If you have already started a knitting business, you will agree that starting it off is quite easy compared to what needs to be done in order to retain in the business. This is where a knowledge of doing the right things or the wrong things in your knitting business, come into play. I have listed below 3 top tips for helping you to enjoy and get more out of your knitting business.
Tip #1: If you keep on knitting things you don’t like you may lose enthusiasm – for example if you make knitted blankets you may struggle because they take forever to knit – eventually the quality of your knitted products will go down. Therefore, tip number one in a knitting business is to avoid knitting things that you don’t like.
Tip #2: Usually people like extraordinary things. By this I unique or something special. So this is where your creativity comes in to play. If you want your knitting business to become popular or famous, you need to offer knitted products that people will love to talk about or something that they will love to experiment with. So go on and make use of all those unconventional knitting supplies to add glitter and glamour to your knitted products.
Tip #3: Offer extras with your knitted material. Your offer can either be in the form of freebies (things you give away free of charge such as knitting lessons) or in the form of a discount (50% off on the second product etc) or in the form of an offer scheme, such as buy one knitted item, and get one free.
However, the rule of the thumb for success in a knitting business is to provide the highest quality customer service at all times. If you keep your customers happy, they will most certainly come back for more. But if you provide a poor quality customer experience and poor quality product, your knitting business relationship will most likely end up as a one-time only interaction and this will not sustain your knitting business.
