1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Help with expanding sock empire. on: October 28, 2008 11:27:20 PM
I work for a small business that makes knee socks. It's me and the owner right now and we are trying to expand our market but we've been having a hard time getting out of our region. We manufacture our socks in Korea with original designs. It's definitely a niche market so it's been hard trying to search online for reps because I don't really feel like we fit what I've found and I don't think we are big enough yet to hire a rep that would only represent us.

We really want to find some sales reps in states not on the West Coast but so far haven't had much luck. We have one rep right now in Northern Cali.

So my question is, is there a site out there or anyone here who can recommend some good reps? Ideally we'd like to find one as far away from the West Coast. Smiley

Any help would be greatly appreciated.
2  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / how does one get press? on: February 11, 2004 02:09:02 PM
I have an online business and it's doing fairly well but there's one thing missing.  I'm completely clueless how to get press for my site.  How does one get featured or write ups in magazines?  Or other websites?  Do I contact said magazines or websites?  What is proper ettiquete when contacting press?  Should I make up a press packet to send out?  What should it include?  

And lastly,  is there anyone reading this who could recommend magazines or websites that are diy business friendly that would even be willing to review or plug my shop.

Am I the only girl in Southern Oregon who is crafty?  Is there anyone else out there?  I really want to start organizing craft parties and was wondering if anyone who posts here is from Southern Oregon. Currently I live in Talent and go to college in Ashland.  I'd really like to meet some crafty people around here.
