Retailer Case Study- Bowerbird Designs

Perth Upmarket is all about helping creative people to develop thriving businesses.  We want to provide them with opportunities to reach customers that they may not have access to on their own.  We help them to sell through our Upmarket events, but we also want to help them to be successful in between markets.

To help creative people get started we developed our signature course…”Taking your hobby to market”.  The course is ideally suited to people who have an idea or started a hobby and want to take it to market. It’s also suitable for people who have done a few markets and need a bit of support to help them move forward and make sure they have considered all the parts to running a successful creative business.

Gail from Bowerbird Designs makes handmade concrete pots.  She has done a few markets and was eager to learn more to move her creative business forward.  Gail recently enrolled in the Taking your hobby to market course and this is what she had to say.  “ I have just completed the course and I am really excited about all the information I now have to make a success of my ideas! I found the article on how to extend your market day reach especially useful- will be printing that off and pinning it up in the studio…thanks Justine – I am inspired. ”  Gail- Bowerbird Designs

Since completing the course we have seen Gail review her market operations, review her pricing and maximise her Facebook page.  She has been active in the private Facebook group and shared her experiences with the group.

If you have an idea or a hobby and you would like to start doing markets, or, if you are new to markets, you might be interested in learning more about our course.
