Best ways to promote your handmade jewelry website


Published on

You can market your handmade jewelry in various ways. You can establish your personal internet handmade jewelry retail store, sell to gift and jewelry shops at wholesale jewelry prices, rent booths at local craft markets and art fairs, or advertise your jewelry making skills and get custom orders for specific items. You can also sell your handcrafted jewelry on consignment at local specialty boutiques.

Because people are so very different, they want handmade jewelry pieces that are different also. One-of-a-kind jewelry pieces that nobody else in the world makes can get you quite a bit of money. You will want to be known for your quality custom jewelry and unique designs. Always choose the highest quality gems and stones for your items, and be sure that the workmanship is brilliant. Become selective, never making any two pieces alike and more people will want to buy your handmade jewelry items. This is the most difficult route because you need to find just the right type of customers.

  • Hi there,
    I started a gemstone jewelry site about 2 month. I promoted my site via social networks facebook, twitter, pinterest, digg, and others. I got some traffic but the real traffic I get from adwords and facebook ads, in the end beside traffic I got a huge bill with few sales. I would appreciate very much any suggestions .
    Thank you.
