New Forum - Business Side

Recommended Posts

Howdy All.  Here's a new forum for those who are interested in the business side of the scrolling hobby.  Here, you can discuss topics from making a few bucks to pay for supplies, to a full on scrolling business.  

A few possible topics could include:

  • craft fairs 
  • consignment shops
  • online sales
  • Etsy
  • setting up business website
  • payment processing
  • selling patterns
  • marketing

I hope y'all have fun.  Enjoy the new forum. :)

Howdy all.  I hope you like the new section.  I could really use your help, though.  We already have a ton of great discussion threads in the General Scrollsawing forum about business stuff.  Could you do me a favor?  Can you go through the General Scroll Sawing forum, and flag good business discussions to be moved to this new forum?  It's a lot to go through and I can't do it alone.  It's really easy to flag, in the upper right corner of the first forum post, there's a link that says "Report Post."  Click that and in the message, just say "This would be a good discussion for the business forum." or something to that effect.  Either myself or a moderator will move the discussion to the new forum.

Thanks for your help!  I appreciate it.

Hello Travis, personally, I don't care for this or the other new forum section you've set up. I don't understand, why they could not have stayed in the general scrolling section? The more sections there is, the more confusion and double answers there will be. After all, aren't they just general questions and statements. I'm not trying to be difficult and maybe I don't like changes, but I don't like seeing everything being broken up into different sections being an improvement. I'm sorry for being so negative, I know you can't please everyone.

Len.

One of my roles here, other than providing a place for folks to chat and make friends, is to organize information.  I think there is enough content and interest to warrant a section about selling, craft shows, pattern sales, and other business topics.  I think it will be an awesome resource for those interested in this topic.  But don't worry, I won't be adding too many forums.  This forum and the Q&A forum are the only ones I have lined up.  And if it doesn't work out, I can always change it back.  With that said, I will be re-organizing some of the areas of the website to make things easier to find and in a logical place.  I'll be simplifying the menu, and at some point, Village University and Scroll Saw Reviews will be moved to their own section (but, I'm still working on the programming/organization).  I'll be adding other sections and features too.  My goal is to make SSV an awesome resource for scrollers.  I'm just taking it one step of a time.

Travis, firstly, thanks for all you do with Scrollsaw Village.  Not everyone is interested in selling their work just like not everyone is interested in Intarsia or pattern design for example.  A separate forum is a great idea, you can read or ignore it as you see fit.  Personally I am in favour as it is a subject I am interested in but each to their own.

I enjoy reading business and marketing subjects. I have always been my own employer so I appreciate this section even though my business days are over. I do think the Q@A could just as well remain in the General Discussion category.
