Making Money with Crafting

There are two primary ways to make money with crafting. Selling and Teaching

To sell your products, I highly recommend investing in a wordpress website (use Wix or something similar if you aren't technical) and/or a facebook page. Keep your bio description personable in order to connect with your audience.

The next step is making MONEY which you can do by setting up an Etsy store and is fortunately very easy and free!

List your products and take some great photos of your products. You can easily set up your products to be customizable.

In order to teach crafting, you will need a place to market your classes and a crafting room in your home to host the classes.

Unfortunately craigslist has added a $5 per post fee to market your site. This is where Hostible.com comes in! You can post as many classes as you want for free!

Be sure to post a nice description of what kinds of crafts you will teach your students to make and some photos!

You can even get creative and combine a fun experience with crafting like Tea and Painting or fireside knitting classes!

Sell Handmade Wood Art, Furniture or Teach Woodworking

Woodworking is an art and the market for handcrafted furniture and decorations is off the charts!

If you don't have much experience in woodworking yourself, head on over to youtube. There are countless videos full of helpful tutorials.

Making Money with Fishing or Hunting

Guided Trips, Youtube Videos and Commision are all possible ways to make money with fishing and hunting.

Start by building yourself a website with Wix or a similar tool, and a facebook page to create an online presence.

Head on over to Hostible and create a free profile with several different hunting or fishing trips. I'd suggest a small 2 hour trip, a medium 8 hour and large weekend trip or something along those lines.

Remember, you aren't trying to compete with the huge outfitters. You are offering a local insider's expertise without all the food and supplies. They should provide this!

Once you've posted your trips, record a few videos with fishing and hunting tips. No need to have professional equipment to get started. Just use your smartphone!

Also be sure to sign up for a youtube ads account to earn residual income from your videos.

The final method of income is commission. Think taxidermy references, local sports shops, etc.

As you provide services as a guide or YouTube videos, you can promote products and references in exchange for comission.

Grow Produce and/or Teach Gardening and Homesteading


Use your green thumb to grow produce and pass your expertise in the garden to others!

With health consciousness growing and demand for homegrown produce skyrocketing, this is the perfect time to become a local gardening and homesteading expert!

Next, create a free profile on Hostible with classes covering a range of topics related to Gardening or Homesteading. You could create a raised-beds class, or a beginners beekeeping course. The sky is the limit for what you can create on Hostible!
