Here I am again... after such a long time ! Thank you for your patience as I figure out the best path to the future...
I have been making plans, gathering supplies, looking for solutions, and now I am trying to see what will work best. I finally have a new camera that has a way to shut off the flash, and 16 mp for better pictures. I am hoping to learn all the details this weekend and post some new listings and photos in a number of places, including Etsy, eBay, fiverr, Facebook, Twitter, and wherever else I can upload them. I need to check on my Pinterest pages, too... but my YouTube efforts will have to wait until I get my own computer. :-(
I will be very busy if the photos work out well. I am excited about this opportunity to post a decent photo, and want to try new ways to present the things I want to sell. I will share my lessons with you as soon as I can.
Today I also decided to revisit the website with Etsy shop and treasury widgets and will try to post one here. If it doesn't work, I will have to edit and delete it. We will see... It didn't work on Facebook. I may need to go through the website again... looking for the details.
If you want to check it out for your own marketing needs... go to http://craftcult.com and try one.
I do hope that your Christmas crafts and purchases are going well. I haven't been able to buy too much over the years, so I have been learning about all the special sale days, like Black Friday, Small Business Saturday, Cyber Monday, and Giving Tuesday. I am collecting information for my 2016 plans, and trying to decide how much money I need to have a great memory next year. :-)
I'm not sure how much I can sell this year, but I will do what I can. I have an Etsy COUPON for the holidays to increase sales as much as I can... I decided to offer 25% off to everyone... You can use the code CHRISTMAS2015 through the month. I think I made it valid through the 31st. I will let you know if that is not correct.
I am really hoping to sell my digital copy of SERVANTS. It is only $5, but one of my favorite personal writings. It prints nice and displays well in an 11 x 14 black mat board. A simple frame would be best, to draw attention to the words more than the frame. I hope you will consider making it one of your purchases for this year. I believe it has the potential to become one of our Christian Classics... and I hope it does. :-)
I am looking forward to building my sales sites finally. Photos are really a problem, on some sites more than others.
Enjoy your day, and I hope your holidays will be filled with joy and hope and peace.
NOTE :: I tried to make a link to the widget, but it doesn't function here... I will get back to you on why after I find out myself.
