Whether you are a jewelry artisan or you buy handmade animal jewelry from wholesale jewelry suppliers, you have probably had the plan to sell animal jewelry online. Mostly you had no idea what that really needs to be done to market your animal jewelry website on the World Wide Web. You will have to learn internet marketing, social networking, web design, search engine optimization (SEO). You will have to be relentless in your efforts and understand that once you get your animal jewelry website up and running no one will know you exist. It will all be up to you if you want to be successful. It takes patience and constant work every day. The aim is to be on the first page of Google for your keywords.
Most jewelry artisans want to set up an animal jewelry website with little or no marketing budget rather depending on repeat customers, referrals and word of mouth from friends and family of the people who order it. Your friends and family may be supportive but you cannot depend on them. They will not be a major part of your wholesale animal jewelry business income. You need to act as if your friends and family will not order animal earrings or animal bracelets from you and spend your time marketing and finding your true target niche.
Wholesale animal jewelry business will primarily target women and men who buy unique animal related gifts a few times a year. They will have a certain income threshold and age range. They will have to have specific tastes that run towards the handcrafted animal jewelry you offer. The more you know about your best target niche, the better you will be able to devise marketing that attracts their interest and fulfills a desire. You need your handmade animal jewelry marketing to make a promise and your unique handcrafted jewelry to deliver it.
Once you have a home base wholesale animal jewelry business whether it is your own website, blog or somewhere else you have to work on driving traffic to your animal jewelry site. Choosing what is most likely to work for you from Social Media sites, Article Writing and Guest posting, podcasting, video marketing, email marketing/list building, publicity, and press releases. Again all things you will have to learn about in addition to SEO (Search Engine Optimization) and copyright. Oh since you sell wholesale animal jewelry you will also need to pick up photography and lighting knowledge too.
Since you don’t want to spend money marketing you need to put in the time for your wholesale animal jewelry business. First get yourself a place to sell. Etsy is a good place to set up a gift store that carries animal jewelry but every one of this type of site charges fees to set up a store or sell your handcrafted jewelry. This is okay but maybe not what you should start with especially if you have no advertising budget.
Personally, a self-hosted WordPress or Blogger blog is easy to set up but most importantly free. You will have to learn how to make magic yourself and while it is relatively easy to learn it takes time to really get good at it. There are free tutorials and tons of websites to learn the basics.
