In short, yes it is! Now is a really good time to start a business.
Why? Well if you don’t start it now, then when?
There is never a perfect time to set your business up. Something will always be going on whether its a house move, supporting relatives, raising kids, unexpected bills cropping up. Something will always be your reason not to get started if you’re waiting for the perfect time. Life just doesn’t serve up those ideal circumstances.
Waiting for the ideal time just means that you will never start your business
Today it is easier than ever to start a business. Most of the planet is now connected to the internet which makes it easier than ever to connect to your audience, and sell not just locally but internationally. Starting a business is still a challenge, but there are so many tools at your disposal, and so may ways that you can add extra revenue streams to protect yourself from downturns.
You can even get your business started with very little start up costs. As long as you have a smart phone, a hook and yarn you can start to sell your crochet.
So if starting a business from your crochet is something you have been considering, then now is the time to do it. Take advantage of that huge online audience to build your brand and get your products seen more easily than ever before.
I’ve created The Hookers Academy to help you do just that.
The Hookers Academy
If you don’t know where to start or what you need to get selling your crochet, then the Academy is for you.
The Hookers Academy has a Facebook page with daily business tips – join us here
I will take you through what you really need to get on your feet, how to set up your social media pages, how to choose your first products, how to market those products for free and what pitfalls to avoid.
The Academy isn’t a course, it’s a membership where you can join for as long as you need. There is no minimum term.
We have our own Facebook group where you can ask for the help you need. You will get Q&A sessions with me and get the support you need to build your business with confidence.
I’m building the content of The Hookers Academy as we go, so I’m launching it at the beta price of just £15 a month. This will be your lifetime rate even if I increase the price for new members in the future. I will be building an exclusive members area on my website where you can find all the resources and how to videos you need. This will include walk through videos, e-books, checklists and so much more.
So what resources do I have planned for you?
What You Can Expect
I will walk you through the basic needs of your business, what tools will give you the biggest return for your effort. Which selling platforms are available along with pros and cons of each one. How you can create professional looking pictures and how to make marketing graphics that sell. We will start with the importance of choosing your first product carefully, and how to exploit free social media. Do you need a logo? What about a website? How do you write product descriptions that sell?
Above all I will give you the support you need as well as preparing you for the realities of business building.
I’ve had a crochet business for the last 5 years, and I’ve learnt a lot in that time. I’ve learned a lot of things that work, and I’ve learned what doesn’t work too which is just as important, if not more so. Building a business isn’t easy, but it can be very rewarding both personally and professionally if you’re willing to put in the work.
If you bring the willingness to learn and work at it, I will show you how to build the foundations of a stable and successful business.

Who Am I?
I’m Kelly, of The Cool Crochet Society. I’ve been running a crochet business since 2015, starting with selling finished items then adding crochet patterns to my range. I retailed on Etsy and on my Facebook page, receiving over 100 orders on Etsy, and I’ve lost count of how many through Facebook.
In 2019 I started down scaling my Etsy store in favour of pattern designing, and I turned to providing crochet tutorials through my Facebook and YouTube channel. I have successfully monetised my YouTube channel and my blog to provide a recurring income through showing others how to crochet.
Let me show you the business secrets I have learned while helping you steer clear of the pitfalls.
There are many ways to make money from crochet. You may not want to utilise them all, but I strongly encourage diversification to maximise your returns. I will show you how to do all this and what you need to concentrate on first as you take your first steps into the business world.
Here at The Hookers Academy I will show you how you can start to make a living from your crochet.
You don’t need expensive tools to get you started, you can get up and running with inexpensive platforms if you’re willing to put in the work.
Whether you want to sell finished crochet items, kits, patterns, lessons, or make an income through blogging and affiliate marketing I can walk you through the essential steps of building your business from the ground up.
I will take you through step by step of what you need, what is nice to have, and what you should only be getting once you’ve started earning a profit.
The membership to the Academy is monthly with no minimum term. We have a dedicated Facebook group and I will add more information every week. I will be uploading content such as videos, files and application walk throughs.
As the Academy is brand new, I am kicking it off with the introductory offer of just £15 a month. This is your lifetime price even if I raise the price for new members in the future.
If you have any questions about the Academy you can email me at firstname.lastname@example.org or come over to the Facebook page The Hookers Academy
