Was reading on another thread about views, and although I promote on Twitter (#crafthour, #handmadehour) and post in quite a few FB groups and pages it’s not generating any sales. The FB pages I engage in seem to be full of fellow crafters, which is lovely for chatting wise but let’s face it I’m also there to sell. When I have posted my stuff it ranges from quite a few likes to nothing at all. I also find some of the groups/pages post stuff that’s not to my taste (bling and shabby chic) so networking can be a challenge as I believe in genuine interaction rather than sharing/liking for the sake of it. Perhaps promoting on FB is not for me?
Now I know with most of my stuff being over £50 that not many people have that kind of disposable cash, so how else can I reach potential customers? It seems short of paying for adverts in expensive magazines, promoting for free isn’t working for me. Am I missing something?
Anyone else in a similar price bracket in the same boat as me?
