Site Support / I'm back ( again)
« Last post by MsMartyD on July 13, 2019, 06:59:08 PM »
I  spend a lot  of  time  snooping  the  net  and  for  some crazy  reason  I  allowed myself  to  stumble across several  sites  I  don't use  any more. I am  very concerned  about  this  site.   If  I want  handmade  and am not  smart enough to  make an item  I  want  a  crafts person in this country to  do it....   ya  know....   support  the  old  home  team  kind of stuff.    Are  we  in  danger of  becoming  ETSY  2?  .  I  do  appreciate  all  that  I  see  here   and  I  hope  you  won't  fade  away.

The  key  word  being  cave Man.....   Joe  had  his  own  machine  shop  for  a  time  before retirement  but  couldn't  spell anything.   I  used  to  tease  him  that  it   was  a  good  thing  his  name  is  Joe.....   he  might not  be  able  to  sign  his  checks.

I've found a site that I'm finding useful.  Check out 34 Ways To Promote Your Online Shop Like A Pro.  That in conjunction with browsing the bits in the forum are helpful.

Hey y'all!  I'm Gini of Ginspired Arts.  I am a silversmith, painter, woodworker, chainmailler, builder and all-around artsy-fartsy type.
I was on Etsy back when it was only handcrafted stuff, then they decided to become what is basically an online WalMart so I stepped away.  I still have a shop there where I sell jump rings for maillers that gets pretty much no action.
I can't believe this site has been around since 2009 and I just found it.  I'm so glad this is here.
I'll set up my shop and hopefully start selling.  I spend about 5 months a year on an island in the Caribbean, so I won't be able to sell during that time...hopefully I'll be able to put my shop here on vacation during that time.

I do have one question...why is there not a "follow us" link to Instagram?  Just wondering.

I  had  both  hips  replaced  in  1989....    2  separate  trips  to  the  hospital.    Most  days  the hips   are all  I  have that  don't hurt.    I   recommend  it  to  all  I   see.

I'm a relatively new member with a developing shop.  I need a few pointers and suggestions.  I have very limited resources and internet experience.  First:  The banner and profile seem to require exact pixilated photos.  Is this true and is there a way around it without a camera that will pixilate.  I've tried it on my computer an it is proving extremely difficult to get it right.
Second:  Does google search by title, key words or both?
Third:  My previous experience is with physical shows,  I could use some specific suggestions for promotion.
