For some people building an online business is a marketing method rather than an entire business in itself. Those who take this approach can be seen on platforms such as Etsy, Dawanda and Ebay. All sorts of crafts can be found on sale online and they make perfect gifts. If fact the world is changing so rapidly that some items that our parents and grandparents took for granted can now only be sourced from a specialist crafstman/woman. The decision to build a craft shop online is for many lifechanging.
This course is ideal for the crafstman who has followed the basic steps within the 30 ways in 30 days course but want to increase their online impact and achieve further sales and increase their orders. If you havent done the 30 ways course first we do recommend that you do so because many of the skills introduced in that course will be expanded on in this niche specific area of online business.
The course covers the available craft platforms as well as building your own craft shop with a WordPress backend. Those that complete this course will receive a voucher to use on the WordPress for Beginners course. Additionally you will discover how to make your crafts visible using social platforms. These include Instagram, Pinterest, Vine and Facebook
Many people who work online, will develop their source of income and then write a book about it. This helps to increase passive income but also reinforces that you have become an expert in your area of employment.
