Getting the Word Out There

At times it seems so difficult to promote your items for sale and the sites that they are for sale on. My mission over the next couple of weeks is to spread the word somehow about how people should visit my shops on Zibbet. Sometimes I think maybe the key is attraction NOT promotion. How can I attract people to visit me? How can I get them to want to visit me in the first place?

Well, first do I have what they want. I think so. I mean Daintie Designs right now specializes in greeting cards. I know greeting cards aren't used as much as they once were because of the world wide web, but they still are & should be an important part of the human exsistence. I mean it isn't only proper ettique to send a thank you note when you receive something nice, a gift, a gesture, etc., but it is the right thing to do because that is what your mother taught you. It is just simply polite and kind. And what about a good old fashion birthday card? Who doesn't love to receive snail mail still these days? And what better day than when we are celebrating their special day, they day we celebrate the people we care about. I could go on and on of why and when we should send cards.

Then I think about the cost of my items. I sell all my cards for $2.25. You can't even think of buying a nice card at any store for less than $3.50. So I think the cost is right. I mean these are handmade cards with a lot of love and care put into them let alone lots of time and money. Let me tell you - it isn't cheap to purchase all the things you need to make a homemade greeting card. So $2.25 is a very reasonable price I think.

So how can I promote or rather ATTRACT the general online person to me? To Zibbet? This is what I am going to try to learn to do because I don't have the answer right now. The first thing I am going to do is to send a mass email out to all those people who's email address I have and let them know that I exist. That I am here if they need me. I will let you know where I go from there.

You can visit me at:  Hope to see you there.

Have a terrific day,

Because I don't have my sight most of the time, it is taking me a little longer than I would like to get my items completed and listed.
