I wrote this detailed guidebook to show you how to sell your artwork and handmade crafts on the Internet and will walk you through every step you need to become a successful online seller. Starting with your Etsy shop and expanding into all areas of Internet sales and promotion, the goal of this book is to help you become fabulously successful with business techniques that enrich your life!
My book is filed with real-life examples of successful artists and crafters selling their beautiful, homemade creations on Etsy, eBay, Fine Art America, Zazzle, Amazon Marketplace, their own websites and much more. You’ll learn about the pros and cons of all the major art and craft sites, as well as tips for creating your own craft store art gallery website online.
There are tips on creating a sound business plan, and the best practices for accounting, packing, shipping, and customer service. Take yourself and your work seriously!
Learn techniques for writing about your artwork so customers can find and buy your amazing items! And since we know it’s all about the photos, you will discover tips and examples for taking professional-level photographs yourself.
You'll find guidelines for building a marketing strategy that actually fits your lifestyle, including how to increase sales through online networking and social media like Pinterest, Twitter, blogs and Facebook.
The Everything Guide to Selling Arts & Crafts Online has a 5 Star rating on Amazon, with 33 fabulous reviews. Sure, you can get it there for the typical Amazonian discount.... but I encourage you to connect with me personally and buy it here at Etsy. Buying (and selling) directly from the person who created it makes all the difference!
