Today, we’ll be tackling the issue of multiple target customers when I answer the question, “I sell crochet products and patterns. Do I need to have two separate businesses?”
Our question was asked by Melanie of Timmel Crochet. Melanie sells finished dog hats and accessories and, also, designs a variety of crochet patterns. Won’t you pop on over to her blog and give her some love?
Then, tune in to today’s episode of the Dear Crochetpreneur podcast and learn how I handled this issue in the past, what I would do differently (if I had it all to do over again), and how I deal with it today with my coaching and design businesses.
Whatever you choose for your business, I’ll also offer some suggestions for things to think about to maximize your marketing efforts. Take a listen. Then, scroll down for more resources and ideas for identifying your target customer and honing in on your niche in order to grow a profitable crochet business.
