3 Reasons Why Now Is A Great Time To Start Your Own Stampin' Up! Business

Starting next week there will be a very special offer for those who are looking to join my team and start their own Stampin' Up! Business, so for this week's Find Out About Friday I thought I would share some thoughts on why now is a great time to do just that.
The news is full of stories about recession, economic doom and gloom and industry cut backs, and I am sure that even if we have not been personally impacted by the recession we know someone who has been.  We have all also seen our bills rise without the same rise in our income.

Despite the economic climate Stampin' Up! has flourished and grown by an average of 80% year on year - incredible growth which shows no sign of slowing down and there are a number of reasons for that.  

The Crafting Industry is Growing

In stressful recessionary times people the research shows that people are looking for an escape, something that gives them a sense of pride and satisfaction and which makes them and others feel good.  In an increasingly fast paced and on line world they are also looking for something which helps them slow down and reconnect by making something tangible.   Crafting fills this need we all feel and the growth in the crafting industry reflects that.

The Crafting Industry is more accessible than ever

The popularity of shows such as the Great British Bake Off, the Great British Sewing Bee and Kirstie Alsopp's Homemade made programmes highlight this trend for crafting and introduce new people to the idea of making themselves.  It is estimated that the total income from homemade contemporary card making businesses alone is worth in excess of £457 million pounds.

The ease with which handmade projects can be shared on line and via things like Facebook, You Tube, Pinterest, Instagram and Twitter also boosts the accessibility of crafting and helps people know they too can make beautiful things.

Direct Sales is Growing

Direct Sales, where businesses provide products without a fixed retail location, is not a new business model, but it is one which is currently experiencing a revival.  The Direct Selling Association estimate that sales of £2 billion were generated by direct sellers in the UK last year.  The flexibility of a direct sales business allows people to build a business on their own terms and around their other commitments.

This makes a business such as Stampin' Up! ideal either to provide some financial freedom, to replace an income or to pay off some bills.

Their research also shows that those who are passionate about their products and what they do are the people who do best - and lets face it as crafters we LOVE what we do and we LOVE to share it with others!  

And that is not all

These three factors alone would allow you to start a business which is likely to do well.  However, as I often do, I am going to provide you with some extra reasons why joining my Stampin' Up! Team could be a great decision for you...
