    I am making a lot more money now

    I have been focusing all of my energy selling my products to friends and family but that doesn't make me very much money. I put a lot of time in to my crafts and I wanted to make decent money with them. This book really helped me market and sell my products online as well as offline and I am making a lot more money now.

    A must read for craft makers

    This is a great book. I have been making crafts in my home for most of my life. Some have sold and some haven't but I didn't know how to properly market my products. This book will teach you all of that. I am now selling my products on the internet and I am making a lot more money. A must read for any craft maker.

    Excellent Book for Beginner-Answers Questions A+

    I would highly recommend this book to everyone who has had a hard time getting their craft sales efforts off the ground. This book is the complete book and is perfect for a beginner, intermediate or an expert looking to improve their sales. I would also recommend this book to those who have sold in traditional outlets but have yet to find a way to get more exposure to grow. If you want a clearly written step-by-step guide to get you moving, I highly recommend it.

    Very nicely done!!

    I have worked on crafts for several years. I really enjoy working on crafts with my children, especially during when they are on vacation. Sometimes it can be difficult to track down where to find the supplies for great and fun crafts. I really like this book because it has all of the information I need in one place and it is really concise and easy to read. I highly recommend to anyone!!

    Great Tips and very well written!

    I began doing some crafts back in high school giving them away to friends and family. A buddy of mine recommend this book to me and I must say it has really helped me financially. I have now found several companies who buy my crafts wholesale as well as for their store front retail. This book is well written and took my business to a new level.
