Quotable Quotes:

  • That’s what drives the sales: it’s personalities, connecting people, connecting with your story. They’re connecting with your creative way to make something. This human connection is really what makes the sales happen. It’s also what makes the fan base grow. 
  • Make sure you utilize video or gifts or anything that gets some motion happening on your website. Some visuals are good. Make sure you have customer testimonials on there because what other people say about your brand is way more important than what you say about your brand.
