This week has been really eye opening. It’s amazing how much small businesses in our communities can suffer when we’re not able to show up for them.
It’s something that really hits home with me because my family and I have many locally owned businesses that we absolutely love and want to make sure can survive this whole Coronavirus situation.
So today I want to share with you a design that I made that you can use to not only show your support to the small business that you love, but also to help your own little small craft business if you have one and your sales are suffering.
But first, can you see how this design would look great on a tote bag that you can use while shopping for groceries or picking up take out for your family? I can!
It would also be great on a t-shirt that you and your family can wear around town to spread the message. It’s a one color design that you can cut and put on a t-shirt in no time at all.
HOW CAN YOU USE THIS DESIGN IN YOUR SMALL CRAFT BUSINESS?
First, you can start offering both shirts and tote bags to your local community for sale. Download this design and put it out there as soon as possible.
You can price them at your normal price, which hopefully includes “profit for you” and you can even choose to donate a part of your profit to your favorite local businesses.
This might help your customers buy from you knowing that they may be helping more than one small business at the same time.
P.S. If you have not yet downloaded our FREE Pricing Calculator spreadsheet to help you come up with prices for your crafts that include profit for you, what are you waiting for? DOWNLOAD IT HERE.
The most important thing that you must keep in mind right now as you start noticing that new sales are not happening with the same consistency that they have in the past is that your customers are not buying their usual items.
There is no baseball games, so no baseball mom items are selling. No one knows if they’ll be having birthday parties or family vacations this summer because everything is closed down right now. People are not yet planning for the Easter holiday, because they don’t know if their plans will come to fruition.
What they are shopping for right now is all things Coronavirus, home school, quarantine and social distancing. And the main reason for this is that it’s what is on their mind right now. It’s all we can seem to think about while the uncertainties are still out there.
So knowing this can help you come up with more creative ways to keep your small craft business afloat.
Use designs that people are drawn to right now and position them in ways that lets them know that they are helping out YOUR small business and potentially other ones in their communities.
People DO want to help you!
