All of us enjoy creating woodcrafts. We love the smell and feel of the wood, adding our own touches to the design, painting to perfection, and finally, displaying for all to see and admire! Well, what if I told you that you could make lots of money by selling your creations? Yes, you heard right! A lot of people, such as yourself, hammer out a lucrative living by selling what they make. A person is lucky when they can combine their hobby with their career, and you can too!
So how is this done? One way is by selling your wood crafts right from your lawn. A lot of woodcrafters make great money by setting up gorgeous yard and holiday displays on their own lawn! Many people love to display cute and funny lawn displays, but don’t care to spend the time creating them. Some of them don’t feel like they can do it, while others don’t have the time. They just want to buy the finished product. This is where YOU come in! You can supply a valuable service to these types of people, by selling what you make, to them.
Another way to cash in on your woodcrafting hobby is by renting a booth at a flea market or craft show, to sell your displays and wood projects right off the table. These types of places are great locations to show off your woodcrafts, since the potential buyers came there to buy your type of products. These are quality prospects, and you will do great in these types of places!
In this age of tech nology, there is another way to show off and sell your woodcrafts… the Internet. Having your own website allows you to show the world what you have to offer. Now, instead of a few thousand prospects at a craft show, you have literally MILLIONS of prospects! A woodcraft website can be a very powerful tool in selling your hobby to the world.
So what sells the best? How do I get supplies at wholesale so I can make a bigger profit? What marketing strategies work the best? I am not a salesperson, how do I make this work for me?
