1. Wix for website, 1and1 domain, weaning off of Etsy. Etsy fees vary month to month.
2. Myself (I’m actually really proud of what I did :))

Social media marketing
1. Create engaging posts; post photographs; keep customers up-to-date.
2. Learn how to cultivate an engaging feed; tag photos to reach largest audience; take bright, attractive photos/videos of products & production.
3. Cultivate strong branding so that people can immediately recognise Multiway products “in the wild”! Logo, look & feel, unique designs, etc.
1. Already owned
2. Already purchased
3. Already purchased
4. Taking customer feedback & industry trends into consideration when designing new products, such as patch designs.
1. Shipping integration
2. Packaging materials
1. Shipping is integrated with Etsy, but not with Wix. I am currently looking into Shippo to process my shipments for my independent site. Shippo will allow me to integrate with Canada Post to get the best shipping cost, print labels, and even includes tracking, for an average cost of 0.10$ per shipment.
2. I currently have about 200 shipping envelopes, but also require address labels for small national shipments, and paper for all packing slips and international/parcel shipments.
Cost – varies shipment to shipment!
