Start Your Online Craft Business

by Lisa McGrimmon

This week on the Craft Business Challenge:
How to sell your crafts online, develop better business collaborations, and assess your reasons for building your business so you can make better business decisions.

Starting a Home Craft Business

For those who want to launch an online business, there are loads of website building tools out there. They'll help you build a website, but they won't help you build a business. Some waste a lot of your money, and even the free ones can waste a lot of your time. As a solopreneur,  I've come to see view my time as being more valuable than money.

I do have a fantastic web business building resource that does more than help you build a site. It helps you build an actual business online without wasting your precious time or money. I'll share that resource this week.

Also, collaborations with popular bloggers in your niche can be fabulous opportunities to help you build your online business, but how do you know if a potential business partner is a good fit? This week, we'll look at how to assess a potential business collaboration to make sure it's worth the time you'll invest in the project.

Plus, discover how to examine your business and personal ambitions to make better decisions that will lead to building the business you want.

Smart Business Collaborations

Once you build a bit of a presence online, you'll start getting proposals from other online business owners to collaborate on projects. Great, right? Not always. Before you jump in to participate in a joint project, you need to make a clear assessment to determine if you'll benefit enough to make it worth your time. Here's how to assess business collaborations, so you can choose ones that really benefit your business, and ignore the rest.
