Keep It Simple - Women Entrepreneurs Tips for Success

Wise, yet simple, advice from LMK Quilts , the next woman featured in this series on tips for success.  LMK makes gorgeous quilts, table runners, potholders, knit items, and even lace doilys.  She is constantly listing new items on Etsy.

LMK shares the following:

Promote Daily
Renew something everyday.  I usually relist in the morning and evening. I need to be cautious because my bill can get quite large if I get carried away with the renew button.

Use Twitter and Facebook to share new listings.

Treasuries seem to help get your shop noticed.  You will be in more treasuries if you feature others in treasuries.

Stay Current 

Try to keep up on new and current fabrics. Even simple patterns look modern with a current fabric.

Listen to Your Customers

They can give you ideas for new products.

Have the Best Photos Possible

Find a unique way to display your items. A lot of people know my quilts just by the way I drape them over the chair.  I have found that I need to take my pictures in my front porch in the morning to get the most accurate color with no shadows. 

You can find LMK on facebook.

 She also has quilting services available, contact her on her website.
