How these three (or maybe just one????) designer makers are improving their marketing with BuzzRamp

"I've increased my instagram audience 20% month on month, seen sales increase and appeared on the radio" - Chanelle Joseph (Studio Nelle)

"I've dramatically increased my instagram following and sold out a record number of workshops" - Gemma Winter (It Started With A Stitch)

" BuzzRamp has given me the motivation to add more than 500 quality instagram followers. I've now passed the 1000 followers mark" - Sarah Richards (Olive Road London)

PROBLEM 1: TRYING TO DO TOO MUCH

A common mistake we see with designer makers when they first start working with us is that they are trying to do 5 or 6 different kinds of marketing at once. They feel pressured to build a facebook, instagram and twitter account, as well as putting press releases out and writing blogs. 

The truth is even a full time marketing team would struggle to do all of these things well (and they must be done really well to cut through all the noise online). 

Gemma's said: 

"I was struggling to know which information regarding marketing for my business was actually relevant and valuable to me. I was spending a crazy amount of time trying to cover all bases, with so much conflicting information out there about how and when it should be done."

THE SOLUTION: GET FOCUSED

Going through the process of setting up BuzzRamp encourages our users to really think about what's important to them. 

But as a rule of thumb each type of marketing you decide to do - whether it's blogging, making videos, instagram, or pinterest -  should take roughly four hours work a week. So choose the type of marketing that will resonate best with your audience. 

Gemma said:

"Since working with BuzzRamp, I've slimmed down the platforms I'm targeting which in turn has given me more time to make, along with making the time that I do spend on marketing so much more productive."

PROBLEM 2: NOT BEING CONSISTENT

THE SOLUTION:  

Gemma Said:

Thanks to the consistency within my social media strategy that I've gained from working with BuzzRamp I’ve added 20% to my instagram following every month, and been selected to take part in Lincoln’s first ever Etsy Made Local event. I’ve also sold out a record number of workshops and have had to add more dates which have also sold out!
