Description

How do I attract more customers to my store? How do I get more sales? How do I book out my shop’s events and workshops? How do I do retail marketing and social media for my store? These are the questions that creative retail business owners ask Wendy Batten, creative retail coach and mentor. Wendy works with creative shop owners all over the world and with industry leaders. Her speciality is working with creative retailers to get control over their brick and mortars to avoid burnout and overwhelm while achieving more success and profits. In Creative Shop Talk, Wendy digs into the problems and solutions that “accidental shopkeepers” and hobbyists turned retail business owners face.

Each episode is designed to help busy and passionate creative shop owners take action, work through their overwhelm and get focused on strategic business areas.

Turn to Wendy Batten to take the proven steps to achieving your dream store, living your creative life and helping your amazing customers.
