RUNNING A CREATIVE BUSINESS
I'm launching a new website!
I'm moving my project bag business away from Etsy onto hlh-designs.com - and I can't wait for you to see everything the new website has in store!
Official launch date & time is Thursday, March 8, 5pm CET.
I'm looking for an addition to my project bag team!
A freelance sewist based in or around Berlin, to be exact. The job description can be found on the new website come Thursday and I'm accepting applications via email.
Q&A: Email newsletters
The lovely Becky Sorensen asked a very good question on email newsletters and while I can't answer everything in details as this is also this month's Patreon video, I hope I was able to share a few helpful tidbits about how to set up a newsletter and when to talk about shop launches and such on it.
If you like the newsletter topic, I can only encourage you to check out the March Patreon video which is all about email lists. I just put it up and it's a good one!
