images/ graphics that I create for you. This is a good option when you know you won't have time to post yourself because of other commitments.
One month of posts. 15-20 posts posted directly to your FB page over the course of one month. Either using your own images or images/ graphics that I create for you.
Full Facebook page management (minimum period 3 months). A full Facebook page takeover. Let me do it all whilst you reap the reward of new followers, better reach and more potential customers. 15-20 posts per month using your own images and images/graphic that I create myself. I will optimise your page to grow substantially in the period that I am in charge.
Design & Refine
Working on your branding. social media, print? It's not as easy as it looks, and it's very time consuming if you don't know exactly what you're doing. Do you know what you're doing?
With over 20 years of design experience, and my own branding strategies. I can help you get ready to launch your creative business. Because building a cohesive, recognisable brand is essential to planting your products firmly in your customer's memory. Get it wrong, and get forgotten.
Contact me for an informal, no-obligation chat about where you start, and how I can ease the load.
You are a resource of knowledge and skills. You can share that with others by collaborating with Handmade in Norway.
Together with other artists, I have arranged many creative workshops. From calligraphy, watercolour and sewing to optimising a Facebook page for selling creative products. So I'd love to hear from you if you too want to arrange workshops but don't know where to start, and you feel you don't have a large enough network to find customers. Together we can make the world a prettier place and share valuable skills. Because Handmade in Norway has the network and you have the skills.
So let's create amazing workshops together!
