Selling knit and crochet products online is such an amazing idea. You can make an extra money on the side, you can show your skills and talents to people from all over the world, and you can build your own brand over time.
Regardless of what style of knitting or crocheting you prefer, the tips in this article are going to help you differentiate your style and build a base of loyal customers.
- Recreate an In-Person Shopping Experience – Almost anyone who has sold crochet or knitting knows how potential buyers love to touch and try on the items. You need to capture your products’ in-person interest for online buyers by being detailed in your listings when describing feel and fit. You can include sizing charts, measurements, care instructions, and etc.
- Stand by Your Materials – It is not necessary to change the materials, just because you sell online. Instead, explain the reason why you’ve decided to work with that exact material. This will help you attract more customers and differentiate yourself from the crowd. Make sure to be as uniqueness as possible. Being honest about what materials you use and showing confidence in your decisions will definitely help you attract more target audience.
- Invest in High-Quality Photos – Remember, a good photo can sell almost anything and with crochet and knitting, photography best practices apply. Use natural light and take clear photos. Also, make sure to use a simple background as it gives buyers clarity about the product they purchase. You can use a live model to bring style for wearable items. Consult with a professional photographer, explore your possibilities, and find the approach that suits you and the products you sell.
- Plan a Season Ahead – If you want to be a successful online seller, you need to plan a full season ahead. Don’t wait until the summer to make and list the summer items. Make a plan and determine the appropriate time to list your products for the season. If you ship internationally, the seasons vary from different parts of the globe.
We hope these tips are going to help you sell your products! Good luck!
