#happyhandmade week one hundred and three

Welcome to #happyhandmade, the original social sharing collective showcasing makers & their shops across various platforms - all brought together in a neat little bundle  to help makers get discovered and help connect artisans with fresh, new, handmade lovin' people!

If this is your first time here, you're in for a sweet surprise! This collective generates between 2,500 - 3,500 click-throughs to participant's shops every month! It is one of the top free ways to connect with other makers & drive new traffic to your store with minimal effort. 

Not only do you get the exposure from this post here, but also from all the people who share your products via Twitter, their blogs, Facebook & other social media platforms! 

Join in & be a part of the largest collaborative marketing effort in the maker movement! 

Also, each week there are SIX chances to be featured, either as staff pick or most viewed - so be sure to  share #happyhandmade with your friends, family, Etsy teams, in forums and Facebook groups you are a part of - the more people seeing this link up, the more people shopping & seeing your goods and the bigger our #happyhandmade community grows! YOU radical makers, crafters & indie business owners are what makes this event so awesome, and I appreciate you all so much for helping me spread the word about this great handmade collective! 

This week's Staff Picks:

Link up to three {3} handmade products from your shops below! 
  • Share at least three {3} items from this collection (not yours) via social media
(Please do not Pin items to Pinterest without express permission from the creator)
  • Spread the word! the more people who hear about it, the more exposure everyone gets!
  • Please show your support of handmade and leave a comment listing your favorite three products from the link up that you shared!
What can you link up? Handmade products, art prints, and any designs you personally have created and had printed in small batches on clothing, fabric, notecards, etc. So long as you made it, you can share it! 

What you can't link up: blog posts, Facebook pages, giveaways, tutorials, items that are factory produced, supplies & vintage items. This collective is to connect handmade shop owners with one another and promote one another's products, so all links you share should be to an individual product in your shop. 

Click "add your link" - this opens a new window. In the first box put the URL to your INDIVIDUAL product listing, not your shop home page. In the second box, put a description of your product. In the third, your email address. Then below that, chose a product image for the thumbnail. Easy peasy!
