If you love arts and crafts, you will already have a good idea of what you are good at and what you enjoy, turning this into a business idea isn’t as hard as you think. The first and most important thing is to get your ideas down on paper and have an action plan. If you want your business idea to be successful, you have to plan what you want to achieve and in what time scale you want to achieve this by.
Always have a firm plan of where you are going to work, if you plan on having a home business, make sure your space is yours and is separate from the rest of the home with a fully functioning door and key if needed. Its really important to schedule work time, if you don’t have a space just for work, you may become frustrated with the lack of progress. Others can and often do take things that look interesting especially Children, keep your things separate unless you are happy for them to use them.
Have a range of products you are going to produce and don’t try and do too many at one time, more can be added later. Have your prices very worked out and do some research on companies and other arts and crafts suppliers and find out their prices, where they sell and to whom. This will help you to plan by pointing your products in the right direction.
Having your own website using ecommerce websites are all good business ideas but don’t be afraid to get out there and offer your products to quirky little shops that may be interested in stocking your products, if you don’t ask, you don’t get. Take a look at what independent shops are in your area and choose the ones that stock similar home made items and ask if they would stock yours to see how it goes.
Choosing a name for your business idea is paramount and should be high on your list of priorities, many believe and think wrongly that a work from home business isn’t as prominent as other businesses but you would be wrong. There are many websites out there that can help with your business name but the most important rule is to explain your product and have a name that’s easy to spell and easy to read. Always think what image your mind conjure up when you think of other business names because we all think of an image when we read a business name, what do you want people to visualize when they read yours.
It’s a good idea to keep your business name short rather than long and always consider your brand identity when you think of a business name by including as much information as you can, including what your company does, what your products are about and what they represent.
Lastly, have the confidence to have a go at your business idea and don’t let your confidence levels pull you back or put your plans on hold. If you have enough passion, dedication and passion, believe you can do it.
