How To Start A Crochet Business From Home
Sell crochet items online
Sell your items on Etsy, Amazon Handmade, Facebook or your own website. If you want to make a full-time income from crocheting, you’ll need to find different items to sell for each season since crochet hats probably won’t sell when it’s hot outside. Look on Pinterest and Google for inspiration. Try searching “summer crochet projects” or “spring crochet projects”.
Starting a crochet business selling your crochet items is an awesome way to make extra cash or replace your full-time job.
I have a FREE ETSY SHOP SETUP CHECKLIST to help you get your Etsy shop set up the right way.
What are the best crochet items to sell?
If you can find products to make throughout the whole year, you’ll be able to make money all year selling your crochet items. If you need help finding trendy best selling products for your crochet business, I’ve made a full tutorial to show you exactly how I find in demand items to add to my shop that sell really fast. I also wrote this post with a bunch of ideas for crochet crafts to make and sell.
Sell your crochet patterns
If you love to create your own designs and patterns for your crochet projects, this is a great way to make money year round because people are always crocheting.
It’s also an awesome way to make passive income because you just make the pattern once, upload it to Etsy, Shopify or wherever you’re selling and when the customer buys, it’s automatically sent to them. Unfortunately, you can’t sell digital downloads on Amazon, but there are plenty of other places you can.
Create an online course to teach crochet
If you love to show people how to crochet, making a course to show others how would be perfect. This is another great way to make passive income because you make the course once and buyers can purchase it and receive access to it any time.
You could teach beginners to crochet, teach advanced crochet techniques or teach how to make specific crochet crafts.
There are platforms like Teachable, Thinkific, Udemy, etc. that you can put your crochet course on so you don’t even have to have your own website.
Create an online crochet membership program
Create an online crochet club for members only and offer new projects every month with patterns and instructions. With monthly crochet memberships, you’ll have automatic recurring payments every month and a steady income so you don’t have to rely on new sales coming in all the time.
A crochet membership program is a fun idea if you love to interact with people and want to create a community of like-minded people to hang out with online.
Start a YouTube channel or blog for crochet
Starting a YouTube channel or a blog is a great way to connect with people and have them get to know you. Once people know, like and trust you, they’re more likely to buy from you.
This is a great way to tie all of the above things together and sell all of those things if you want. You can have people contact you directly to buy from you or direct them to your website, Etsy shop, etc. You can make it a teaching channel or blog and sell patterns or show behind the scenes of your business or how to use your crochet products to sell your crochet items.
How do crochet blogs and crochet YouTube channels make money?
With a crochet blog or YouTube channel, you can sell your own things listed above, but in addition to that you can make place ads on your blog and YouTube channel to earn money through ad revenue.
You can also promote other people’s products. This is called affiliate marketing. You just simply get a link from the product company and place it on your blog post or video description. When people click the link and buy, you earn a commission.
Once you have enough traffic and subscribers, you can also get sponsored posts where a company pays you a flat fee for making a post or video about their product.
Can you make money from crocheting?
You definitely can! I think I’ve shown you here quite a few ways you can earn an income crocheting. The main key is that you have to be passionate about it and really enjoy crocheting if you want to make money doing it. When people see how much you love crochet, they’ll want to buy from you.
Choose the ways to make money with crochet that feel the best to you and that would be fun. If you’re starting your own crochet business, you want to make sure you design it in a way that you’ll enjoy for years to come.
If you love connecting with people, a blog, YouTube channel, course or membership program would be a great fit for your crochet business. If you’d rather hide behind the scenes more, selling your crochet items or patterns online might be a better fit.
The idea is to create your own perfect stay at home crochet job so you can start your crochet business and keep running with it for a long time without burning out. And so you can enjoy every single day of making money with crochet in a way that makes sense for you.
