One thing that you need to know about selling your craft.

If I was going to tell you anything, anything at all, just one thing, I would tell you that “you can do it”.  Seriously though, it is really easy to get discouraged and to get overwhelmed by all of the little things that you need to work on.  It is so possible for you to do this, and to be successful with it.

Forget about all of the competition, and all of the free tutorials and patterns that can teach others how to do your craft, and how easy you think it is to make your craft (why would anyone want to buy something that is so easy to make yourself?), just throw all of those thoughts under the bed.

Because you want to know something, if these crafts were so easy to make that no one would ever buy them, there wouldn’t be a market for them.  If everyone was too concerned about the competition (and let me tell you, it’s highly competitive), then it wouldn’t be competitive.  All of those free tutorials and patterns that can teach others how to do your craft can also teach you how to be more efficient, faster, create higher quality, and offer you assistance when you need it.

hand-made crafts

All you gotta do, is work at it, keep getting better, keep learning more things, and don’t give up.  It might take a month or two before you see that first sale, but if you keep at it, you will see a sale.  It might take many more months before you start seeing a regular and steady customer basis, but if you keep at it, you will see those customers.

The only thing that I want to say to every selling their hand-made crafts, is to “keep on keeping on”, and swim as hard as you are able to.  Just like everyone is always saying, “you can do anything that you want to”, and, by Jorge, you most certainly can!!

  1. Absolutely! I sometimes feel bad, when new online craft sellers get caught up in the mentality of “If I list it, they will come” – they can’t quite grasp that it’s just not true. But I encourage them to stick it out and work hard at it, because persistence and consistency will pay off in the end.
