What are the Pros and Cons of selling your jewelry online?
The pros are that I can stay at home. I can work all day, I don't have to carry tons of stuff to some show and hope people will show up there and hope that they will be buying. There is so much social media to promote online selling.
The cons are that there is a lot of competition online. It's a lot of work to promote yourself. You have to make the jewelry; take photos of it; get it on your computer and do any necessary photoshopping; then list it, which also means describing it, adding stories, prices, etc. You have to organize it so you remember what you listed and where. It's also hard to motivate yourself when you are home all day. And equally difficult to prioritize what you are doing. Some times I just want to watch movies! Of course, most of this also applies to selling my jewelry any where else too.
