WAHM Your Way to Success – Start a Craft Info Website

I know a lot of you would be work at home moms out there are intrigued by the idea of an online craft business. But, if you are like me, you’re more of a dabbler in the world of crafts, flitting from one project to another.

I think there are a lot of people like us that like to try new things rather than make the same thing over and over again. If you think only crafters dedicated to making one type of craft are the only ones that can have a successful online craft business, you might want to think again.

There is an alternative for crafter like us. You don’t have to sell your crafts at all. Crafters like us can rely on info-publishing to create an online craft business. Instead of selling crafts, info-publishing craft sites provide craft knowledge.

Info-publishing crafts sites don’t rely on selling crafts, instead they generate income by placing pay per click ads (like all those Google Ads you see everywhere) and affiliate programs.

Your job as an info-publisher is to compile as much craft information as possible, either through research or personal knowledge and develop it into useful articles and tutorials that crafters are searching for.

What makes info-publishing work? It provides a product that viewers are looking for when they search the Internet and that is information. Have you ever gone online and searched for a tutorial on how to create some craft you’ve seen somewhere? Well crafters are doing this every day.

This is where info-publishing is so powerful. A crafter finds your site which you have filled with useful craft information. At this point the crafter is happy to find such wonderful information and is now looking for more.

Sprinkled throughout your website are links to other helpful sites. Some of these may be Google ads, which pay per click, others might be to sites that sell craft products that you are an affiliate for. In this case you receive a commission if a product is sold as a result of the crafter following the link from your site.

The real beauty of info-publishing is that search engines love websites with a lot of good information. In fact, it’s what they look for. If you are willing dedicate time to building good quality craft information for your website, you have the potential to develop a successful online business.

What are you waiting for? Put your craft knowledge to work and maybe you can become a successful WAHM yourself.
