Synopsis:

If you create your own crafts and artwork, where can you sell them? Yes, you can go the rounds of local and regional craft shows; you can even set up shop in a local crafts mall.

Selling Your Crafts Online is the one book that guides artisans through the process of selling their handmade crafts online. It offers instruction and advice in how to prepare for online sales, where to sell crafts online, how to place and manage listings, and how to maintain a successful online business. The information and advice in this book is crafts-specific, and includes both general business advice and specific instruction for selling on the two largest crafts-related sites, Etsy and eBay. Artisans can use this book as a roadmap for creating a successful online outlet for the art and crafts they create.
