What Marketing Creativity is About

Marketing Creativity is here to help you market your hobby business into a handmade success. My goal is to help business owners (particularly parents looking for a flexible career) work from home doing something that they love. I have been selling on Etsy and writing about my sales and strategies for the last two years. This blog was born after I wrote my first post:
