1. Social Networking

Social networking helps you connect with people from all around the world. And not just people, brans too. You can be sitting in the USA and order something directly from the Middle East or another country that wouldn’t traditionally be available to you for shopping. As a business, this is of great advantage since you can now also post advertisements and hold campaigns on social platforms. Businesses get a chance to widen their target audience, and make their brand visible to people that could never have known them otherwise.

And some of these websites have been quite successful. You could either go the Facbook, Twitter or Instagram route, or you can opt for Artfire, Etsy, eBay, Amazon and other such platforms that allow you to buy and sell products with full control to the entire world. On social platforms, you can create a page for your website and market your products on there and then you could always add a link to your online marketplace, Etsy, eBay or wherever you have an account through where your customers can buy your products!

2. Creating Your Own Website

Come on, this shouldn’t come to a surprise to anyone. Although yes, in 2016 Forbes mentioned that customers buy more in store than online, I think it’s safe to say that trends are changing and fast.

And even if they aren’t, about 82% of customers do research online before they go on to buying products, especially bigger purchases.  And having a website for your business or homemade jewelry of course helps add to its credibility and allows people a place completely customized to your brand where they can view whatever jewelry it is that you’re selling. Also, don’t forget, you can put a lot of information on your website that could attract more customers and let people know a little about yourself because that always helps with building a relationship with your customers and ensuring that they are turned into long-term clients.

If optimized correctly, a website also gives you a higher chance of appearing in the top search results whenever someone searches for homemade jewelry or whatever product it is that you’re selling. With a website, you don’t have to worry about membership fees or giving anyone a percentage of your sales profit. Once you’ve build yourself a solid base, building a website is the next thing to do! Or if you happen to be a good marketing, skip right to it.

3. Attractive Products, Displays and Pictures

The photograph is worth a 1000 words indeed. When you look at online shopping, you have to keep in mind that your customers are only going to go off of the picture you give them and not by how the product looks in real life, how it feels and how good of a quality it really is. And sadly, this means that even if your products are the best in the world, if they don’t look high quality in the pictures, they probably aren’t going to attract many customers which isn’t good for you or your business.

An important part of making your jewelry look good is to make sure that it is displayed properly. You need a proper background and setup to place your jewelry on before you begin putting it up on your website or even just photographing it. Aesthetic value is very important nowadays so don’t expect tons of customers if your product doesn’t even look good to you in pictures.

And next you have how you take the pictures. Lighting is important too and calling in a professional is the best you could do to again make everything look a lot more professional, and less like a scam or someone who doesn’t take their business seriously. You need to spend a bit of time, money and sweat into it at first but eventually, it’ll pay off in a way that you couldn’t even have imagined and you pretty much give success a definite path to come to you!

The digital world has grown tremendously and will keep growing even further in the coming years. Its best you jump on the bandwagon now and catch up to all the trends before it’s too late.
