Working with wood requires precision and patience. It also requires marketing and branding so you can sell your projects online.
You can pay marketing agencies to promote your business and help sell your woodworking good and services BUT there is lots you can do yourself.
You don't need to be a graphic designer or SEO expert to market your products though; there are plenty of tools that will help you out.
Create a catchy and high-resolution posters, content, ads and more, for your woodwork on Canva
Canva is a free online design tool that allows you to create high quality graphics for various purposes, including posters, social media posts and more.
While you can use Canva for any type of design work (including business cards, flyers, logos and more), it's particularly good at creating ads and social media posts, because it has so many stock images to choose from and several different fonts available.
To start designing your graphics in Canva:
Open the Canva app on your computer or mobile device. If this is your first time using the app and you haven't yet signed up for an account, follow the prompts to create your account.
Add an image from one of two places: either drag-and-drop the image into your workspace or upload it from a source such as Google Drive or Dropbox by clicking Upload Image at top right in Canva's menu bar.
There are loads of templates and ideas to simply edit as you like. Then click to download.
We’ve used loads of design tools but Canva is by far the best if you have limited experience and are not a professional designer.
It’s great fun too – so give it a try and have a play, you can’t break it.
AI – Writing Tools
Use Writesonic to create a catchy description for your woodwork

Jasper AI – is another, artificial intelligence writing tool.
Use Jasper Ai to write a blog post about interesting wood related content
Jasper Ai is a great tool for writing blog posts, but there are some important things to remember when using it.
The first thing you should do is create a catchy title that has keywords in it. If you're not sure what keywords to use, just search Google for something like "top ten tips for _________" and you'll find plenty of ideas!
Next, select an image that goes along with your post; this will help people find your content more easily on Google Images and other platforms like Pinterest.
Finally, write a description so people can get an idea of what the post is about before clicking through. Include links back to all of your social media accounts (especially Twitter) and add links back to your shop page where appropriate so people can buy whatever tools or materials they need based on what they learned from reading your blog post!
SEO optimize your website with Jasper Ai

Etsy is an online marketplace for handmade and custom craftspeople.
It is quick and easy to sign up and start selling.
In the description section of your listing, you'll have 700 characters to work with. That's enough room to write out a short story if you want.
You can also use keywords and phrases like "woodworking" and "handmade," so that people searching for those terms find your listing when they look on Etsy.
The best part about this feature is that there's no limit on how many times you can use these keywords or phrases; if there are multiple pieces in your shop that incorporate both words, then go ahead and list them all! If any potential customers search within those parameters, their eyes will be drawn directly towards yours first because it'll stand out among the rest of its competition as being most relevant to their interests (and therefore most likely aligned with what they were looking for).
Use the Etsy app to manage your shop remotely
While the Etsy app is not a substitute for working the website itself, it’s a great way to manage your shop remotely. The app allows you to manage your products, orders and inventory in real time. In addition to these functions, it also allows you to view customer activity on their Etsy shops.
Etsy has its own app for managing your shop remotely and tracking sales data—and it's free.
The app is available for iOS and Android and is free to use if you have an existing Etsy account. You can sign into the app by entering your username and password or through Facebook login if you have linked that account with yours at some point in the past.
There are many ways to market your woodwork. Using the right tools can save you time and money, but it can also help you reach a wider audience. If you’re looking for more information about how these tools work together get in touch or sign up for more blog post.
