I've been selling my own crafts online (and at shows) for years, but I learned so much from this book that I couldn't wait to get started. I was selling on etsy (of course) and I knew about some of the other sites that I could sell on, but I had no idea that there were so many. This book lists 70+ sites that you can put your stuff on to sell, and even better, how to make it into on giant presence, instead of 70 little ones. The book also shows new ways to promote, advertise, and get more people viewing your stuff -- and what to do with those people who look but don't buy on their first visit. I'm already using many of the tips in the book, and will be rolling out many more over the summer!

I've always been into making my own crafts since I was taught the art by my mother as a child. Until now, all of the crafts I have been making have gone to relatives and friends as gifts or have stayed in my own home. While everyone, even my critic of a son, have praised my handiwork, I have never felt a need to sell my crafts. When I was downsized from my place of work due to the economy, I realized that I have a product that I have been making my entire life that I could sell to supplement my income. What I didn't know however, was how to go about selling my crafts online. A friend who sells her crafts recommended this book and I have been very pleased with the results. This book includes all of the advice you need to sell your crafts on the internet including all of the essentials of legally starting your own business like getting a business license as well as crafting your brand. Furthermore, the book also details marketing strategies, registering an online domain for your business, generating website traffic, using existing sites to sell your work, and even how to use social media websites to advertise and sell your products. There is far more information in this book than I care to summarize in this review but all of it is relevant, informative, and essential to succeeding in selling your crafts online. If you create your own crafts and want to sell them online, I highly suggest you grab a copy of this book. A+

This is a way better version of other books like this I've read. It was straightforward and 100% really good ideas. Totally worth the $4.99 buy, since I've already sold product on one of the sites I found in this book. I was hesitant to take the time to read another book on online craft selling anyway, since I already consider myself pretty successful at it, but I was surprised to find a whole bunch of useful stuff I had no idea about before in here. Big-time recommend for beginners and pros alike!

I highly recomend this book if you have an online business and you need advice on how to get more sales in your shop. I have an etsy and artfire shop where I sell jewerltly. I have my own domain, a facebook fan page and twitter but I am not doing enough. This book provided me more ideas to help me promote my shop and hopefully get mote sales.
