If you have the skill to produce any sort of craft, either paintings, sculpture works, cloths, beads, bangles, bracelets etc, making use of the online avenues created by the existence of social media network will be a very good way to market your business and have lots of sales. Even big corporations today makes use of the social media to sell their products, so why won't you or me make use of it to sell our crafts?

I am into art and craft a lot. I have sold a few of them for charities and few for business but mainly they were sold in some stalls or exhibition. The few orders that I get are through word of mouth. Many of my friends have suggested me to use social media to cash my skill. But I have not yet started with it. I need to have a collection of products before putting them on sale. Most of the things I make are for my house or of I have an order.

Yes having a Facebook page for your products is a good way to promote your business. You can invite people and friends to like your Facebook page and share it further. This really helps a lot to promote your skill. One of my friend is into craft and handmade jewelry. She is doing very well through Facebook.

I have seen some exquisite beads hand made phone cases and they look very beautiful. It takes strong conviction and commitment to use beads to create a beautiful phone pack. I can only craft bangles and necklace but phone packs are impossible for me because they look difficult to do.

It is a great idea to sell our craft online since it is the fastest way that we can advertise our products worldwide. I am sure that through the help of social media sites, many people would have the interest to buy our crafts.

It's one of the great benefits of the new technology. If an individual has the technical know-how in setting up an online store where they can display their products, that would be an advantage. The fact that many people are now switching to buying online because it is more convenient for them. However, this kind of business requires a lot of studies and preparation in order to be assured of success.

Personally, I am looking forward to having my own online shop too. But I need to conduct a thorough study of the system before I jumped in.

Many people nowadays are establishing an online shop because of wanting to have a larger group of buyers without the need of physically visiting the shop. It is now becoming a trend to some social media sites and I have a friend of mine who are doing that kind of business and I see that he is doing a great job.

I agree with you, and this is one of the best business too for those who have limited time but want to have business. They can setlle the orders after work and set the delivery during their rest day.

You can sell your craft on Zazzle or etsy. These ecommerce markets specializes on crafts, even though you can sell almost every thing on these stores. However, in order to sell crafts, you need craftmanship. This is not for everyone.

Zazzle and etsy specailizes in selling hand made items. however, you can also try ebay as it is the largest marketplace for selling online. Or, perhaps create your online store and sell your crafts. I have see a lot of people sell crafts through their website. Another alternative is selling via facebook marketplace.

Yeah, I'm aware and heard of zazzle and many are really able to make good money from it. I think there are plenty of other good websites as well which can help us earn more by selling craft.
