1000+ Hits in less than 9 days!!!! WOW!
« on: February 25, 2010, 07:33:20 AM »
Hi Everyone.  My name is Candy and I am the creative force behind EyeCandy Chainmaille Jewelry.  I wanted to shout from the rafters about my experience with the HAF Shop.  It has been great so far.  I have had more than 1000 hits in just 9 days.  That is the most I have gotten in such a short time ever!  Trust me, of all the selling sites that are out there, HAF seems to be the fastest growing and the one currently getting the most attention... at least IMHO. 

Come on it!  Take a look around!   Sign up for a shop and see how things go for you!  If you are so inclined mention my name... if not, just come and see what is happening.  You might be pleasantly surprised with the results!  I know, I AM!

Thanks for the votes of confidence.  I like watching my hit numbers grow also.  I wish the sales would stack up as fast as the hits do but that would probably kill me trying to keep up. :D 

Good luck to everyone!  Tell all your crafty friends about the forum and the shop.

Thank you Andrew.  The promo tools are really helping to make it a little easier to get the word out.  I am hoping that when I add advertising and the kits things will start to pick up.  What I think is making things harder is the economy is as frosty as the East Coasts weather has been.  But I shall persevere.

I hope that everyone will start to use their tools to do promotion and such.  I have a total of 6 current webshops and 2 more that will be coming up in the near future.  This one is the only one I have had this much traffic on. 

Viva la HAF Shop!!!

Is everyone else with a HAF shop getting thousands of hits also?

I don't know about everyone, but the site is getting traffic.  When I just checked my stats, I got a few over 1000 in the last month which is really good for me.

Not everyone is getting 1000's of hits but we have been working hard to promote as much as we can. It takes time to build a website and generate traffic it usually takes months if not years to accomplish this. Anyway here is the the top 44 product views over the last couple of weeks.

Not me, but one of my pieces got 824 hits on etsy, and no body favorited it, so I dont know what to think.  I am assuming that the name got up the interest, Fine Silver Shatter Star, because a lot of hits came through a Flickr post.

I am all for the site, and am willing to promote like somebody crazy, I have been looking at peoples things and twittering them on my twitter and posting on facebook.  I will do more of that directly from the HAF  store. 

I have to tell you Andrew, I still find it hard to list items.  I must be missing something.

you can pm me or email me. Part of the problem you are having is your pics are huge. You should resize them to less than 1000 pix I fixed one of yours the other day and the pic was like 2400x3000. Thats too big. The average monitor is no bigger the 1000-1200 pix so when you upload a pic that big it tends to not work that well. Let me know if you need more help. Plus you can also post in the private sellers area under support and suggestions and I'll or someone will walk you through.
