Open yourself a PayPal account. PayPal is the simplest way to do business online. PayPal enables you to accept online payments for your craft items. Sellers must offer safe electronic payments to buyers on eBay, so go ahead and sign up for PayPal…it is free.
When uploading pictures of your jerky to website which will sell your product for you, try writing a strong title which is critical for helping users find your items. Use descriptive words, key words, or attributes in the title. This is your first contact with users and you need that title to draw them into looking closer at your item.
You may want to design your own website. This website can contain pictures of the process of making beef jerky and the final product. Be sure to have a shopping cart on your website, so people can pay you directly.
You may want to sell your beef jerky locally. Try selling the jerky at craft fairs, farmers markets, and local grocery stores.
The photos you take of your item are essential in grabbing user’s attention. Add one of the best photos of the product to the headline. Take multiple close-up pictures of the item. Some people may not want to do this because the picture might reveal a flaw. However, this is good. Taking real close pictures of any flaws and posting them in the listing will draw consumer trust.
Decide where you want to sell your merchandise. There are many places online to do this, such as eBay.com, Craiglist.com, Etsy.com, Craftmall.com.
You will need to promote your craft. You can set up a blog and write a journal about the process of your craft or write about places you find material inexpensively. You can purchase advertisements in trade magazines or consider purchasing advertisements on other websites.
