Social Media & Marketing Tips for Vintage & Antique Dealers – Vintagepreneur
I’m so excited to announce the launch of a new project – Vintagepreneur! Vintagepreneur.com is a platform for vintage and antiques dealers who really want to embrace social media, blogging and online marketing but are a bit overwhelmed. Owning a vintage business is overwhelming. Most dealers are too busy or overwhelmed to deal with social media and online marketing. But it’s sort of a catch 22 for most dealers – how will people find you and your merchandise if you aren’t putting yourself out there?
I’m a teacher by trade, so I have always tried to teach and coach my vintage colleagues about blogging and how to use these really cool internet tools to help them with business. So this new site came sort of organically. I teach so why not teach something I am passionate about – social media and vintage! I even adopted the title of Vintagepreneur. I think it describes me well! I am so excited about the possibilities for the platform. Mostly I wanted to create a space where I could share all the stuff I have learned, the mistakes I have made (and how to avoid them), and help people use social media to grow grow grow!
So if you are a vintage or antiques dealer, currently or aspiring, or know someone who is, please send them the link to Vintagepreneur.com. I’m really hoping, as vintage and antiques folks, we can learn from each other.
And I have a special launch gift. When you sign up for the mailing list, you get a free eguide! FREE! It’s my top three must use social media sites for your vintage business. I even give you examples of vintage dealers and influencers who are using the sites very effectively.
This is a scary, exciting, thrilling, feels right, announcement. Thank you for all your support and I look forward to seeing some of you vinties on the other site!
