Advertise through friends, forums, classifieds and yahoo groups. Include a link to your website whenever you send out emails. Get hold of your customers' emails and create a mailing list of regular customers. Make it a point to email your customers and get your customers to help forward your website to their friends.

Hi Peggy,

Online selling is never easy and sometimes it depends on luck as well. At least you have the traffic (pageviews), some don't even have that kind of luxury and end up spending $ doing advertising. Some lucky ones have local magazines borrowing their products and end up with free advertisements.

There can be a lot of reasons behind your "many pageviews little sales". Let me go into your blog now and see if I can help further improve your website with my 2 cents worth!

Good Luck!

Here are my comments. No offence yah?

1. Your pics are not clear enough. Invest in a good camera.
2. Sometimes it's not juz the product itself, the background is important. Taking the pic against a notebook will not do. (check out "bag of love", I like the way they have taken their photos, sharp, clear and good choice of background. They are one of those whose products get featured in local magazines)
3. Limited choice.
4. Price is a little too high considering yours is online where minimal operating cost is involved. If the cost of goods is high, then you definitely have to consider repackaging your products to show their worth/value, otherwise think about how you can lower your base cost to rreduce your selling price.

is putting a "advertisement corner" for other online sellers on our blog a way of advertising too? I input a corner for enquiry and advertisment and end all both flooded with advertisments! was wondering if people just come to our blog and advertise their website/products. Was tinking if i should remove?

It is a form of advertising but perhaps not the best way. Suggest to remove. When I surf such blogs, I tend to lose focus on the blog itself, because those advertisements seem far more attractive, and I often find myself moving on from 1 blog to another eg I enter into Seller A's blog, saw some ads, pick 1 and enter into that blog, briefly look at that blog and saw some more ads, pick another one and move on again.

Furthermore, some sellers combine that "advertisement corner" with their customers' Q&A, very confusing. As a buyer, I don't even know if my queries have been answered.
