I have shared with you, over the last several weeks, some quite easy applications to help you with your online marketing of your gift or craft business.
Now, if you would like to pursue online marketing in more detail, let me refer you to the following expert resources:
Got a craft business idea you think could earn you extra income? Read how other craft artists have profited from James Dillehay’s craft business guides…..
“We couldn’t have imagined how much of an impact James Dillehay’s advice would make on our business. We thought after perfecting our product everything would just fall into place, but it didn’t until we started working with his suggestions. To our delight we are seeing results on a faster and larger scale than we expected in such a short period of time.” ~ Ken Kobrick & Angela Greene, www.Passchal.com, featured on the Today Show
Since reading your books, I have implemented many of the ideas. I am now happy to report that I have had some surprising success here in Santa Fe. My hang cards, booth design, and even my products themselves have been changed by your books. I have only been there 5 partial days and have sold about 4 times what I sold in the equivalent time last year. I changed the color of the walls, the height of the tables, the displays, the hang cards, the pricing and more. So, IT WORKS!” ~ Julie Anderson, CostumeSalon.com
“After reading his books, my business took on a new life. I changed my product slightly and the response was remarkable! My first order was triple what I had planned for, and other orders are pouring in! I continue to look to James for inspiration and I love his approach. Because of the techniques I learned from him, my business is thriving.” ~ Cathy Marble, Chamisa Hill Designs

Bob is a crafter himself, but advertising and marketing was his “day job” for 20+ years. This is an area where crafts people have little experience – quite understandably – and while the internet offers great opportunities there’s a lack of clear, concise, easily understandable information to help people.
Selling Crafts Online is for people who want help with online advertising and marketing. Bob covers as much ground as possible from his own experience and loves when people comment on the blog and ask questions. He has plenty of free info on the blog and is always adding to it. For people who want one-to-one help there’s his craft mentoring program which gets him actually working in your business. This program is especially tailored for crafters who really want to take their craft income to the next level.
He also has a series of short courses that will be delivered by email once a week. Subjects covered will be things like Basic Craft Marketing, Multiplying Your Income Streams, Professional Blogging Tactics and more. If you would like to know more details, sign up to his free newsletter – which will also get you a copy of “Craft Success Online” – an ebook that helps with a lot of the basic questions that people have when they’re just getting started.
