Making Crafts for Money!

So you are a crafty person and want to turn that into a business. Here are some great ways to do just that.

It is a little late for Christmas but you can start focusing on Valentines Day and Easter and sell at local craft bazaars. I just went to a Christmas Bazaar today and got lots of great ideas, talked to a few vendors and had some quality time with the kids :o).

So selling at bazaars, selling in a booth at a crafters mall is good with a monthly rent, Selling online, there are many craft malls on line. My fav crafty web site is but there are others, there might even be one for your local area. You can also start your own website, there are free ones out there, you could do open houses, have your friends do open houses an dgive them "hostess credit".

As you can see there are many ideas on how to sell. As far as what to sell, go to a crafters bazaar in the coming weeks and see what is out there and go from there. I saw some great stuff today and you can too.

Making money helping otheres with their free offer sites.

Project Payday is a new opportunity that I found and there is some great money and free items to be earned here.

Basically you start out by helping others by doing trial offers for them so they can win a free gift card, video game system, tv, etc.... the key here is they pay you thru paypal usually about $25 to $50!! the trick here is that some of these offers cost a few bucks, some are free to try but most come with a trial period and after that ends then you are paying a membership fee or having something shipped to you that you will be charged for. So you have to keep really good track of what you are trying and cancel right before the time is up. If you cancel right away your trial doesn't count and you don't get paid.

Once you get that down then you start joining the sites that offer the free stuff and you pay others to sign up with the trial offers and you get the big stuff, you can then resell on ebay, locally, keep it, gift it or if it is cash you earned it and spend it if it is a gift card same thing.

I am going to go for this one really soon. I encourage you all to check it out! It is free to join!!

Find what you love and money will follow

I think too many people try to find the money and then hope that they love what they are doing. The truth is that it works the other way around. So this is how you find what you love and the money will follow...

What do you enjoy? I mean really really enjoy. Do you love to cook? Pampered Chef is always taking on new distributors. Do you love animals? You could raise and sell them or have a grooming business, riding stable...

You can see where I am going with this. When your find what you love to do the money will follow and there are so many companies out there and small businesses that you could start that your options are endless.

If you are not sure what your love to do so the money will follow then you have to dig a little and remember what it was that you enjoyed as a child or what you used to do before the kids came along. Dive in and start figuring it out.

Now go create a new career and have fun!

Learning to market a web site or blog

I just found this great site that teaches you how to get traffic to your web site or blog. This can be any site that you are promoting as an affiliate or your blog or you business' site, even an Ebay Store. I have just started so I can't tell you too much about it other than it is really great and takes you a step at a time. So go to the link on this blog and dig in to a great new way to get others to see your site.

I will try to update as I go along and give any tips. As of right now my only tip is that keyword search can be done for free in the beginning if you don't want to get into marketing samurai or google adwords. I just googled keyword search and found a few free ones. Also go through the preseason training and get as much as you can from it. I think it is meant to be done over a week or so and I did it in two days. Can we say mentally draining?? Have fun with it and learn. Don't let yourself get frustrated they literally take you thru step by step.

Writing Articles for Money $$$

I found a site where I can write an article and recieve money for it. Actually 2 but som far I have not been published on teh second one although I hear there is more money there. I am still waiting for approval on my article, I was told that it takes a bit longer at that site. is the first one and is the second one. I am including my AC article at the end of this blog so you can check them out.

You sign up for free, create a profile and voala you are a writer. I think it is a great out just like these blogs and they pay you plus you get paid when people start looking at you article.

It seems that the more original your article subject is the better you get paid. I wrote one on the Law of Attraction and they informed me that there were alot of article about it so it didn't rand so high because of the numbers that have been writen. I just submited one about horse behavior that I am hoping will get ranked a little better. So if you have a hobby that you know alot about start writting about it and make a few bucks.

Have Fun and make some money!!!

Making Money with Ebay

This is not a plug for a program! I am just amazed how many people are looking to make a few bucks online and spend money on all sorts of programs and biz start ups when you can simply sell your stuff on Ebay. Don't have a garage sale instead open a store on ebay and start listing items.

The site is super user friendly just take your time and read it all before yo go hog wild listing. You can do this.

When you find something that you want to list first do a little research and find out what other people are paying for similar things. Just because you were told that the signed Nirvana picture is worth hundreds of dollars doesn't mean it is true. Be sure to look at the auctions that have actual bids on them and notice the time left. If that picture is going for 9.99 and there is 1 bid and 2 hours left to go it is probably not going for much more, but.... if there are 15 bidders and it is at $150 with 4 days to go you know it is going to be a good seller.

As far as starting bids, keep them as low as possible. If you are sure, from doing your research, that the picture is going to go for 200 start it at 9.99 and it will go up. Just keep in mind that auctions are a bit of a risk and you have to willing to give up the item for 9.99 if for some odd reason the market goes way down. But if you do your research right you are usually going to do fine. As far as putting a reserve on an item it is a guarantee on your price but you will loose alot of bidders that don't want to play the "how much is the reserve" game.

I bought a sweater and saw that one just like it in a different size was going for 112 with a few minutes left so I listed it at $9.99 and when it ended it only went to 52.00 I was a bit bummed but since I only paid $2 at a thrift store for it, it was a great profit. If I would have started that auction at $75 I would still have the sweater. So just keep in mind to keep the starting bid low, it also helps with your listing fees.

Now go list something and have fun making money at home!!!
