With it becoming an ever more popular marketing tool, sharing your work on social media has become the norm and can generate sales.
People are now sharing videos of workspaces, techniques, live action videos of work in progress etc.
I was just wondering how comfortable you are with not only giving glimpses into the person behind the business but also sharing techniques and skills you’ve learnt over the years?
I personally like to see who runs the business that I am buying from - I enjoy the little stories behind the work. I enjoy watching how people produce and package their items.
I do show little glimpses into the background of my work but I’m not a natural teacher and there are some aspects of my work that I wouldn’t want to show every step of. (I share on Instagram and Facebook mostly and occasionally on Twitter)
Are you happy to let people see how you make your work from start to finish or do you think some things should remain a mystery?
Obviously there is no right or wrong answer to this question as some people are happy (and generous enough) to share everything they have learnt along the way and others will be less comfortable doing this. I was just wondering what you thought about it and how much you have embraced the use of social media to promote yourselves?
