1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: myspace store feed back please on: November 13, 2009 10:36:40 PM
I think your prices are fair. Your shop is good. But myspace is not considered a selling platform. Have you considered etsy, artfire, 1000 markets, etc. You may have better luck there selling your handmade goods.

A shopping cart website made by a company/individual can cost you some money. But if you are willing to take some time and learn free open source content management systems such as  osCommerce or Zen Cart then you can achieve what you want to do.

For a blog page with a store features I recommend Wordpress because you can add your etsy mini or rss your handmade shop into your blog anyway you want.
3  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Selling Crafts on Etsy.com / Re: Advertising your Etsy shop! on: October 23, 2009 04:01:23 AM
There are several ways you can advertise your Etsy shop.

1. Is through friends, family, and co-workers

2. Online through craft social networks such as Twitter, FaceBook, MixxMade.com, ByHand.me, Indiepublic, etsylove.ning.com, etc.

3. Re-listing your items always helps but it adds up

4. Paid advertising through ProjectWonderful, Adwords, Adbrite, Etc.

5. Classified ads such as Craigslist

6. Build a Facebook fan page for your shop. Chance is most of your friends and family are already on there

7. Also, article writing which is great for viral marketing
4  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Where to build a crafty-business website online & where to get templates? on: October 22, 2009 10:05:29 PM
I recommend Wordpress. You can do so much on there. If you are a new to websites it will be a bit of a learning curve. But with time and patience I think you can achieve this business website. Good luck!
