How to Start a Business Selling Arts and Crafts Online and Offline

Do you love to make art? Do you wish you could make a living using your creativity? Do you like to make crafts and are looking for a side hustle?

You can sell your arts and crafts online (and offline) and make real money!

Creating unique pieces of art comes easy to some people. Knowing the ins and outs of actually selling arts and crafts can sometimes be a little tricky. This book is designed to help those of you who want to sell your creations online or offline. It may be much more fun to create things than it is to do all of the research required to get you on the way to actually selling your arts and crafts.

When I was in college, my major was business, and online companies started to pop up more and more. The great news is that you don't necessarily have to major in business to make and sell your goods. However, there is a wealth of information that will help you get up and running in the right direction.

I have not personally created art or handcrafted items for sale (I am not that creative!), but I have a business degree and have consulted with friends to help them start their arts and crafts businesses. I decided to lay it all out in easy-to-understand terms so that you, too, can make money doing what you love!

I will show you how!

This is not a business textbook. I have done the consulting work for you in one book, so you can get started right away. You know you have the urge to create; why not make money with it? There is a demand and market for creative, handmade items; you just have to know how to access those clients.

In my book, you will learn the ins and outs of making a business selling your handmade art and crafts. You create with passion; sell with pride!

A really uplifting listen

Thank you so much for this fantastic book. It was great to listen to something that takes into account the current COVID crisis and both on and off-line arts and craft selling. I now have some great ideas to take forward.
