How to Advertise Your Handicrafts

How to Advertise Your Handicrafts

Selling handcrafted items is a return on the investment of time, skills, and materials needed to make these items.

But no one will know what you make if you don’t advertise your creations.

Want to sell your handicrafts successfully?

Try to start identifying who is most likely to buy what you produce.

Then implement an advertising strategy that encourages this market to buy your creations.

Rent Booths

Craft fairs and bazaar events give way to display and sell your handcrafted items.

There will be many people who can see it.

Find interesting props to display your work so that buyers are attracted to your booth and take the time to look around.

Provide soft lighting for indoor events and a few mirrors if you’re selling things people want to try first.

Give people flyers with photos of your bestsellers as they leave the store so they’ll see your website the second they get home.

Social Media

Let others know you created something new by posting a photo and description on your Facebook, Instagram, or Twitter page.

Talk about what inspired the piece and how it could be used.

Set up a Twitter account so you can tweet information about the work you create.

If you enjoy writing about the creative process, start a blog and invite people from your Facebook and email lists to check it out.

The key to selling goods through social networks is to encourage people to comment or like your posts and share them with people who may be interested in buying.

Selling Online

Post photos and descriptions of your items on the marketplace, and let the bidding process run by itself.

Use a bright table or appropriate lighting to take pictures of your handcrafted items so they look professional and it’s easy to see the details of each part.

Set up a website with a shopping cart to sell more items online, and refer to the website via your Facebook, Twitter, and Instagram listings.

Spread Flyers

Advertise your items by leaving flyers at coffee shops, colleges, grocery stores, libraries, and community centers.

You can also ask the manager if they’d be willing to put your flyer in their grocery bag.

Use a tear-out at the bottom of the flyer with your website address and a five or six-word description of what you sell so people will look for your website when they open their computers.
