[#31cbcbcJanuary 2013] Crocheters: How Many Times Have You Under Priced Your Work?

A Review of “Pricing Crochet Fairly for Maximum Profit” selling crochet

How many times have you under priced your work just to get a sale? How’s that working for your bottom line? I thought so.

Are you ready to start making a profit? Are you sure?

Pricing Crochet Fairly For Maximum Profit” is the latest eBook by Sedruola Maruska, mom, wife, crocheter, designers, and professional marketer.

When Sedie started selling her work she, like many, sold herself short by under pricing her work. She would never make money for her family if she continued doing so.

Listen Carefully

You need to make a decision right now. Is crochet a business or a hobby for you?

If it’s just a hobby this doesn’t apply to you BUT if it’s a business keep reading.

In “Pricing Crochet Fairly For Maximum Profit” Sedie introduces you to the basics of marketing – that is – branding, target audience, selling and budgets.

She gets to the heart of pricing your work by introducing you to some common pricing formulas.

Math? Ugh

Don’t let the math scare you off.  Sedie has a way of explaining things that makes you say “Duh, why have I never done that?”

The answer is simply because you haven’t switched your mindset from hobby to business. Make the switch now – your pocket book will thank you.

Sedie includes information on how to set your wholesale price, your retail price and even shows you how to charge your family and friends without guilt or profit loss.

Who Is This Book For?

This book is for makers, designers, wholesalers, teachers, writers, and even public speakers.

What does public speaking have to do with crochet?

Running a crochet business can take on many forms it just depends on what you want to do.

If you have a great speaking voice, use it. Teach others the art of selling like Tara Gentile. (taragentile.com), hold workshops, classes, be a keynote speaker on a craft cruise, hold a local seminar or even an online webinar, it doesn’t matter what you do, just be sure you charge a fair price for maximum profit.
