Business Tips from Owner of HKelly Designs and The Fashion Stop
My name is Heidi Kelly and I am the Girl Boss and designer of HKelly designs (www.HKellydesigns.com) and The Fashion Stop (www.thefashionstophk.com). HKelly designs is a fun and funky handbag company designing handbags to get you noticed. The Fashion Stop is a social media group to help further Indie designers, makers and businesses related to fashion and beauty. In the days of Fast Fashion we have come to realize that there is a need to show the humanity behind Indie brands that don’t always have the funds to play with the big boys. We are spreading the word on cool, fun and funky people living out their dreams.
So now for my favorite business tip… Social Media! Some are afraid, some don’t know how and some just totally discount it! Don’t! I used to hear, “You can’t sell on Facebook!” Well, guess what, I was. Almost all of my sales come from Facebook. I have had a presence on it for years and as soon as I made my first bag, I posted it and almost immediately, a friend said, “Can you make that for me?” Umm, yes and soon I had a business. Right now the only place I sell more is when I have a home party!
