Marketing is essential for promoting a crochet business and reaching potential customers. If you hide away and don’t let people know about you or your wonderful product, how will they find you?

The general public tend to believe that if you are selling online you are visible to the whole world. Not so. There are many millions of websites on the internet – what is going to bring people to you?

Call it what you like – selling, marketing, promoting – it is something you cannot ignore if you wish to find customers.

Here are a few strategies that can help:

Social media

Establishing a presence on social media platforms such as Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest can be a great way to showcase your products, connect with potential customers, and build a following. Consistently share high-quality images, product information, and behind-the-scenes content to keep your followers engaged and interested in your products.

Notice that I said “consistently” – this is important. How many times do you see or read something about a product before you are tempted to try it?

How often does an advert or information pop up that you just ignore. The fact is that you will not notice until you are thinking about a particular item


Blogging is a great way to build an audience and connect with potential customers. Share your crochet patterns, tutorials, tips, and insights on the crochet industry to establish yourself as a thought leader and expert in the field.

Write content that keeps followers coming back to see the latest post.

You will, of course, have your blog details on the social medium that you have chosen so that you remind everyone who you are.


Attend local craft fairs, trade shows and events to connect with other crochet business owners and customers. It can be a great way to build relationships and gain exposure for your business.

You will find that most of your competition are friendly and you will pick up a lot of good advice and ideas from them.

SEO optimization

Optimizing your website for search engines can help to increase visibility and attract potential customers.

Use keywords and meta-tags to improve your website’s search engine ranking and make it easier for people to find your products online.

If the search engines decide that your content is what people are looking for, they will serve it up.

Email Marketing

Build an email list of customers who have purchased from you or shown interest in your products and you can use it for email marketing campaigns, for example, by sending them news about your new products, upcoming sales and promotions, etc.

Your email list is your business’s greatest asset because your emails go straight into the inboxes of your followers becoming harder to resist than anything that just pops up while scrolling through.


Advertising your business online and offline with options like Google Ads, Facebook Ads, Instagram Ads or flyers, brochures, etc. It can be an effective way to reach a large audience and drive sales.

Obviously these ads will have to be paid for. However if you do have the money to try it it is possible to get customers at a fast rate. Whereas the free way will take more time. The choice is yours but check out how much it is going to cost before rushing in.

Ultimately, the key to effective marketing is identifying your target audience and creating a message that speaks to their needs and interests. By consistently promoting your products and building a strong brand identity, you can help to attract new customers and grow your crochet business.
