Have you ever used a Bind-It-All? A Cricut? Or A Wishblade? How about a Silhouette Cameo? Well, then, you may be eligible to work as a manufacturer’s demonstrator and show other scrapbookers how to use these products!
There are over 1000 Michaels stores coast-to-coast, and almost as many JoAnn stores. Add in Ben Franklins, Hobby Lobbys, and dozens of smaller stores and chains, and there’s sure to be a store near you that could benefit from your expertise. Manufacturers typically hire their representatives directly, paying by the hour or by the visit for experts to host make-and-takes and demonstrations around the country.
Great for: Take-charge, teaching types who don’t mind going to a different location every time.
Drawbacks: Weekend work, mostly. Also, limited by how far you’re willing to drive.
Earning potential: Around $15/hour, or $50 per demonstration.
Suggestions: Contact manufacturers of your favorite tools directly to see if they have existing programs.
