    I currently am thinking & working on options of sales venues... I don't like selling through friends, but at the same time I don't know how to reach the local public... thinking abt starting with a facebook page

    Hi everyone, I'm new to this forum.
    A few months ago I started making dog collars and selling them on Etsy.
    I would love it if you could take a look at them and share your thoughts!
    My etsy store is called CeresandCo

    thanks so much and Happy New Year,
    Marlies

    A lot of people will tell you it's a difficult, or 'saturated', market no matter what you are doing/making. The key becomes finding your niche.

    I started at farmers markets and now do a few big craft shows throughout the year. I also sell in a few stores across the country.

    Is anyone struggling with craft shows or looking to try a big one this year?

    I sold on the craft markets for 25 years and there are hundreds of tips I could give you.

    The biggest one will be this, if you are full time, you need a website and a lot of things like keywords etc.
    But while you are studying and doing it part time, you have to do this.
    Make a lot of stock, a mountain, before you go onto a market to sell it. I promise you that if you take a few items to a market you will be lucky to see even one - BUT take 300 pieces and you will possibly sell 100.
    It works I have seen it happen many times over the years.
    Do not mix your products - like socks and wooden toys for kids. stick to a type.

    make a few very big or very expensive items, maybe 10 or so.
    Price those ones at double the normal price, and then those people will ask for that price - get shocked, ask about the Normal items and think those are cheap and will more than likely buy what you wanted to sell in the first place.

    Try to make what sells already - go and see a few markets to see what others are selling.

    Ask the organizers if you can book well in advance, so that you know for sure that you will be allowed onto that market with that product idea. then go and make and make and make and make some more.

    good luck

    I use my Facebook and Instagram account to sell my items. I send them through parcels and I do meet-ups once a week

    There are a lot of ways to get started slowly, and as many ways to get to start big.
    I suggest that you start on your local craft markets. Facebook is a lot of work. A self hosted blog/shopping type site will get you the fastest sales if you set it up the right way. You could start to see hundreds of sales within a few weeks of starting your site.
    You could also sell on Etsy - it works well, but you compete with many people.
    And then Amazon FBA is brilliant. you need stock though, and some knowledge on how to do it.
    I can help with all this if you need me, contact me.
    in the meanwhile - go for it.
    it is the best way to start - as nike says... just do it

    I would love to do an interview for my site on how you are doing this. how long it took , what methods you apply everything. (I will reward you with some of my courses for free if you do it )
