1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Get Product and Website Opinions / Re: Not your usual design on: May 17, 2012 02:55:21 PM
Thank you for that honest opinion. Our plan was to showcase the sellers, but I agree about the good pictures getting front page space.

The way Zahoomi works right now is it shows the sellers closest to you first and then the ones farther away. It was our way of trying to connect the local buyer to the local seller. But I see how this may not be the best way to sell the website, even though the intent is good.

Once again appreciate your input

I chose the design for my website as I did not want the usual run-of-the-mill look.
However folks at home are not the happiest about it. Need some honest feedback about design and ease of use.

Need some honest feedback about design and ease of use of the site. Does it look awful? Is it very difficult to navigate?
Even if you hate it, please let me know.

Thanks,
Priya

I have a site which is an online marketplace where you can buy and sell handcrafted items.

Besides the usual facebook/pinterest/tumblr/twitter networking any advice on places to advertise? Any particular website or sites? Any popular crafty blogs?

I've found that if I just do giveaways, its usually all the folks looking for the free giveaways who enter and I am not really reaching the people I want to. Any help is appreciated!

Thx
Priya

Thanks for the feedback so far. Duly noted that front page needs to be the actual store front and not the search page. I will change it right away. Any other advice about the website layout, etc?

Hi all:

I have a new website, www.zahoomi.com. It is similar to Etsy or Artfire in that sellers open their store and sell their products. However this site is limited to handmade items only. It has been about 2 months since the site has opened and I do have a few stores on board.

That said, I would appreciate any and all advice on how to market the website. I have personally talked to the local vendors, have a facebook page and have also tried a couple of other advertising venues. What do you guys think about google ad sense? Or advertising with facebook? Are these worth the money they charge? As the site is exceedingly new, should I go all out and spend a lot on advertising? Or wait for info to spread by word of mouth?

Any help in this matter, as well as any other thoughts would be appreciated!!!

Thanks.
Priya
