I was wondering what your recommendations would be as to how I should
go about advertising a number of items I made that I'm selling. So far
I've placed them on Ebay (see for example
) but I was hoping someone could give me some further ideas. How does
one make yourself noticeable on the web (other than spamming)?
Thanks very much in advance.
You can post links to your auctions on boards that allow advertising and deal
with whatever you're selling. Be nice about it and mention they're auctions in
Also, if you post on multiple boards, make separate posts. You don't want it to
look like you're blasting everything everything.
Hmm, just looked the auction. Crafty stuffs. There are various boards, groups,
and catalogs/newsletters that deal with selling that type of stuff. Shows, too.
I've found eBay is not the best place to market things like that. I don't
picture folks searching through the listings looking for whirly frogs.
Before you start advertising too much, suggest raising your prices. You are
selling too cheap and it's easier to increase now than after you've built a
customer base. At least double, probably more.
Just my $0.02
