"Promote Your Sh*t Already!!!"
So why this crazy rant? I'm sick, sick, sick, of hearing people complain; I have no sales, why do I have no sales, no sales help me, why doesn't someone on the site promote us, nothing is selling, is my stuff not good, etc. etc., etc.
Hello, this is your wake up call and I'm not going to sugarcoat this one. People you need to get off your own a$$ and promote!!!
Now I don't expect anyone to go as crazy with the promotion/marketing as I do. I've been doing this for almost 11 years and I cannot slow down now. I want to have my jewelry in Nordstroms before I die!! LOL
Anyway, here is my list of things I advertise and network my sites with;
Kawaii Site that helps promote my cuties!
I'm running ads here and I spend about $5 a month to have mine run on other sites.
Self Representing Artists and Jewelry Designers Contributor
Great Way to mingle with other business owners in your area and make free coupons, newsletters, etc.
My handmade top site list that has almost 500 members!
One of my fab friends and her fantastic bath & body products.

Donated Earrings to an Etsy Giveaway Here
Entry to My Finally Fall Giveaway
My Plugboard and I spend a day a week plugging other boards. (That sounded nasty!! LOL)
Awards I have won, it's so easy to apply!
Site Link Exchange
Artist Networking Central
Free Web Services Where I host my handmade blog ring.
Add to this link exchanges, site/directory submissions, blogging, participating in blog sites/groups, artist networking, re listing, creating, graphic design services, donating to charities, contests/giveaways, craft forums/boards, and much, much, more.
If I can do it you can too!
Now no more complaining and excuses, get out there and promote your sh*t!!!
Really, I do love you all:)
