Google+ is one of the many social media available online that is overlooked by online handmade business owners. It has a place where you can also share and learn your craft product and experiences. I am talking about Google + communities.
Different than your personal profile in Google+, and your blog’s page in Google+, a community is just that – a community. A meeting place for like-minded individuals who want to share information, ask questions, and communicate around a specific topic.
A Google+ community is an online campfire. You might want to start a Google+ account if you have none to join communities’specific for creative artists.
Here are 7 Google+ communities perfect for a handmade seller like you:
1. 30 Minutes Crafts
