It's hard to start something and not have full control over the outcome. Don't you think?
I believe I'm doing everything right to promote my business on ETSY. I provide fabulous customer service, I spend way to much time on twitter & facebook promoting, I've ordered business cards and have even offered to give away an item for it to be "tested" and reviewed and have entered "treasuries".
I think I might have to hit the streets and do a little face to face marketing - door to door maybe?! haha can you imagine that, someone knocking on your door "Hi, My names Sarah and I'd like to tell you about my banners" It would be a change! Might even work, but I doubt it. I think craft fairs are in order.
As I sit here and worry about promotions of my etsy business, I can't help but to think about the headliner that I read on AOL this morning "Former California Gov. Arnold Schwarzenegger has acknowledged that he fathered a child with a member of his household staff." - AOL I'm pretty sure I saw TMZ tweet something about them knowing that 6 days ago. Makes me sad. Another family is falling apart. With that being said, I think I will create a "Family" banner today as a statement of how important family values are. I'll post a picture later.
