Well, I’ve just renewed my Folksy Plus account after opening my shop a year ago. It took me 7 months to make my first sale and I was starting to despair but then that magical first sale happened and by the time I needed to renew I’d made 9 sales and covered my Plus account fee with a bit extra on top. I feel that this is probably a reasonable achievement in my first year - at least I managed to make more than the fee!
I just wondered how this compares with other people’s experiences of their first year. How successful was that first year for you and how did you feel about things on your first anniversary?
One of the lovely things about my experience so far has been discovering the forums and the family of like-minded, craft-loving people that are keen to help each other out, so I’d love to hear your views of your own experiences.
