Nicola Smith Founder of A Handcrafted Business Members Club

Have you got the right support and guidance to help you make money from selling your handmade products, art, or craft supplies or from teaching your craft?

I know the difference the right support makes! All those ‘can I do this?’ worries and concerns disappear magically in a puff of smoke.  OK, not in a puff of smoke exactly, though having somewhere you can go to get the guidance you need, where you can learn about business and marketing, be inspired, and where you can get help from people who really care about you and your business success is actually even better! 

A Handcrafted Business Members Club is the most amazing group of creative, friendly people who will support you, champion you and want the best for you, and that is just your fellow members!

You also get me, Nicola Smith.  I’ve been where you are, I know all the marketing tricks and techniques, how to take great photographs (I used to be a professional photographer), how to build websites that sell, how to use email marketing to get sales and I ‘get’ social media too. The best news is I’m really good at sharing all this and showing you what you need to do and making it all do-able for you too.
I teach you what you need to know and give you the guidance and support you need to make it work for you, so you can have the creative business you want!

I’ve been running A Handcrafted Business Members Club since 2013, time flies when you are having fun!!  I love it and I know it really is the bees knees for anyone running a handmade business.  

Make, Believe to Succeed!
With love, Nicola

My hair isn’t blonde now and the Academy is now called the Members Club, but everything else in this welcome video is still spot on!

“Hi Nicola, Just want to thank you for believing in us and giving us such great support, guidance and advice (and the occasional kick up the backside!). Since being totally fearful about putting myself out there on social media, and consistently marketing my work, my followers and subscribers are slowly creeping up in numbers, and orders are coming in. Rome wasn’t built in a day, and nor will my business, but it is growing, and I am getting braver. Just wanted to say that and thank you! … Brilliant value. I don’t think I’d still be going without your advice and support.” Liz Hill

I highly recommend you join  the Members Club nothing is too small and the extra help is amazing. I’ve learnt so much on the business side. Sarah Davis

I love your Q&A’s I have learnt so much Nicola Smith in the short time I have been a member, looking forward to more xx Audra Pardoe

I was very cautious when I first joined, but soon learned what a lovely friendly bunch you all are. The help and support that Nicola gives each and every one of us is phenomenal. I’m so pleased that I took that first step. Thank you Nicola and all of you. Perry Noon

Frequently Asked Questions

What is a Q&A?
Q&A’s are when you can join in a live group chat.  You can ask as many questions as you want  and chat with me about your own business.   (Well actually I chat via a live video feed and you type in the comments.)  You can question me live, or ask questions in advance and catch the recording.   I regularly screen share and show you a live how to as well, or follow up with a how to video.  Q&A’s are about every two weeks – all the dates are available in the Members area, and are either on a Tuesday or Friday morning.

If you would prefer a one to one session with me each month then look at VIP Club Membership.

What is the Facebook group for?
Whether you have a question, an idea or if you want to brainstorm an idea, or you need somewhere to celebrate, rant, be kept accountable or just pop in for a craft business natter.
I pop into the Facebook group several times a day,  and of course you get help and support from all the other wonderful members who understand exactly where you are right now.  This is the most genuine and supportive group I know on Facebook.

What are ‘ready and waiting for you marketing tutorials’?
You get full access to 9 ‘must know’ tutorials (see below) as soon as you join A Handcrafted Business Members Club.

 It sounds great but how will it actually help me grow my business?

Building a business on your own can be hard, having someone and somewhere you trust and where you know you will get the best advice for you makes the world of difference.

Friends and family either tell you how amazing you are or knock you down or bombard you with so many ideas you don’t know where to turn next.
The Members Club  is about building you up (making sure you believe in yourself), opening your eyes to opportunities, inspiring you, motivating you and about showing you how to do things too.    

It is about giving you guidance, and support when you need it and making sure you are charging enough for your work.  This support means you do more marketing, which means you get seen more, and get more sales.

 

In the Members Club I teach you what you need to know and give you the guidance and support you need to make it work for you, so you can have the handmade business you want!

 

It sounds wonderful, but how much does all that cost? 

It is wonderful, which is why I want to make sure that this is everyday expert handcrafted business support at an affordable price!
Remember I have had my own handmade business so I know where you are at right now.

It all sounds really helpful and I am very tempted, but I’ve only got your word for it?

Here are a few words from some of our members, so you don’t just have to take my word for it.

I am a club member and been there for a number of years, its somewhere that’s safe being I work on my own, to talk and get support, anyone thinking about it can recommend it Evelyne Sydric

I had followed Nicola’s Facebook page for ages but never taken the step to join the Members Club. I have a small and variable income each month and I was hesitant to spend £15 of my hard earned cash on something that I didn’t know if it would bring results. However once I took the plunge, I haven’t regretted a thing! Nicola is amazing and knows so much, and the support in the group is unrivaled. My sales have increased and I feel so much more knowledgeable, and only after three months! 🙂 Victoria Sol

I’ve only been in the club for a few days, but already my motivation is sky high. I’m finishing off little jobs, planning new lines and actually doing all those other “I’ll do that tomorrow” jobs on the page. I’m enjoying the behind the scenes of the business for the first time in ages. The club is incredibly friendly, it feels a little bit like the back of the classroom! Lisa Carter

The best decision and investment I’ve ever made with my business was to join the Members Club. Without Nicola I would still be running around like a headless chicken, getting nowhere. I’ve learnt how to work ‘on’ my business as well as ‘in’ it. I’ve recently upgraded to VIP membership, which is worth every penny, and I wish I’d done it sooner.

I was feeling like I couldn’t see the woods for the trees before I joined. I didn’t know how to market and didn’t know how to best use my time doing it. I still have lots to learn and know I’m in the best place to do that learning!! Also the support is amazing! Vicki Gregory

“Nicola Smith I am not quite sure how I came across you and I know I should because since then you have paid a very significant part in Mae and me. I can do what I do but anything else, well… so that’s when you come in.  Yesterday’s session was so inspiring and I just love how you keep me focusing and going down the right road.

Before I spoke to you I was at sixes and sevens thinking ‘when am I going to do that’ ‘haven’t got time to do this etc. I know I have said it before but I am going to say it again, I am glad I now have you in my life and wished I had known you long ago. I would certainly recommend you to anyone.  You are excellent at what you do and I know now that I have the confidence to succeed, thank you.” Sue Jennings

Mae and Me

I’m new to the membership club, but it’s already having a positive impact on my business. Being held accountable, in a lovely happy environment, is working wonders for keeping me focused and on track.
