Hi Kalyani


You can sell your products online through sites such as Ebay , Amazon , Indiatimes shopping , etc


You can also register yourself with various b2b sites such as Tradeindia.com,Alibaba.com,tradekey.com


You can also exhibit your design, embroidery through exhibitions which can make you much more famous.


Hope this is useful to you in many ways.

I see that nowadays Facebook provides an excellent platform for promoting products and the range is mind boggling. Several friends of mine have been able to sell artifacts, plants even used sarees and dresses ..

Kalyani,


It is really good to see that you have retained the art of embroidery. You can first make a few sets of embroidery clothes/napkins,frame them if you want and keep a listing of them on EBay.


Before you keep on EBay,make sure that you have a listing of the product specified.Mainly try seiing it during the festival times showcasing your art to be sold in the form of gifts.Do take a picture of your art and post it before you announce to sell it.

Kalyani, 


Good to know about your skill. 


The best online selling sites as per my experience are: 
1. ebay.com
2. craigslist.co.in


These are genuine sites and requires prioir free registration with the site. 


Here are some tips to sell your products. 
1. After completing you product, make sure you post it in atleast  two sites.
2. Take the image of the product atleast in two angles.
3. Make sure you supply with detailed description about the product.  
4. Donot forget to give your complete address and contact details.  
5. Mention in detail about the product price and about any additional costs regarding shipping and delivery.  


All The Best!!!!!

kalyani,


 


Great work and it is most required art ..earnings are also good as lot of hardwork needed..


There are many ways to promote your product...Other than Ebay, rediff, Amazon and popular b2b sites...you can create your own blog to promote it .


Create a account in Ebay or other sites which have facility to sell items..


I hope you can create  a blog with the pictures of your work and some good content to describe it so that buying or people interested in embroidery work can get an idea on your work.


Put this link in ebay while advertising your product...


I am suggesting online selling sites for easy payment but if you have any other way for payment like cheque or DD you can directly advertise your blog link in social networking sites and facebook too.


Facebook have advertising space where you can put free ads of your product which can be viewable to audience around the world..


Hope this helps you


Regards

Hi Kalyani,


I would recommend using a platform that is geared specifically for handmade crafters.  There are several available on the market, such as http://www.meylah.com! I am one of the founding members of Meylah, we help artists and crafters build their business online using a blog powered storefront and you can even try it for FREE. I also make wire jewelry and sell it through a Meylah storefront.  Here is a link to my storefront so you can see an example of Meylah in action. :) http://www.meylah.com/courtneyrian


Right now Meylah is only available in the United States, but we will be expanding into international markets very soon! 


Feel free to contact us at This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it. if you have any questions or if you need any advice.  We also have a blog that provides a lot of helpful information for newbies. 


Best of luck to you in your embroidery business.  I would love to see a picture of your work!


Sincerely,
