    Your blog is an excellent tool for selling your jewelry online. In fact, many jewelry artists sell their work exclusively from their blogs.

    You can stir up your readers' interest in your work by blogging about how your jewelry is created, what's unique about a particular piece or component, what the piece signifies to you, what happened while you were creating it, etc.

    By Alice Horrigan

    This is a companion piece to my article, “Fine Craft Wholesale Shows: A Review of the Philadelphia Buyer’s Market Visiting Artists Program,” also on this site.

    In June, 2006 I attended the Philadelphia Buyer’s Market of American Craft Visiting Artists Program.





    Craft Show Experts We Need You

    The Extravaganza Craft Productions is looking for artists and crafters who are experts in their field to guest write articles to be included in the The Extravaganza Craft News.  Articles may also appear here on the blog, on Twitter, and on Facebook.

    Articles need to fit on 1 – 8 1/2 x 11 sheet of paper when divided into 2 columns approximately 600 to 750 words long.





    Craft Vendors Don't Lose
    Craft Craft Show Sales

    I received calls from craft show vendors and promoters with questions about my craft newsletter. They needed information about the newsletter and asked how to buy. I lost the sale when I referred them to my website because I’m not set up to take orders over the phone. What could I have done better?

    I could have walked them through the process. I should have guided them through the purchase rather than leaving them to visit the site on their own.

    Packaging Your Craft Show Products

    Need ideas for packaging crafts at craft fairs?

    Packaging crafts has always been a simple concept to me it never occurred to me to share. This wonderful post inspired me to share this packaging idea. Most scrapbookers and rubber stampers probably use this concept already. How many of you have thought to use it to package your handcrafted arts and crafts for sale?

    How to Sell More Jewelry with Volume Discounts

    Customers love to feel like they’re getting a good deal, so offering some items at “volume discount pricing” can net you a lot of extra sales and repeat buyers.

    For example, I have a big selection of very simple gemstone bead earrings with sterling silver earwires. I price them at $16 for 1 pair, $14 each for 3 pair, and $12 each for 5 pair. You’d be amazed at how many people automatically spend $60 buying 5 pair just because that’s the best price per pair.

    How Your Art or Craft Business
    Is Like Playing Facebook Games

    I admit it! I’m addicted to Sorority Life on Facebook. It's a game where you do things like the girls in a sorority would. You must add a certain number of new friends every level or you are bound to be beat. You send your friends gifts and vote for them etc.

    What does this have to do with my art or craft show booth?

    You only have so many friends you can invite each day.





    Research Art Trends Using Social Media

    Wondered what arts and crafts are selling well at craft fairs this year? Need to know what colors are in style this season? Want to know if one neckline is more popular now than another, for your jewelry or clothing festival booth?

    Facebook and Pinterest can help.

    They have derived ways to make people tell them exactly what they like. With some research on your part on Facebook or Pinterest you can also know what crafts people like.





    Is Facebook and Social Media Selling Art?

    Social media is working for my art business but I...

    • go where my customers (artists and crafters) are on Facebook, LinkedIn, etc. and post there.
    • post regularly and use scheduled posts.
    • use keywords  in my posts artisans and craftsmen use when looking for my products in search engines.
    • and use hashtags in posts so artisans looking for that topic can find my posts.

    Search keywords related to your handmade crafts in the Facebook search box.

    Interview with Artisan Blacksmith

    Interview with artisan blacksmith David Robertson
    www.artistblacksmith.com

    Shasta: Tell us a little bit about yourself i.e. how old you are? Where you grew up etc.?
    David: I grew up just outside of Hamilton Ontario Canada and I turned 44 this year. Once you get into your 40′s time seems to pass pretty fast.

    Art and Craft Supply Storage-Wire Cubes

    My adjustable shelves are really deep (18 inches) and my craft supplies are much smaller. Even 12 x 12 paper doesn’t use the space well. One thing really made the shelves much more versatile for me – Wire Storage Cubes





    Barbara Perelman of one of my LinkedIn groups had this great suggestion on how to sell custom arts and crafts on Etsy. I feel her suggestion could work any where you post your items for sale.

    " I do 90% custom knitting. I don't think many people read shop policies.





    Reasons Your Art or Craft Business
    Needs Social Marketing

    The idea behind a blog (and other social media) for your handcrafted arts and crafts is if someone comes to your craft show booth or online craft store but isn't ready to buy for any reason such as they don't have money right now, planning for a future purchase or occasion, love your product but don't need it right now, or are just looking...

    They follow you and you can continue to market to them.





    I just found this fun tutorial for handcrafted Barefoot Sandals and I wanted to share it with all of you. I thought it might give jewelry artists some more ideas for their handcrafted jewelry.

    Otherwise it's just plain fun for those of us who want to run around barefoot this summer.




    You need to be a great salesman to make money selling arts and crafts. The problem is how do I become a great salesman without becoming the pushy salesman?

    I have to admit I haven’t been the best example of a good art and craft salesman. Why, because I was always afraid of being too pushy.





    How to Know What Crafts
    Sell at Craft Shows

    Determining which handcrafted items will sell at craft shows is a hard process requiring research and testing.

    Every craft show buyer will have their own experiences, styles, tastes, and needs. Other factors play roles in sales such as local economy, demographics of residents, other events happening in the area, etc…

    How can you know if your art or craft will be a profitable business?

    Determine if there is a market for the craft you’re making.





    Crafts that Sell-Selling Customized Crafts Online

    Karen Hornsten of my LinkedIn group The Extavaganza Craft Productions shared this tip for listing customized crafts for sale in your Etsy shop.

    "If you go to your Etsy shop settings you can Go to the left side and look for Options.





    Have you used Google's Adwords keyword tool to find out what words people are using when they are searching to buy arts and crafts? https://adwords.google.com/o/Targeting/Explorer?__u=1000000000&__c=1000000000&ideaRequestType=KEYWORD_IDEAS#search.none

    I visited an Etsy store and right clicked to view the source code which is what the search engines use to view your store. What I found is:

    < meta name="keywords" content="fancy stone necklaces, wire wrapped pendants, hangings and suncatchers, stone bracelets, stone chain necklaces, men's collection" >

    I typed those keywords into Google's Adwords Keyword tool and learned.





    Do Sales and Discounts
    Hurt Craft Show Sales?

    Sales are tools in your tool box used correctly they will only help your craft show business, used incorrectly they can hurt.

    Use sales to push undecided buyers into buying crafts. Does this hurt your art business?

    The answer is based on many things:
    Everyone loves a bargain

    1. You get a sale you wouldn't have gotten otherwise.




    I want to thank Heather and her home economics class (especially Rebecca) for sharing this very interesting resource.

    Sewing Techniques for the Blind from National Federation of the Blind of Nebraska.






    Advertising Art Festivals is Everybody’s Business

    I struggled as craft show promoter figuring out the perfect mix of advertising for shows. Nothing is guaranteed with cable TV, internet, and satellite radio advertising has become more difficult. My advice to vendors and art festival promoters alike is this:

    Advertising craft shows is everybody’s business.

    Artists and crafters remember the more advertising promoters do, the more festival booths cost.





    Show Off Your Craft Show Display

    We are always being asked how to display different arts and crafts. We can't come up with a way to display every craft but we know you can.

    Send us pictures of your art festival or craft show booth and pictures of your products displayed on them. Include instructions on how you built it.

    If your display is chosen we will put together a blog post featuring your booth pictures and pictures of your products, instructions, and links to your Etsy, Artfire, LinkedIn, Facebook, Twitter, MySpace, and Pinterest.





    Holly Sennott creator of  Kooky Critters had this great idea.

    I was going through some old information I had gathered for my business when I found this article on how doing arts and crafts makes people healthier.  In this time of economic uncertainty and worry we could all use better health.

    Other ways that arts and crafts make these times better for us all. They give us a job and income that only we control (job security). They also give our local economy a boost as the more money we make selling arts and crafts the more money our city, county, and state will have circulating in it.





    Are Art and Craft Show Reviews
    Worth Their Weight in Gold?

    Gold BarAttending an art fair a few years ago I visited with artists and crafters. We discussed including art and craft show reviews in The Extravaganza Craft News.

    The positive to artist and crafter show reviews is craft show vendors don’t get suckered into bad craft shows where the promoter is not doing their best to advertise.





    Recently I’ve been working to make my business more profitable each and every day. Today it occurred to me that I should share with you how I plan to do that.

    Week one I worked on catching up on left over unfinished projects from previous weeks to prepare for my 30 days of greater profitability. As usual I accomplished some of the things I intended to do, did some things I planned to do later early, and didn’t accomplish some of the plan.

    Week two I learned new things about my email marketing to keep my messages from being flagged as spam.





    How Working Together Multiplies Craft Show Sales

    One day my sister's car slid off the road into a deep snowbank. It was very stuck trying to drive out did no good. 5 guys couldn't pull it out using their car. They all got out and stood at different points around my sisters car, lifted it up and put it on the road.

    One guy couldn’t lift the car alone, but together 5 of them easily moved it.

    Selling crafts is like lifting heavy objects.





    I have had a website for just a few years now. When I created my own website I knew that websites existed, that if you were looking for one you could type in the address or you could search for keywords to find them. I must admit I was pretty good at finding what I was looking for on the internet to. However I knew nothing about how sites were created, that you needed a host and domain registration, let alone anything about HTML, PhP, CSS, XHTML, javascript or anything else needed to create a website.





    Art of Turning Lookers into Buyers
    at Craft Shows

    Just as creating arts and crafts is an art, getting a looker to buyer at a show is an art. Encourage lookers to imagine themselves at home using or wearing your product.

    Every person is bombarded with advertising/marketing materials for hundreds if not thousands of items every day. They may need or want handcrafted arts and crafts but don’t have time to sift through all the information they see to find the ones they need.





    Found this great article containing 6 Simple Tricks to Make Money and Beat the Economy when selling your arts and crafts.




    By Natalie Goyette

    It’s not always easy. You have to be creative with how you pare your craft show costs down. That’s what I’m going to help you with. I think there are 4 main ways you can do this, without sacrificing the quality of your craft, nor affecting the overall sales.

    1.) Buy in bulk – You do it for your groceries in order to save a few pennies, so why not on your craft supplies? If you are buying pipe cleaners (for example) and you only need 10, it might cost you $2 – because you are paying for nice packaging and the convenience of only purchasing 10.





    My Art and Craft Supply Storage
    -Wire Cubes

    Wire cubes divided vertically for craft supply storage Standard wire cubes divided vertically.

    We were talking about how the wire cubes are nice if the things you need to put in them are 13 x 13 but most of us need some different configurations for our storage.





    Art and Craft Show Booth Etiquette for Artists and Crafters

    From the perspective of both a show promoter and artist one thing craft vendors at art and craft shows do that bothers me is not including the legs of their displays into the size of their booth.

    Having legs of art festival displays sticking into the aisles and booths next to them is hard for show promoters, dangerous for customers and inconveniences craft show vendors in booths nearby.

    Introduction to Artisan Blacksmith David Robertson

    David is a 44 year old blacksmith who grew up just outside Hamilton Ontario Canada. He has always been an artist who developed his talent for blacksmithing in college, and sold his work at shows to pay for school.  He has had his own blacksmith business 20 plus years.

    I recently went looking for OEM (Original Equipment Manufacturer) Software online since software is so expensive and I can very rarely afford it. What we found was Microsoft Office Professional Plus 2010 on sale from a company known as BetterSofts for $109.99.

As well as Microsoft Outlook with Business Contact Manager 2010, Microsoft Info Path 2010, Microsoft Share Point Workspace 2010, and Microsoft Communicator 2010.

    Craft Show Canopies are a Weighty Issue

    Weather can really affect how your outdoor craft show goes. Wind, rain, and sun are all considerations.

    A plastic cover and tarps can be put on sides of craft show canopies in case of rain. Weights for all four canopy corners are necessary, don’t count on driving tent stakes into the ground at most shows. Considering the overall weight is important as you must be able to lift them.





    Super Bowl Ads for Your Arts and Craft Show Business

    How many of you watched the Super Bowl just for the advertisements? Do you know how much advertisers paid to have their ad displayed during the Super Bowl?

    I admit I didn’t watch the Super Bowl, not even one second, not even one ad. I’m sorry if this upsets you.

    I almost missed this opportunity to learn from the mistakes of the big boys and use it to help my art and craft business grow.

    7 Common Disconnects In Retail Business

    By Pamela Grimm, Ideaco

    7.  No asking for the business: Not once did anyone say… “We want to be the store you come to for your crafting needs….we want your business!” There was no attitude of we want to impress you and guarantee your return to keep you as a customer.





    Recently I’ve been working to make my craft business more profitable each and every day. Today it occurred to me that I should share with you how I plan to do that.

    Week one I worked on catching up on left over unfinished crafts and business projects from previous weeks to prepare for my 30 days of greater profitability.

    6.  Lack of service options: In many stores, customer service failed miserably. Most think that service equals sales explanation, however it doesn’t; it equals a sales pitch.

    5.  Lack of sales skills: Too often a salesperson could give information, but not transition the conversation into a sale. More than not, staff members would walk away with apparently no regard for whether the customer had actually picked up the product or were going to purchase anything.

    What does Real Estate have to do with selling arts and crafts?

    The way I see it your art or craft show booth is kind of like trying to sell a house. If you try to sell an empty house people can’t see in their minds what the house will look like when it’s all finished, painted, furnished, and decorated. You will also have a hard time trying to sell a house that is full of clutter, people can only imagine that the rest of the house hasn’t been taken care of well. They will see that the house will be too much work and cost too much money.

    What is a Jewelry Shopping Service?

    copyright by Rena Klingenberg

    I first stumbled onto the “jewelry shopping service” approach to marketing my handcrafted jewelry a few years ago.

    I couldn’t believe I’d never heard anyone talk about this before – because it’s a wide-open field with TONS of opportunities to sell your jewelry. It’s the main way I sell my jewelry now. Personal shopping services are a growing trend in all kinds of market niches.





    Difference Between Creating Interest in Your Arts and Crafts
    and Getting People To Buy Your Crafts

    To have a successful full time business selling arts and crafts (defined as making enough income to support yourself or your family without having a part time job) two things must happen.

    1. There must be enough people interested in buying your arts and crafts.
    2. You must be able to persuade people interested in your art to buy.

    How to Sell Art Online
    Take Better Pictures

    When selling art online little is more important than quality of your pictures.

    You won't get many sales if the quality of the pictures make it hard for the buyer to see the quality of your art or craft. Worse yet bad pictures can make the buyer imagine your art is poor quality because you didn't care if the photos were low quality.

    Taking pictures of handcrafted art is something that overwhelms many artists and crafters.

    to Sell More Arts and Crafts

    Facebook is a great place to drive art and craft sales when your posts are providing value to the reader, but will harm your reputation done incorrectly.

    1. Encourage you to follow up with your customers
    2. Encourage you to use special offers in your marketing

    When you use special offers marketing arts and crafts you push buyers who are sitting on the fence off to the buying side by giving them a deal or adding value to your craft offering.

    I recently started using coupons for nearly everything I buy. Coupons and special offers have been the deciding factor when I bought many products I considered unnecessary luxuries (In other words I never would have bought them without the coupon, deal, or special offer).

    101 Reasons Your Customer Should Buy Handmade

    Customers at craft shows often balk at the price of handcrafted works of art. One reason is they are used to going to Walmart and buying imports at half the price.

    Help your customers realize the value of buying arts and crafts by sharing this article 101 Reasons to Buy Handmade.





    Help Your Art or Craft Show Customer
    Get What They Want

    How many times has someone trying to help you hurt your chances of getting what you wanted? Has someone with good intentions tried to help you reach what they saw as your full potential but actually stood in the way of reaching your dreams? Has a pushy salesman stood between you and the car you wanted trying to sell you a different one?

    Help buyers of handmade crafts who have an idea what they want, find it and sell it to them.

    7 Common Disconnects In Retail Business

    By Pamela Grimm, Ideaco

    Many of you have contacted me wondering where I have been; as you may have noticed, I haven’t had an article in this magazine for several issues. Well, here’s your answer.





    Recently I signed up to do business with a big company and have had nothing but a terrible experience. They have however helped me to realize what good customer service is and what it is not.

    Good service is delivering what was promised, on time. It is realizing that as a business person it is your job to deliver value for your customers dollars.

    Good customer service is having a way for your customers to reach you regarding any problems they are having with your art or craft, your policies or your business in general.

    With the New Year just around the corner I'm reminded it's tax time.

    We have more taxes withheld from our personal income than what we will owe. This way we can plan on getting a substantial return and therefore are motivated to get out taxes done early.

    How do you handle taxes for your art festival and craft show booth?

    Are you organized and have everything in file folders or do you have everything in a shoe box? How is your system working for you? Do you file yearly or quarterly? Do you know what is required of your business?

    Things you might need to help get your taxes filed in an orderly fashion ar




    Everyone who knows me knows how much I love HGTV. This week I was watching Unsellables and Sofie Allsop said something that made sense to me for craft show booths. Sofie said that in order to sell our house we have to make it stand out from the crowd.

    How do we make our craft show booth stand out from the crowd?





    Pilot artist space program launches in Pioneer Square, International District
    Artists invited to attend space workshop Jan. 7, take survey and apply for space consulting services

    SEATTLE — The Seattle Office of Arts & Cultural Affairs has launched the Artist Space Assistance Program (ASAP), a pilot program designed to provide relocation and placement services for artists and arts organizations seeking affordable studio, live/work, exhibition, performance and/or rehearsal space.





    Are you making money selling crafts in this economy?

    What crafts are you selling, are they selling well? Have your sales improved or dropped off with the “recession” and what are you doing differently that has helped or possibly hurt your business?





    “Your ability to discipline yourself to set clear goals, and then to work
    toward them everyday, will do more to guarantee your success than any
    other single factor.”
    ~Brian Tracy

    How do you know if your craft show booth is successful if you haven’t defined what success means to you?

    Does success mean money to you, if yes how much money? Does success mean time to spend with your family, how much time? Does it mean working fewer days and hours a week, how many hours a week is success to you? Does success mean working from a constant vacation-where, working from home, quitting your other job, or having a really great car -what kind? Does success mean talking to 100 people and getting the contact information for 25 so you can follow up with them?

    Write down your goals for your handcrafted art and craft business.





    I’m building the best list of art and craft shows in the US that Twitter has ever seen.

    I’ve started a list of artists and crafters that show promoters could visit looking for vendors of handcrafted items.

    Help me get the two groups together if you are an artist or crafter on Twitter follow me at http://twitter.com/#!/TheExtravaganza and message me.

    Message me your favorite art and craft shows that tweet and I will follow and list them for all to see.









    On January 7, 2011 I received this message from electric fence wire:

    “Thanks admin for sharing this and link back to http://www.xxxxxxxxxx.net website that can help people to know about an advantage of electric fence wire.”

    Why am I posting about this message? I am posting about this message because it is the kind of comment I get on my art and craft blog all the time. It proves that people are destroying their business reputations because they don’t know how to use blogs to draw attention to their business.





    I have an account on Twitter with 800 followers mostly artists and crafters. Each of them has several to several thousand followers mostly people who buy the arts and crafts they produce.

    What does this mean for your Fair, Festival or Craft Show?

    If you are not on Twitter you are missing a huge opportunity to build a loyal following of artists and crafters who are potential vendors for your shows as well as missing the potential customers that buy those crafters products.

    What is Twitter? It is a place people get together and share bite size bits of information about themselves, their business, and things they find interesting.





    Recently I’ve been working to make my business more profitable each and every day. Today it occurred to me that I should share with you how I plan to do that.

    • Day 1-Set a goal to do something to make my business more profitable each day for 1 month.




    Well before I use Pam Grimm’s article on the blog for the upcoming series I wanted to give you a brief introduction to her.

    Pam is a lifetime crafter but got into the paper arts business 17 years ago. She ran a successful retail and manufacturing business which had retailers seeking them out to help them break into the then new Scrapbook business. Ten years ago Ideaco was formed and has helped hundreds of retailers from independent to franchise in many different retail industries with their business development from ground up to expansion.





    Just wondering what types of shows everyone is most likely to attend? So I would like you to comment with art show, art and craft show, juried craft show, unjuried craft show, fair or festival with commercial vendors allowed, rodeo, home and garden show, bridal show, or other specialty show. You can comment here or on facebook at https://www.facebook.com/ExtravaganzaCraft.

    What type of show does your craft sell best at?





    Reasons Art Festival Customer Won’t Buy

    Customers won’t buy art from you if:

    • They don’t know where to find your handmade craft.
    • They aren’t prepared to buy now. For instance they weren’t expecting to see a handcrafted product they wanted so they don’t have money right now.
    • They don’t know what you are selling.
    • You aren’t selling what they want.
    • Your handcrafted art is hard to get, the wrong price or poor quality.




    Press releases are informational articles sent to the press. They are meant to inform the public of art and craft shows, and charity art events happening in the area. They are free and will be printed in most publications as space allows (so send them early and often).

    Press releases are a great way to advertise your art festival schedule and your craft product. A





    The biggest difference between craft shows and a trade show is the buyer who comes into the show.

    Craft shows buyers are end consumers-the person who will use the product. Trade show buyers are representatives or agents of retail stores. They come to trade shows to buy large quantities of various crafts which will be resold to end consumers.

    Representatives expect to pay lower prices than customers at craft shows (wholesale-usually half) because they need to mark up the price to make a profit on resale.





    Lets face it selling handmade jewelry is tough. Handcrafted jewelry artists need every advantage they can get. I found an article I think will help.

    Face Shape and Jewelry Choices by Barbara Van Look of Fire Mountain Gems is a very informative article. I thought it might help jewelry artists suggest the most flattering jewelry choices for their customers faces and increase their sales.





    License Requirements
    for Art and Craft Show Businesses

    Art and Craft Show Business License Is a license required for your art and craft show booth, art and craft show, or online art and craft business?

    It depends on your city, county, and state. Every city, county and state creates their own rules and regulations regarding business licenses and special event permits etc.





    Places to Look for Art & Craft Shows
    A Getting Started Guide
    for Beginning Artists or Crafters


    How do I find craft shows in my town?

    Looking for art and crafts shows occupies large amounts of time for craft show vendors selling crafts at shows. One time saving hint: knowing where to look for art fairs and festivals, and craft shows is key to saving time.

    For the longest time the only place to find quality shows was attend a craft show and talk to vendors about festivals they attended.

    Make Your Craft Show Display
    Stand Out From The Crowd

    By Amrendra Singh

    If you have decided to try your hand at setting up at craft shows, festivals, or flea markets, then you’ll need to have the right craft show display to make your wares stand apart from the rest. This is especially important if you are selling something like jewelry or any other staple craft show item.





    How to Sell Crafts Online

    Artists and crafters learn to succeed at your hobby as a business you need to market your crafts well.

    Marketing involves engaging your customers in a relationship building trust. The most cost efficient way is to use the resources the internet provides us. For instance online craft stores, web sites, e-mail marketing, and more. Click here to read Reasons to Stay In Touch With Art Fair Customers.





    There are many benefits to hiring your children to work in your art or craft show booth. Your children will learn responsibility and business skills while your craft business will reap the tax benefits. You can teach your child about scheduling, work ethic, entrepreneurship, setting goals and accomplishing them to the best of your ability.

    Give your child clear tasks and hold them accountable for accomplishing them.

    The law is simple treat your child like an employee :

    1. Have your child do tasks that are appropriate for their age.




    Buyers at art and craft shows love to hear the story of the person creating the crafts.  They love to feel that they know person they are doing business with and that they are doing business with a real approachable person.  This is an important part of the trust building process that must go on between a buyer and seller.

    A craft blog (short for weblog) is a great inexpensive way to share your story with buyers at the markets, both before and after they attend craft shows.  There are many different providers of free blogs including WordPress.

    Here is your chance to make a connection with a prime member of your target market. You want to get her attention, make a positive impression and get her interested enough to continue the conversation.





    Creating a Marketing Plan
    For Your Craft Show Business

    People usually require 7 or more contacts with an artist or handcrafted business to become comfortable with them.





    A business plan can help direct your business in it’s advertising and marketing efforts, help you get a small business loan, find investors, apply for grants or scholarships, or even help you sell your business.

    A business plan can consist of many things but a simple formula to create your own business plan is to write a few paragraphs about each of the following:

    1. The history of the business (if you’re purchasing an existing company or creating a business plan for a company that has been in business a long time).




    Reach Your Art or Craft Business Goal

    Set a goal for your art or craft business, then set a reasonable amount of time to accomplish that goal in. Working on it a little bit every day makes it nearly impossible not to accomplish it eventually.

    Setting a goal for your





    Attending Craft Shows
    Isn’t Just About Selling Arts and Crafts

    If attending craft shows isn’t about selling crafts what is it about?

    It is about selling crafts and many other things. A craft show is about knowing your customers, building a relationship with them, collecting your customers contact information and following up with them, and getting feedback about your handmade crafts.

    You are missing the boat if you base the success of a craft show solely on number of customers you saw, number of sales or dollars you made there.

    What would be easier trying to make everyone aware of and want your product OR trying to sell your product to people who already want it?

    A key building block to a successful business is knowing who your target audience is. Without knowing your target audience it’s likely you will spend your money trying to make everyone aware of and want your product instead of trying to sell your product to those people who already want the product you are offering.

    Demographics is the word used to describe the characteristics a group of people have in common.









    Use LinkedIn to Build Your
    Art or Craft Show Business

    LinkedIn connected me with many professional artists and crafters.

    I love when artists ask questions I never thought to ask, I learn from the answers they receive. It’s a great place to learn from those who are successfully selling their arts and crafts.

    I checked out LinkedIn this morning and came across this article on using this professional networking tool effectively.





    I was reading a post by Carla of Cobweb Corner and it got me thinking how she got her prospects (people in her craft show booth) into the buying mood making them buying customers.

    Read her post here:
    Jewelry Shows – There’s Something about a Sale

    The internet marketing gurus I’ve been studying suggest creating a loss leader (a product you lose money on in the beginning to get people buying).





    How to Price My Art or Craft Show Product

    Craft Show Price TagPricing art or craft show products is more science than art. Don't just set a price you think is okay and expect to sell a lot of your handmade crafts for profit.

    Cost to Create Crafts
    What does it costs to make your crafts? Include costs of supplies used to create your product plus a little more to buy extra craft supplies.

    The Consumer Product Safety Improvement Act is a new law coming into effect soon concerning the phthalates and lead contained in your arts and crafts. It will affect what art and craft products can be manufactured and sold especially to children.

    It will require the testing and certification of your crafts although all the products you use to create your art or craft should already be tested and certified for your own safety.

    Here is where to find more information:





    I am writing to tell you about a few exciting things in the works for the Arts & Craft Show Extravaganza.

    First of all I just finished a very inspiring interview with an inspirational artist and crafter, James Dillehay. I can’t wait to post the full interview. James tells us about how he gave up what was pretty much guaranteed to be a successful future to start his own business following his passion and how that led him to feel more successful. He pulls out all the stops and holds nothing back.

    Reasons to Stay In Touch With Your Craft Show Customer

    Personal Note To CustomersHappy Independence Day! I’m grateful for this nation and all the freedoms that we enjoy.

    I was writing to my customers, artists and crafters, wishing them Happy 4th. I realized I should write a quick note for every holiday and include them in my auto-responders (I can set the day they go out so they will deliver automatically).
