Meylah is an online platform for artists, artisans, and crafters to sell their products. They recently launched a new service – The Meylah Resource Center, which is designed for all businesses in the creative industry – not just those with Meylah shops.
The intent of the Meylah Resource Center is to organize various resources that every business (artist, artisan, small businesses) would need to help them grow. These resources are of the highest standards. This makes it easy for artists, artisans, and business owners to quickly find the help they need all in one place rather than trying to search the web.
The Meylah Resource Center contains resources and digital guides on all sorts of helpful topics. The categories of products range from $1-$5 services, ebooks, professional service, spreadsheets, tutorials, and workbooks. Several of the resources are also available for free download. Check out these informative resources for artists:
10 tips for pricing your products – This free ebook gives 10 strategies for pricing products, whether it be artwork, crafts and other handmade items. This will help ensure you to not over or underprice your artworks.
Printable Art and Craft Show Checklist – This checklist will help you organize all the things to bring to your next art fair or festival. This includes a list of recommended items, plus tips on attire for the craft fair.
