If I ever had a sale like that, the EMT'S would be there trying to revive me! ;D

Views have been really good in my shop as well. I've have been sharing info with everyone who is even remotely interested. Some sales woulod be nice and they will come in time! "Be patient, Grasshopper." ;)


I love you attitude, we had some one join and 3 days later say why no sales. I'm like maybe you should go somewhere else in my head anyway. But if you do the math $5.00 a month is less than 17 cents a day, the $50.00 a year plan is less than 14 cents a day.
If you can't invest that in your business your in the wrong business. Just my opinion, so patience is key and it took us several years to figure that out with our personal sales. Even now about 7 years later we do not set the world on fire with sales in our personal sites, not even talking about the shop here.

So I appreciate the attitude, wish everyone had that, we literally break our back everyday to drive potential customers to the site. Like I said earlier if I had a magic ball to show us how to get people to open up their wallet, we would be millionaires LOL

 :) :) :)   All of your hard work is paying off.   :) :) :)

You have built a site where artists can share their creations with others and receive advice from more seasoned artists.  Your site has a friendly atmosphere,  which is full of talented artists, all working towards same goal.   ;D

 :) I am proud to be a part of Handmade Artists Shop, Forum, and Blog!  Great Job! Thank You!   ;)

Forget "if you build it, they will come".  I built my website and nobody is coming.  The hits on the HAF shops are should all be credited to the amazing work that Andrew, Kimberly and all the senior members have done.  The site is great and all the promotion you guys have done is fantastic.  I don't know how you accomplish all that you do while working full time.  Many thanks to all!!!!! :) :) and more  :) :)

I think part of it is being a salesperson -and I think that maybe online is different than in person.   I'm not sure that I'm a "salsperson" - guess more of an artist.  I had to put my shop on vacation, but I think  had over 1000 hits on at least one or 2 of my photos.

Andrew and Kimberly's (and other talents, I'm sure) level of commitment and dedication is nothing short of stellar. 

It's very rewarding on a personal (if not yet financial) level to have a shop on this site by artists for artists.  HAS will soon become THE site for all things handmade. WTG!

Thank you so much for seeing what we are trying to do!  I am so tired today and have a list a mile long, but you really gave me the bump I needed...well, that and a pot of coffee!

I really wish thegolphingdolphin and a few others would/could read some of these comments.  When everything of mine on the HAFshop has at least 200 views, and a few with over 1200, when most of my ArtFire ones have 17, maybe 80, a couple of the older ornaments and the "tribal bears": are maybe in the 4 or 500's.  But, they have all been on there for at least a year!   I took the glass stuff off, except pendants - because they are not with me for a while.
I am in the process of bringing more of my items over to the the HAF shop - as soon as I get done with a few more posts here.
