There are many ways and many sites you can use to sell your home made products online. Sites such as Etsy and Zibbet have made it really easy for people to submit their hand made goods and set up their own online shop. This is often easier for people because they don’t have to have the added expense of creating a website or domain name and it also gives them a feel for how popular their products are and test the market. Amazon have recently also set up their own competitive online marketplace where people can sell their home made products.
There are many products you can sell online and far too many to list but popular items are Jewellery, cakes and confectionery, clothes and home made household items and furniture. Another really popular product that has increased in its popularity is home made pottery, more of us are purchasing pottery wheels and creating and designing our own home ware. This proves really popular because the market for unusual and creative items has risen dramatically. A good pottery wheel can be purchased for a reasonable price, some brands and types are recommended and there are plenty of online review sites that will help you make your choice. Pottery classes have also become incredibly popular as people realize the value in pottery as a hobby but also as a small home business venture.
There are lots of online sites that you can use to sell your products and it is advisable to have a look at them all and see what their terms are, many of the sites will allow you to create your own shop whilst others will consider your product for selling, if they agree they would like to stock your product, there is often a fee from each sale.
Many Mom’s and home based businesses are doing incredibly well from these online sites and with the market changing and more people looking for authentic and home made produce, the market is set to continue to rise. Always ensure you use good quality photographs which will show the quality of your products. If you have been making home made goods for some time but haven’t attempted to sell them online, it may be a good idea to start, you may make some good returns but you will also get a feel for the market and know which products customers want.
