Hello people

Our fairly new website selling carefully selected handcrafted knobs and hooks. Do people have any advice for good cheap-ish advertisement. We have tried to go down the blog route which we have a some minor success but we are more used to no responses and being let down. We believe we have a great site and a good product but our average hits is still around 5 a day.

Anyone with any experience in this i would love to hear there advice.

Matt

this site was such a great find today

What about trying to get featured on another crafting blog or channel? Blog post exchange, sending in a tutorial video, networking with other crafters on facebook and forums... Unless you have a fairly large budget, I think networking is the way to go.

Craftster uses Project Wonderful to handle our ads so I would suggest there. You can choose the amount of money you want to put toward an ad.
