I posted on another group and one of the gals told me to come here because some of you have your own businesses?

im new to all of this! My website has been online for 2 weeks and I just need some advice on how to get my name out there without spending a fortune :) also.. I really like to take a personal approach to business, do you think that would be a bad choice?

My website is http://www.ecobabyoutlet.com/

 

Thank you in advance! :)

 YAY, glad you joined!!  But you will have to remove your link in this forum.  You can only post links in the Marketplace Forum.

You will get lots of GREAT advice here!!!

Do you have a FB And twitter? Perhaps a blog, if you're chatty? Use FB like a FAN page, not to sell stuff - engage with your customers, post teasers about new products, talk about what you're making, post pictures - and if the item is available, add a link in the pic description so they can go look to buy it without having to talk to you. To spread the word, maybe a giveaway? Pass out business cards wherever you go. :)

Also if you have a lot of inventory maybe book a craft show! Lots of chances to get your stuff seen and pass out business cards. Engage with other sellers. Make friends in the artisan Community.
