With last year’s surprise of the Covid-19 pandemic, local business owners were suddenly forced to adapt to the new norm that is “Social Media Marketing.”
In today’s modern age of technology, there are so many possibilities when it comes to selling your artisan items. As a Filipino artisan, you create and proudly sell your Artisan products to the marketplace confidently without a doubt that someone will appreciate the value of your work.

Whether you have your own website or sell your artisan products on sites like Lazada or Shoppee, one of the challenges you will face is trying to get your products in front of your customers.
In the modern age of Social media, today’s Filipino artisans can easily promote their well-crafted handmade products through various marketing outlets, you can easily create a Facebook page where you can promote your masterpiece.
Yet with millions upon millions of Filipino artisans out there, you might be wondering, how do I gain a competitive edge? If you’re new to this you’ve probably seen tens of thousands of advertising on your screen teaching you how to sell and make money with Ecommerce.

The Hidden Gem Of Artisan Selling
If you want a real competitive edge over your competition, you need to learn real world strategies and when it comes to selling online it’s better if you have customers coming to you, instead of you coming to them.
