Marketing and selling
your product or service is critical to building a sustainable business. Knowing
the right market for your product is the first step and easier than you think.
The focus of the Market Support programme is to open up a wide variety
of opportunities for craft producers and designers to enter the market; and to
create platforms from which leads, orders and sales can be generated.
Market Support provides opportunities for all levels of designers and
craft producers – from emerging through to export-ready. We assist in matching businesses to a range of relevant channels, from
local craft markets to national and international trade and consumer events, as
well as supporting B2B matchmaking. We also help you prepare for these
opportunities to get the most out of them.
While we work hard to create sales platforms for you, we don’t do the
selling of your products or your business. You need to take the initiative and
be proactive in marketing your product.
