Looking for more ways to Save on Christmas? Here is our 9th tip!
Etsy is an online marketplace that lets all types of people showcase their skills. If you have a marketable skill, why not turn it into an Etsy store that can earn you some extra cash? To start, go take a look around Etsy. This will give you a good idea what sells and what different skills people use on that site. Next, it’s time to brainstorm what you can do.
Are you good with graphics? Consider doing some graphic design on wall art, wall decals, or blog layouts. You can also create printable templates that people can use for making lists, journaling, or tracking things. If you are good at sewing, make cute little washcloths, aprons, and other items that you can sell. Whatever your skill is, market it and sell it.
Once you decide on a skill to use, you might want to look at some of the best-selling products in your area. You can see how they price their products, how they describe them, and how they market themselves. This will give you a good starting point for starting your shop.
Be sure to deliver on time and always deliver quality products—this will ensure that you get good feedback and repeat customers! Even if you only make a few sales a month, that’s money that can go right to your Christmas fund.
