Know Your Target Audience
If you are opening a craft club then you must first decide your audience. In the sense, you have to make sure that this club is for whom. Whether it is only for students, adults, old people or everyone. This gives you a clear idea on how to strategize your business and attract customers.

Contests, Prizes And Certifications
You should conduct several contests to keep your participants engaged and thrilled. When they will compete against each other or with some other groups in the town, it will increase their enthusiasm towards craft making. You must arrange some prizes and certifications for the participants to encourage their competitive spirit.
Schedules And Items
There should be proper schedules for meetups which have to be followed sincerely. Also, you should be clear on items required in craft making. Whether they would be provided by your club or participants have to get it from their homes.
The charges for various activities in the club have to be pre-decided to avoid any troubles later. A proper chart with charges for all the courses with terms and conditions (if you have any) should be mentioned before.
Every business today needs to have a digital presence. It is important that you invest in building a website and promote your craft club on social media. It is the best place to find new customers. You should regularly update your social media handles about all the craft making activities, the fun during the sessions and the feedback of the participants. All these things will increase awareness about your craft club and help you get more and more customers.
