Hand Made in the UK had been around for quite some time. Heavily involved in the crafting scene in many different ways. It was created over 8 years ago as there were not many online sites offering shop front space for small craft businesses to display and sell their goods. We decided to create our own Hand Made in the UK shop was born under the brand of hmukshop.co.uk. The ethos was to create a platform that would offer anyone who wanted to sell their products a shop of their own at a price that was affordable for most and definitely a lot more competitive than Etsy, Ebay and the like. This would also allow the shop owners to control their own shops. We have also set up numerous social networking groups with the sole purpose of promoting small craft businesses. Over the years we have grown our following by sharing wonderful small craft businesses daily (never missed a day), this has paid off as we have over 50,000 followers on the main HMUK page and now have other pages on Facebook also sharing lovely crafters like yourselves with a following of over 15,000.
Instagram has more recently taken off and with almost 56,000 followers we promote pages daily, although it’s growing rapidly there is a lovely feel to the page with a weekly competition to win a week of shares the following week – there is a real competitiveness about the page but also a very friendly atmosphere with thousands of people taking part every week.
Our Twitter following is over 4,000 and growing.
With our vast experience of promoting small craft businesses through social media, forums and our own HMUK Craft Promotions directory website and blog which also has over 85k individual views we feel we are well placed to help you take your business to the next level.
