Sell Handmade Crafted Products or Teach Others Handmade Crafting
Do you have a knack for crafting? Maybe you have nbt even tried crafting? You can use pinterest to get ideas and build an online presence.
With the rise of interest in rustic and hand-crafted decor, now is the perfect time to capitalize on your crafty abilities!
Making Money with Crafting
There are two primary ways to make money with crafting, Selling and Teaching
If your goal is to sell your products, I would highly recommend investing in a wordpress website (or use Wix or something similar if you aren't technical) and/or a facebook page. You'll want to 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. Fortunately this is very easy and best of all, free!
Take some great photos of your products and list them for sale. You can easily set up your products to be customizable as well.
In order to teach crafting, you will need a place to market your classes and a demonstration room in your home to host the classes.
Craigslist used to be a great option. Unfortunately, it has gotten clogged with MLM schemes and they have also 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 complete description of what kinds of crafts you will teach your students and add some photos of your work!
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 demand for handcrafted furniture, art 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 Woodworking
Like handcrafting, Selling and Teaching are the two primary ways to make money with woodworking.
To sell your furniture and/or art, it is also very important to create an online presence with a website (use Wix or something similar if you aren't technical) and/or a facebook page. Don't forget to keep your bio description personable in order to connect with your audience.
You can also sell your products with Etsy, or put advertisements in the local paper.
Building repeat customers is critical to success in this business. So focus on selling in your local community and building relationships.
A cool artistic sign in your front yard can really help build local awareness and it could also be your first woodworking project!
When it comes to teaching, you will also need a place to market your classes and a shop to host the classes.
Unfortunately craigslist has added a $5 per post fee to market your site. This is where Hostible comes in! You can post as many classes as you want for free!
Be sure to post a nice description of what kinds of wood project you will teach your students to make and some photos!
Provide Local Fishing or Hunting Expertise
Love to hunt or fish? Do you have an insider's knowledge on the best fishing holes or hunting spots?
Provide invaluable expertise with that insiders knowledge with guided hunts or fishing trips!
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 it is a good idea 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 gardening skills to grow produce and share 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!
Making Money with Gardening and/or Homesteading
Selling, Videos and Teaching are all great forms of income for your home garden or homestead.
As we've mentioned before, build a website and/or facebook page to create your online presence.
Selling your produce is most likely going to be done at Farmers Markets and a roadside stand at first, later you can build a large clientele that become repeat customers.
Next, create a free profile on Hostible with classes or experiences 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!
Once you've posted your classes on Hostible, create a few videos with gardening or homesteading content. There's no need to have professional equipment to get started. You can just use your smartphone!
