This workshop session with Becka Griffin is ideal for people who have a handmade product, or an idea for one, and are considering starting to sell online.
It will give an overview of the various different online platforms available – and the advantages and disadvantages of each, along with talking about postage and packing, photography, the legalities of selling online, writing product descriptions and the concept and importance of Search Engine Optimisation (SEO).
