Lucy has helped me truly find my niche, which led me to my perfect customer. I've made so many more sales (and made so much more $$$) than I would have without The Marketing School for Makers!
One of the absolute best parts of the program is the community. I am a solo business owner. No one else in my life is a maker, an Etsy seller, a small product based business owner, so as supportive as my friends and family are, I was really lonely. I had no one to ask my millions of questions, no one else to say, "oh yeah, that's hard for me too!"
In our Marketing School for Makers community, I had a like minded group of (mostly) women who understood what it was like to be doing this on my own...in addition to being a mom and a wife and having a bajillion and one things to get done everyday. I wasn't alone anymore!

In 2020 during the pandemic, I needed to get up and running online: I wanted someone I could understand and trust. Lucy was a "real" person and I was comfortable with her right away.
Since enrolling in The Marketing School for Makers, I have launched my own website, grown my email list from zero to almost 500 subscribers, and my overall sales continue to grow year after year.
My advice if you are considering enrolling: just do it! There is SO much to gain if you want to learn from experience and create new opportunities for you and your business.

I was new to the arts and craft business. I had done a few in-person shows, had a cute set up but didn’t want to tote my stuff everywhere. I realized that I wanted a way to sell my pieces without always doing shows.
I now have a website, an email list, and am active on Facebook and Instagram. I’ve also met some amazing and supportive women through the course.
My advice to anyone who is thinking about enrolling in The Marketing School for Makers: Make the investment in yourself and your business. It is worth it!

I started my handmade business in 2010, and after setting up my craft table in more school gyms, church basements, parking lots, and fairgrounds than I could count, I realized that I did NOT love the constant ‘weekend hustle’ of setting up at shows nearly as much as I loved meeting the people who would buy my work.
I had this idea that makers like me had to set up at markets and fairs to make money...which was soooo 1997! With social media, blogs, email, and websites, I had the power to reach beyond my little community craft show and expand my reach farther than I could have possibly imagined.
Fast forward to today, where I have helped hundreds of makers find and connect with people who will actually buy, without having to pop up at a market every weekend.
I invite you to come on in and join the Bloom community: I’d love to tell you how I can help you find the people who will buy your stuff!
