I am managing to tick goals off my list even in Lockdown! Yesterday, I had the pleasure of being a virtual stallholder at the Geeky Craft Market MMO Edition! I did not know what to expect, and figured I would not get any sales, or much engagement – going virtual is tough! However, I was pleasantly surprised to receive a few orders, and my Facebook page was boosted up in likes during the event. I did not expect to do so well, and I am super happy that I participate in this event… and it has made me more keen to look for further virtual events in the future!
So, how did it even work I hear you ask? Well…
“Sellers will post their makes, and you can peruse and buy. Each seller will have different processes; either follow a link, or comment on the item to claim it and organise payment through private messaging. Click on ‘…’/’More’ at the top, then ‘Notification settings’ then ‘All notifications’ to make sure you don’t miss out on any posts!” [source]
Here are some screenshots of my posts aka my virtual stall at this event…
It was great fun, but I am looking forward to Lockdown being over so I can get back out into the real world with my art again! We will meet again friends.
Stay safe out there.
Much arty love.
