Could You Be Selling Your Crafts?

Spread the love

Being able to craft and make things of your own is one of the best things that you can do with your time. After all, in a modern era where most of us spend our lives sitting in front of screens with our brains turned off, being able to make something with your own two hands that you can actually be proud of is a wonderful alternative.

That being said, what if you want to take things a little further with your crafts and actually start to earn some extra cash from it? More and more people are trying this out as an option but it’s not always easy. With that in mind, here are some things that you need to do in order to start making money from your crafts.

How to Start Selling Your Crafts

Make sure the quality is high

The first thing that you’re going to want to make sure of if you’re going to start selling your crafts is that the quality of them is high enough that they’re actually worth selling. After all, if you’re making things that you love but that aren’t really all that high quality, you’re going to have some trouble convincing people to pay for them.

Make sure that you’re using the right materials like high-quality fabric and card, shimmer paint and quality pens. Your materials need to be high quality but you also need to be sure that you, quite literally, have the skills to pay the bills.

Once you’ve got some crafted products that you want to sell, you have to figure out where to put them. Etsy is often the best place to start since setting up an Etsy store isn’t going to cost you and it gives you access to a huge potential customer base. But it’s also a good idea to set up things like a Facebook page and Twitter account that you can also use to promote and sell your crafts to as many different people as possible.

Figure out if people want them

The sad thing is, it won’t matter how well made your crafts are if people don’t actually want them. Look at the things that you’re making and try to do your research to figure out which ones are actually going to sell. The best research that you can do is to just talk to the people in your life and find out which ones they prefer. That knowledge can help you avoid wasting time trying to sell crafts that no one wants.

Of course, there’s no reason why you have to try and turn your crafting into a money-making scheme. If you want to keep it as a hobby that you do for fun and to make gifts for the people in your life, there’s absolutely nothing wrong with that. And even if you do decide that you want to make some money from it, there’s nothing wrong with keeping it as a little side hustle rather than trying to turn it into a full business.

I think it’s also important to make sure the market isn’t saturated with what you want to sell. Right now, personalized signs made with the Cricut are extremely popular in my area. So many people are selling them that it’s not really a good time to get into it.

I love the ability to craft something, and reach a buyer through online marketplaces! It really gives a sense of self achievement when someone buys a product, because it’s like they validate the effort you made.

Very informative, I agreed with the quality point. If we focus on products quality like apple. People don’t hesitate to pay a lil bit more + they will always be our loyal customer.
