Starting Sara O Jewelry has been a long time coming. It is hard to believe that I am finally brave enough to take the plunge. I’m proud to announce my new ownership of http://www.SaraOJewelry.com. All that I need to do now to make it really official is file for my tax id number and start loading some designs into my new etsy shop.
Although I am not going to officially start promoting Sara O until January 2012, I felt like it might be nice to keep track of my steps for others that might want to follow. Since it was scary and overwhelming for me, I figured that it might be scary and overwhelming for others to start their own jewelry-making business too.
Here is my getting started list:
Decide on a Name (much harder than one would think) Facebook Fan Page Twitter Account Etsy Shop Decide on an Email Buy Web Domain http://www.SaraOJewelry.com Start Blog and Create Tabs: Blog, Bio, Contact, Shop Link Everything Together Point Domain Name to Blog
- Set Up Business License
- Decide How to Package and Ship
- Etsy Shop Policies – Returns, Exchanges, Shipping, Etc
- How to take funds – Pay Pal, Swype, Etc
