Great ideas everyone!

I made stickers with my logo and I have been sticking them on the bottom of vases and on jewelery boxes. I also used the same pattern for my avatar background (thank you sweets!) on here, my PinkyK etsy account and my shop. I hoping being consistant will help me create a brand. I think making those stickers into marble magnets would work for a cheap and easy freebie.

Also for those of you with no sales yet - With the exception of one sale, all of my sales have been custom orders for people I know.  I just make them pay through etsy so I get credit for it.  Actually, one sale listed in my store was me testing my paypal.  That's how I found out I had the wrong type of account to accept credit cards!

The only reason I have gotten these sales is promotion.  One thing I do is I have a melted bead candy dish in my office filled with chocolate and everytime someone comes into my office for chocolate I tell them the dish is hand made and that I have an on-line shop! Yes, I lure in sales with chocolate!  Wink


How about Halloween things? Is there a market for Halloween items? I bought some REALLY cute bat beads to make into earrings. I figure if they don't sell I'll keep them! They are cute! We also have a couple of ideas for some really creepy home decor things...  MUAHAHAHHAHAHAH

You're welcome, PinkyK!  You're sucha cutie, it's not like I really had to do anything to make your avatar pop!  Smiley

If your work allows & you do a similar idea to PinkyK's candy dish... get/make yourself a crafty (of course!) card holder and display the cards with the dish.  Smiley

I just sold a lanyard/ID Badge holder I made on a whim yesterday!

I brought the three lanyards I made to work and someone in my office bought it! I didn't make her go through etsy though.  I should have....but I didn't.  Next time I will!

Sorry, the bat earrings aren't listed yet.  Actually, they are just bat beads right now! I am planning to turn them into earrings and list them either this evening or tomorrow evening. I listed a TON of stuff yesterday and I'm trying to be better about spacing out my listings.

I made an AWESOME discovery last night!! My star necklaces I put up for sale are glow in the dark! Well, the outline around the star. I'm not sure about the other necklaces quite yet, when I discovered it last night I was out of it with lack of sleep. Tongue

Who sells biz cards on etsy?
I wanted to buy some from an etsy shop rather than buy through vistaprint again.
Or any other cool websites that I could order from?

Thanks! Smiley

Jeweledmonkey, congrats on your 100 hearts!

I listed two keychain lip balm holders and two keychain vaseline holders in pink/green and pink/blue. They make me think of Florida.

Gr,
