After twenty-five of expertise, I still think that the best way of promoting handmade jewelry and handcrafted unique gifts would be to take part in art and craft shows. Marketing much better if you meet people and talk with them. So that they will know you the artist better and they will have a better feel of your handmade jewelry creations. Touching your jewelry, learning how it's made and placing a friendly face behind it is going to result in the realm of difference in selling. The jewelry may have more value to them within an emotional way.
For handmade jewelry artisans just starting out there isn't any better learning experience than craft fairs. Meeting your visitors face to face, knowing what they are searching for and what they need is the foundation of an effective handmade jewelry business. You will quickly learn what your target audience is and just what niche market you need to focus on.
There are lots of, otherwise thousands, of craft shows through the United States. Starting out local shows are great because they are usually cheaper and more easy to do. You'll discover the best way to display your handmade earrings, handcrafted necklaces and handmade bracelets in addition to meeting other local craftspeople. If they have been doing craft shows for a while they will understand all the shows in the area that are worth doing and steer you away from the fairs which are pointless.
When you are ready you are able to head to juried shows and national shows. These are very competitive so make certain your handmade jewelry is of the most useful possible. Juried shows are more expensive to demonstrate at but these shows attract lots of people who're interested in all kinds of handmade gifts. After performing these crafts shows for a long time you'll start having your personal following of standard customers.
Larger craft shows will also be a great place to meet local shop keepers who want to purchase your handcrafted jewelry and handmade gifts to provide for their customers. You'll have to decide if you want to wholesale jewelry too. This will depend around the kind of handmade jewelry you are making and if you can produce enough handmade earrings and handmade bracelets at a reasonable price for shop keepers to sell well within their shops. Although you don't make as much profit per piece, you sell many more pieces at a time. If you make really unique jewelry which has high quality and good prices, you'll be able to create a lot more money overall if you decide to offer your handmade jewelry towards the wholesale jewelry market.
Lately I've noticed a lot of handmade jewelry artisans on the internet. Even though it is relatively easy and cheap to create your personal handcrafted jewelry website, it requires a lot of time and effort to rank well in the search engines. A lot of jewelry artisans don't make anything and getting frustrated online. Make an effort to craft shows. There is nothing much better than having someone ooh and aah over your handmade jewelry, not just leaving a comment to obtain a back link. At the end of the day you've some money in your pocket along with a great sense of achievement that will energize you to definitely create the most unique handcrafted jewelry ever.
We have done craft shows for several years and that we also wholesale our work. The best selling strategy is you. Your personality is your edge on all the other handmade jewelry available. Online nobody knows the real you but at craft shows your individuality shines. People are drawn to not only the unique handmade jewelry displayed but for your friendly smiling face. The conversation that develops leaves your customer with a great feeling of understanding the artist personally who created their favorite set of handmade earrings and handmade bracelets.
