Questionnaire Response to Questions #4, #5 & #6

A huge thank you and a big hug to my blogger friends Carol, Valita, Carla, Linda, Anne, Emily, Heaney, Zlatina, Lisa, Neha, Helen, Diane, Duendes, Dorcas, Rhonda, Paola, Kimberly, Jill, Megha, Maggie and Jamie for taking the time to respond to the questionnaire!

Questionnaire Response to a combination of questions #4, #5 and #6:

Do You Sell Your Work/Tutorials On Your Blog?
Do You Create Videos?
Do You Advertise?

(work/tutorials) No. I wish I could. I need to learn more about that.
(video) No– would like to but I don’t have the necessary technology.
(advertise) No, does it help?

(work/tutorials) Yes.
(video) Yes.
(advertise) Yes.

(work/tutorials) I don’t sell any of my work on my blog. Nope.
(video) Don’t have the time. (I have 2 boys, aged 4 ½ and 2 ½ - I say no more!) (advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) I am not selling on my blog, but I have my own website and there I sell my creations.
(video) No I don’t.
(advertise) No I don’t.

(work/tutorials) No.
(video) No.
(advertise) I link to companies but don’t advertise as such.

(work/tutorials) No. I don’t sell anything or charge for teaching, but I love to help anyone who asks for it.
(video) No.
(advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) No.
(video) No.
(advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) Yes, sometimes.
(video) No.
(advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) N/A
(video) N/A
(advertise) N/A

(work/tutorials) Well, I would love to sell. I have posted tutorials as well (to date only one).
(video) Not yet.
(advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) I sold my finished creations at craft shows.
(video) I did not create a video and will not create a video.
(advertise) I don’t advertise.

(work/tutorials) No.
(video) No.
(advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) Yes, when people ask me – but I do not live this work.
(video) Do not create videos.
(advertise) Do not.

(work/tutorials) I have an Etsy shop, but have only sold one item. Again, I don’t have enough confidence. I think that there are millions of crafters out there that can make beautiful things on their own, so why would anyone want to buy mine? (video) No.
(advertise) I have an FB page.

(work/tutorials) I have a link to my Etsy store on my blog where I sell some of my cards.
(video) No.
(advertise) I occasionally advertise things like blog hops and events for stamp companies.

(work/tutorials) I don’t sell anything on my blog. However I do have a few shops that do sell handcrafted items and they take a lot of my work.
(video) I have a few DVDs that I provide for local crafters in SA as well as I do a few workshops a month.
(advertise) No I don’t advertise. Mostly people know about me by word of mouth and since I had a shop and have been working in the industry a number of years, they know me. I also have been a guest on a few TV shows locally.

(work/tutorials) I don’t sell on my blog, but I sell on my website – only my work, no tutorials.
(video) No, I don’t know how to do that yet.
(advertise) I tried but it’s only costing me money and not generating work so I’m stopping.

(work/tutorials) I have used my blog to show people the kits I have for sale and have sold kits that way.
(video) I created a few videos, I would like a tripod before attempting this again, as my homemade “camera holder” crashed a few times.
(advertise) No. I think it’s a good idea tho.

(work/tutorials) No.
(video) I’m trying to learn – it’s tough.
(advertise) Nope,

(work/tutorials) No. Anything on my blog so far is free for anyone to try. All I ask is that they give me credit for anything that I created.
(video) Not for my crafting.
(advertise) No.

(work/tutorials) No, but I’ve thought about it.
(video) No, but I’ve thought about it.
(advertise) I have a Facebook page, but other than that, no.

Tomorrow's responses are to the question #7:

It is interesting to think why I visit a blog. I always try to visit those who visit me. What I look for is someone of similar tastes, up to a point. I also like to see what others are doing, whether I can find ideas there, and if I can pass on any help to them. Glad you liked what I did. It is always good to read the opinions of others. Maggie
