Publishing your Designs

If you design your own products and want to get your designs published Jason Jones Dolphins Jersey , magazines are a great way to go.

You would need to take care of your copyright before you publish in case the design is stolen but it's quite easy and cheap to do so. You would need to check with the authorities of your country for details.




Another way of getting your designs published, if you want to avoid those pesky editors, is to publish them yourself. This takes a bit more work and requires a bit of investment on your part but may end up being more fulfilling and even profitable.



Probably the best way to sell your self-published designs would be through the internet.

Internet

The idea of selling on the internet is enticing. If I were to list the steps, it sounds so deceptively simple but from experience, I know it's not easy. Many many people fail at it. It's a whole new ball game and if we want to play the game well, we should invest time getting an education first.


If you want to set up a blog or a shopping cart on your own website Anthony Steen Dolphins Jersey , it isn't very much more difficult either.

1) Register a domain name at GoDaddy or some other reputable company. You should not need to pay more than $9 for , .net, .org, .biz etc.

2) Get a web host - If and when you plan to get your own website, one aspect you must be very careful about is web hosting. There are tons of cheap web hosts around but please resist the temptation. It is really not worth the savings of that few dollars when they blackmail you with your domain name or they ignore you when your site is down.

Once you have found a few web hosts that you think might meet your needs, do a search for reviews of those hosts first. If there are no reviews or very few reviews Leonte Carroo Dolphins Jersey , I would advise that you avoid them.

If you are new, I would suggest you look for a web host that offers cPanel with Fantastico because it will be easier for you to handle. Fantastico allows you to set up a shopping cart or a blog with just a few clicks so you can get started with your online shop easily.

3) Set up your blog or your shopping cart. If you really don't want to get your hands dirty here, contact your host. Most of them will be able to help you get started.

If you intend to sell using your website, it will be much better for you to get a hosted shopping cart. (Just search for "hosted shopping cart" to get some suggestions) They will be able to set up everything for you so all you need is to put in your own writeups and photos, configure your settings and you're ready to go.

CatalogsMail-order

Catalogs and mail-orders have been used for decades and even centuries and is one of the best channels for a home-based business due to its relative low-cost and its simplicity. Catalogs are attractive because they're usually very colorful and attractive and many people don't mind picking up one to flip through at leisure after dinner or in bed.


You may also want to consider home parties, which have been used effectively by companies such as Tupperware and Mary Kay to sell their products.

Home parties should be fun to attract more people. A fun environment also makes people more willing to buy your products. As mentioned earlier Michael Thomas Dolphins Jersey , use your catalog effectively and organize games with the catalogs. This will "force" your party-goers to read your catalog closely and in the process, they may find something that they want to buy.

Tradeshowsexhibitions

Exhibitions can be very tiring but can be very rewarding as well, both financially. Especially if you've been selling your crafts behind-the-scenes, through catalogs or the internet. Being able to see the joy and delight in your customers as they look and hold and play with your crafts is rewarding in itself. If they purchase, it's even better!

Don't let yourself be restricted to just selling by sitting down. Run some events at your booth to attract more people. Even a simple game or performance can draw many interested visitors.
