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? *|| |
|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) *|| |
|What product in your store are you most proud of or what product in your store is your favorite? Include link to product page and why it is your favorite. *|| |
My whole store at http://www.zazzle.com/savewhales*
only because 100% royalties are donated to the Sea Shepherd.
Otherwise... I love all my designs in all my stores.
