As we go on with the Crafting for Profit course here at Organize Craft Supplies, our next step is to be ready for internet sales. Putting your handcrafted goods up for sale on the internet is an efficient and effective approach to reach customers. But it is imperative that we make it very apparent that this will need effort. The same type of labour that is necessary for every business to succeed.
Do Your Homework First
It is imperative that you get acquainted with online marketplaces even if you are not currently using them or have never heard of them. You have access to a number of resources that may assist you with your sales. You must have a thorough comprehension of how to interact with these websites. Every one of them offers lessons that walk you through the process of opening your own store. How to put up some very impressive presentations. The manner in which sales are handled. Learn the fundamentals first by reading up on the topic, then moving on to more advanced topics.
We won’t get into it here since different locations teach you different things. Instead, we are going to provide you with advice that is applicable to all of the sites. And provide you with methods that may help you maintain order and command over your life.
The following are the best places to start browsing online. But before you decide, do a bit more study and go online for alternative possibilities.
- Etsy.com – here you set up a shop all your own, design it how you like and sell within their categories of hand crafted items.
- MadeItMyself.com – another site designed around selling your unique hand crafted items.
- eBay.com – yes, the famous auction site is another place to sell your craft items.
- Zazzle.com – for designers and artists, you put your designs on their products.
- CafePress.com – similar to Zazzle, where your designs go on their products.
- Redbubble.com – another artists’ site geared for more artistic works, again your designs, their products.
You have to pay Etsy, MadeItMyself, and eBay a modest fee in order to post your items on their websites. Additionally, you have to pay a tiny percentage of the final sale price of your item if it is successful in selling. You are entitled to a commission via the last three platforms, namely Zazzle, CafePress, and Redbubble, if one of the products bearing your design is purchased.
Crafting for Profit Online Preparation
Make sure to take high-quality images of all of the products you want to sell, regardless of where you intend to sell them. Your photograph will be the deciding element in this case. Consider the implications. Your prospective customers do not have any method of physically touching, examining, or observing the products you are selling in person. They will put more stock in your photographs than in any other evidence.
You are going to provide them with a description that details the product’s measurements, the materials it is made of, etc. That will only improve the picture of the item being sold. Consequently, it is essential to take images that are crisp, clear, and of high quality. Keep reading if you want assistance with capturing photographs. It will be covered in one of our next articles. Practice is required in the meantime. This point can’t be emphasised enough by us.
The Business of Crafting for Profit
Therefore, you need conduct some study to find out where the various internet locations are. Find out more about them, including their policies and costs. Make a decision on where you want to get started. Get some experience behind the camera. Get your craft supplies ready and put them away in the right places. If you haven’t already, you should obtain some business cards for your craft company and be ready to give them out everywhere you go. You are currently engaging in crafting for financial gain. You should be concerned by this.
Finally, you should continue to follow this series. We are doing all in our power to ensure your success.
