LOL I did my first show back in November and I sold $600 worth. This show is going to be at the same place and I believe they're expecting MORE people to show up this time. I'm excited. What the pictures show is about how much I sell in a month. At Christmas time I sell that much in a week!dragonfly princess said:Are you sure you are not trying to open a freakin store???? Those are awsome!!!
This was actually only my second show ever. All my sales come from my website. I'm thinking about doing mostly holiday shows. I did really good at this one but I did way better at my first show which was a Christmas show. I think people buy handcrafted soaps more for gifts than for themselves. The only thing about doing mostly Christmas shows is my website goes CRAZY at Christmas time. I was packing orders all day 7 days a week! I even had to have my dad come over and help me I was so busy. My first show I made $600 at the show and $400 on my site in the 2 days! :!:Tabitha said:So, what is your primary method of sales? Do you mostly do shows?
Advertise everywhere you can! yellowpages.com, craigslist...anything that's free. Have as many free things as you can, paid advertising will break you. The more people that look at your site, the higher up you are on search engines. It took me a year to get my site up high on search engines and it's still not as high as I'd like. Get your name out there! That's the best advise I can give!The Queen said:Do you have any tips you would like to share on advertising for your website? Traffic is not easy to come by.
