You may remember Stitch from my podcast with one of the co-founders a while back (which has some amazing info for creatives - you can listen to the interview here if you haven't already), but recently they went through some changes and now Stitch is even more awesome! And that means good things for the backend of your biz.
So what is Stitch? If you aren't familiar with this SF startup already, here's the scoop... You have lots of things going on with your crafty biz - managing inventory, orders, contracts, and invoices and everything else that goes along with it. Stitch streamlines your online and offline sales, making it easy to manage the less glamorous stuff (yep the inventory, orders, invoices, contacts) so that you have time for fun stuff - brainstorming, designing, and creating your products. Stitch integrates with Etsy, Shopify, BigCommerce, ShipStation, Google Drive, and SAIL, which means it can help you sell your wares online and off.
The website has been redesigned and it looks beautiful AND a FREE forever pricing plan was recently introduced, which is huge, considering so many makers and artists are on a tight budget. Now that there is a no-cost plan, you have every reason to sign up and see what its all about.

Today I am chatting with Willo O'Brien, co-founder and VP of marketing at Stitch Labs, a San Francisco startup with an amazing platform for shop owners and creatives alike. I really believe in this product as an extremely helpful tool for online business owners like yourself, which is one of the reasons why I asked Willo to do this interview. The other reason is because of what she did before joining Stitch Labs... running a successful shop of her own + a consulting biz at willotoons.com.
So today, we'll be talking about a little of both. Willo is sharing her valuable insight on the inner workings of running a product based business and all that it entails, along with practical tips for shop owners that you can start implementing right now to grow your business! And of course, we'll talk about Stitch Labs too.
Here’s what Willo and I discussed in the 45 minute podcast:
-The power of in-person networking
- The ins and outs of wholesale VS consignment
- Tips for staying organized + on top of things when running a small business
- Tracking your sales and inventory + the importance of having metrics
- How Stitch Labs can help you with all of the things above
- And more
More about Stitch: This online tool can help you manage your inventory (as well as orders + contacts), track stats, automatically re-list products (on Etsy), create line sheets for wholesale, and a whole lot more so you can concentrate on making awesome stuff.
