    What is your opinion on paying for jewelry making tutorials?

    What is your opinion on paying for jewelry making tutorials? Would you spend $5-8 on a unique intermediate to advanced design to learn how to make it?

    Not necessary. My thought is that you should never pay for something to be done when you can do it yourself. Just try youtube videos. You can learn anything on there.

    There are still many crafters who do not use Youtube. There's plenty of room for sales of instructional hard copy. Copies made on CD or DVD are viable for some  or even as email content. but everyone misses the market for those that prefer to have a booklet in hand.

    I think the internet is slowing killing those off.  But there are people who just aren't as savvy online or when it comes to research so they would most likely benefit from a hard copy of something they can hold and look at closely, and DVD tutorials.  But don't forget the public library.  It's a personal choice.

    Personally, I would not pay but that's because I am an artist.  Have you thought about doing a youtube video showing how you make it?

    No, I have found just about anything I need online through the magic of Google.  So in this economy I would hesitate to pay for tutorials.

    Thanks all for your answers!  Maybe I will just write a book (or an ebook) instead of trying to sell individual tutorials. I am torn though because I always see crocheters selling patterns and I know that people buy them - and they sell them alongside the actual product they are teaching.

    I am really just trying to diversify to increase my income by doing more of what I love; making jewelry, teaching others, and writing! The problem comes with the overlap - as long as I am still selling the jewelry it's sort of a conflict of interest to teach others how to make the same designs (at least for free). And it doesn't make sense to spend the time designing jewelry I don't plan to sell just for the tutorials.

    Anyway, thanks again for your input. I have some more consternatin' to do smile
