How do you advertise???

I was wondering, if your starting out selling hand made products online how do you advertise? I've tried groups on cafemom, but I think i need to get noticed more and get my web page out there..any suggestions or advice?? I see other moms selling stuff like mine, and there doing great, that first step seems to be pressing me back...

  • My frend and I have our own website and promote it by adding the link to our email and messages online. You can also run contests to help get traffic.

  • You could always join Etsy.com It is great for homemade businesses. Also, if you really would like to get your website viewed by your local area, you could always advertise on your car. You could custom design your ad using the My Design tool on Http://rose.uppercaseliving.net. If you order before April 6th you will get half off your second product/ design of equal or lesser value when you purchase one at regular price.
