If you love crafting, then you likely already have what it takes to turn your passion into a well-paying side gig. Here’s how to make easy extra cash by selling crafts:
The basic rule of profitability is to buy low and sell high. Think about the crafts you can make for a relatively low cost. Some ideas to consider are:
When pricing your crafts, you’ll want to take into account the cost of your raw materials, marketing expenses, the quality of your product, and your time, as well as what buyers are most likely to pay for crafts like yours. You can do some research on fellow crafters to see how they price their items.
To sell your crafts, consider using a marketplace like Etsy where people already shop for handmade items. There are some fees involved in owning an Etsy store, so take those into account when pricing your products.
If you want to make sales face to face, check out local craft fairs in your area. You may have to pay a small fee to set up a booth, but you’ll have plenty of foot traffic to make up your investment.
Make yourself a Facebook page or Instagram account for your crafting business (it’s free!). Tell everyone you know about your crafts so they can follow along and share your wares with their own audiences. You can connect with buyers on social media and ship your products to them directly, all while gaining attention for your new venture.
