Your name or Shopid *
How long did it take you to become a proseller? *
12-24 months (1-2 years)
What advice can you give to someone who wants to become a proseller? *
Many products, more than 1 store. Keep stores in one "theme".
& then advertise everywhere possible. Also don't load a store & then forget about it. Keep adding at least a few products to each store regularly. Keeping your store updated & searches will keep crawling your store.
How many stores do you have? *
What benefits do you see for choosing this number of stores? and what do you recommend for others who are just starting out on whether to choose 1 store or multiple stores? *
I stay a bit more organized. I "believe" searches like "themed" stores better, with things that are relevent with each other. But that is my opinion. Benefits?... more sales? more money?

As for newbies... ONLY start with 1 & work it. I think every store should have 500 to 1000 items at a minimum. If you find you are adding a particular type of design or product, then it may be time to open the next store.
What types of advertising do you do? *
  • Blogs (blogspot, wordpress, etc.)
  • Microblogs (twitter, plurk, etc.)
  • SNS (facebook, myspace, etc.)
  • Forums (groups, messege boards, etc.)
  • Other Free
What types of advertising do you recommend for someone just starting out and why? *
Facebook of course... then Twitter, squidoo lenses & blogs.
Also find a message group/forums that have a targeted audience.... check their terms & add hyperlinks to your products as much as allowed. Don't spam.. but there are many boards that are for other online sellers etc.
Also join groups & pages on facebook that allows you to list a product or 2.
Not talking dollar wise, just volume & frequency of sales do you... (select all that apply, some answer may be contradictory based on seasonal sales) *
  • sell at least 1 product per day very day all year
  • sell under 5 products per day on most days
  • have 1 shopper pruchase over 25 items in 1 purchase at least once per week
  • sell a lot of lower priced items like postcards and buttons
  • sell a lot of mid priced items like tshirt and necklaces
  • sell a good mix of all items regardless of price
  • have great seasons/months and horrible seasons/months
  • do well January-March
  • do well October-December
