Transforming your passion into a source of income: selling jewelry online
It seems that talented and/or experienced artists don’t have trouble finding inspiration. They can find inspiration literally everywhere around them. For instance, some artists love to focus on nature. There are artists who find urban places more inspirational. In the recent period, there are more and more people who are creating jewelry. They believe that making jewelry can help them release their creativity and they use this activity to save money too – instead of buying expensive jewelry they can make their own jewelry that definitely suits their personality, preferences, and desires.
If you are one of these people then you know exactly what we are talking about. But, do you know that you can use your talent to make money? Have you ever considered selling your jewelry? There is a chance that you have thought about that, but after making a brief analysis you gave up. We can’t blame you. You were probably thinking about the costly rental of a store where you can showcase your work, the possibility that you will need to hire a sales person, the cost of advertisement, the cost of having a storage/warehouse etc. But, the thing is that you have forgotten one option that can eliminate almost all these challenges and issues – a chance to sell online jewelry you’ve made at home.
Opening a store on the Internet is a very simple task. Obviously, you won’t need a physical store to offer your jewelry and you won’t need to invest in warehouses or marketing, at least not that much. The best part is that even if you don’t have experience in web design, you can create an online store on your own. You don’t need professional help to design and publish a website like this even though you can still use the help of a professional website designer and developer.
The simplest solution is to use an eCommerce platform like WooCommerce or Shopify. They have pre-made templates/themes, and all the features you need for an online jewelry store. Obviously, if you want to get better exposure and start making a profit, you will have to invest in marketing. You can use social media and search engines for this purpose, but keep in mind that you have options for free advertisement too. Try monetizing your passion right now – open an online store where you can sell your handmade jewelry.
