Thanks Christine, I always like to take advice, its how we learn, I agree with what your saying, thanks sweetie I appreciate.
I woke up feeling low today, I’m recovering from shingles and was feeling right sorry for my self and negative on my shop. I paid for folksy plus and haven’t had a sale on Folksy since early May, before then what ever sales I had was from followers on Instagram, I have only ever had 1 sale direct from folksy, I am considering not renewing my plus account and closing my shop.I wanted to at the very least cover my cost and earning a little money and that’s not happening. I promote shops on folksy and support the forum.I am pleased to see sales for my folksy online shops but it’s so disheartening when yet again you don’t have a sale.
I’m on the whole a positive person but am becoming negative to my shop, or I could say I’m being realistic and asking my self why bother I understand why so many are leaving IG, even ones who have been here for a few yrs.
I will take your advice on my shop announcement, see if that helps. I am offering free postage on a lot of my items and I think my prices are reasonable. I go on search for my items and my items do come up so I’m guessing my items don’t interest people. I have lovely comments from folksy fellow shops on my shop items but this doesn’t reflect on sales.
Thanks for your help Christine, your shop does well and good quality Jewellery, Jewellery sells well anywhere, prints and paintings doesn’t unfortunatley, thants why I started crochet sewing and crafting other items.
The shingles doesn’t help how I am feeling, anyway enough of my moaning, all the best to you Christine
