Millions of people stuck at home are hungry to learn, observe and talk about the cool crafts, hobbies and art you create and practice every day!
Abacus offers flexible ways to earn money and connect with learners, fans and customers!

Become a Maker with Abacus

Makers are independent inventors, hackers, crafters, artists and tinkerers who create, teach, or have creative means they wish to offer the world. Our makers run the gamut when it comes to hands-on experience; from novice to pro. Most of us don’t learn our cool hobbies from professionals though. We learn from friends, family, neighbors and trial and error. 

 As an Abacus Maker you can help someone new (or entire groups of enthusiasts) fast forward through the learning curve and benefit from your experience. Through Abacus you can host live tutorial sessions, sell kits with cooperative sessions and even host live walkthroughs of videos you’ve created and answer questions as you go. A single session can earn hundreds of dollars!

Kits and Live Sessions

Do you sell kits on Etsy? On Abacus you can sell your kits and include the cost of live assembly/decorating sessions...monthly, weekly or daily if you choose!

Live Tutorials/Creative Sessions

With Abacus you can post listings for your skills (crafts, design, food...anything) and meet in your own virtual makerspace! Interact with curious learners and be the distraction that so many people need right now.

Live Video Walkthroughs

With Abacus you can post listings for videos you’ve made (that perhaps never got monetized?) and host live walkthroughs. This allows you to answer questions and get to know your fans & subscribers. BONUS: You can record the session and put it back up on YouTube as a live session and add to your library, increasing your exposure.
