The arts and crafts industry is not to be underestimated – it’s predicted to be worth around $50 billion by 2024. This is one of those website ideas that I definitely shouldn’t overlook. A recent revival of knitting, crocheting, and homemade goods has pushed crafting into the mainstream. It’s a great way to pass the time without scrolling through my phone. It can also help many people to earn money on the side, with sites like Etsy providing a platform for sellers of unique handcrafted items. But it’s not all about making and selling. I could create a website dedicated to teaching other people how to craft and share tips on my specific niche. With a how-to crafts site, I have got a great opportunity to build a network of crafters. It can be monetized in a number of ways, for example through ads and affiliate links.
