1  CRAFTY BUSINESS ADVICE / Crafty Business Discussion / Re: Help me make a website?! on: January 18, 2008 08:41:54 PM
If you want a free website that you can sell your items from I suggest using

Freewebs.com - it's easy to use and you can use their "wizard" to customize your site to the way you want it to look or use one of their free templates which are semi-customizable

Also, if you have paypal you can use the free "e-commerce" system where you can make shopping cart and buy it now buttons for items you sell that allow customers to pay for your items using Paypal accounts or credit cards Smiley

The problem with paypal (Im not sure if it is a problem anymore, actually) is the fact that yourwebsite will not show up in the search results - actually I think my latest website does so that may have changed...

What you can do if your website doesnt come up on a search engine is get a blogger.com site with google for your site as well - so that it will show up in the search results if you name it the same as your store name...

you can also add your freewebsite to all kinds of webrings and links pages

getting a myspace for your business that links to your catalog is always a bonus

you can get free boxes at your post office or USPS.com in bulk - the catch is is that when you ship the item you have to use whatever service the box says on it - which is usually priority mail or flat rate shipping - either way it's a pretty good deal on shipping especially if you can shove something heavier than usual into a flat rate box...

I'd go with USPS over UPS - it's just about always cheaper... also sometimes U-haul and Sams Club give out free boxes

Use old food boxes in your house if you can stand to be informal - or even paint/wrap them over if you want...

I was using Freewebs as a host for my diy clothing webpage but it actually deleted my homepage COMPLETELY when I wasn't even working on it - plus that page had been previously saved MONTHS before... so if you're looking for reliable - freewebs isn't for you

But it is cheap... well actually it's free and you can do a lot with it as a freewebsite service and all... so I would recommend it if you are on a budget or you want some free practice or maybe even want to have some extra pages on a different host that link from your main page

oh I forgot - price wise I think it could go up to about $50 or so - but judging by those Ebay buyers (Im one of them) we likes it cheap as we can get it - Ebay has ripped me off on some pretty cool jackets before too...  but that toxic vision chick could make somehting half as rad and people would pay hundereds just because she put her name in the item description - Im not saying that all of her stuff isn't cool - she makes some good looking shit and all but even when it's not that great it sells as if it was! Plus her photos are so dark I can't even really make out the details that well...

whenever my boyfriend sees me looking at stuff on ebay when her page is up he always asks me if she is trying to sell her self or the clothes. hahah. he thinks she nasty slut. but meh. She can't help it, you know, she's one of them Canadians.  Roll Eyes

It reminds me of a lady bug... wearing a biker jacket...

it's cool though, I would wear it and maybe add some band patches or studs or something too

that's a kick ass mini skirt! I haven't seen people use much hardware on diy clothing in awhile (besides jackets of course) so this is excellent to see...

I had some hot pants that look like it could be the same kind of red leopard fuzzy fabric that you have there

nice plaid ciggies fool! I love stretchy plaid pants but stretch plaid is hard to come by - I want some nice classic red stretch plaid but I still need to find a good low-waisted stretch/leggings patterns?

What pattern do you use? You should make a tutorial Smiley
