Get a free flickr account at flickr.com.
– upload the best pictures of your product and also process photos of you making them!
– tag your photos meaningfully – skirt craft pompom POOFskirt costume burningman (for example!)
Start a free blog somewhere.
– blogger.com or wordpress.com (i would say use wordpress as it’s more powerful and flexible) are good free places to do this and you really don’t need any technical knowledge to do it.
– both of those services let your create static pages as well as a blog so that you can use it for promotional info AND blogging if that is something you are interested in. You don’t actually HAVE to blog regularly or anything if you are not into that!
Use a craft selling service online to sell your items.
– There are actually quite a few selling services available. Here is a small list: Etsy.com, Artfire.com, 1000markets.com
– you can use all of them if you want! It’s great publicity
Sell in retail stores and get business cards printed up and hand them out to people and leave them in stores for people to pick up. Some cheap online places to get cards printed are Zazzle.com or moo.com
Optional if you have time:
– participate in some craft communities if you have time. Etsy forums, craftster.org to name a few.
If you want to spend more money and time you totally can but there is no need to reinvent the wheel. You can buy a domain name and get it hosted somewhere for yearly fees but my suggestion is to just wait until your business is more established.
