Keeping up to date with what is happening in the jewellery industry is important and Benchpeg is the best way to do this.

The Design Trust is a fantastic site in it’s own right but I love the advice column from the Design Doctor. Look through the questions to find just the advice that you need too!

Even if you’re not selling on etsy, the seller handbook is a fantastic resource for anyone selling online including advice on photography, branding, pricing, marketing etc.

Prefer to sell face to face and find craft fairs and markets in your area? Try stallfinder. You enter in your postcode and find events in your area and details of how to apply for a stall.

Google analytics

If you already have a website it is worth using google’s free analytics tool to look at your web traffic, where it is coming from, how long people stay on your site etc. It is a complex tool so you need to spend a bit of time working out what you are looking at but it is invaluable to help you adapt your website, find new places to advertise etc.
