I would quite like to have a website,has anyone used a WIX website, they are no 1 free website according to google. Also would a website make much difference,re views ,sales etc. Thanks

I had my own website for about 2 years but found it hard to get views unless I actually gave the address to people. After 2 years I decided that I would probably have more luck selling on here and Etsy. Things may have changed in the past 2 years and if its free, then you have nothing to lose by giving a go :slight_smile:

The problem is with having your own web site is that it has to be seen and that means shovelling loads of dosh Googles way (suproise! suprise!) for Google Adds. Like Sam, I found the fees on Etsy and Ebay were more viable than the fees paid to try and get my web site seen and so gave it up. I make sure I have a strong brand image (logo) and individually list on Ebay as a shop proved useless and use Etsy as my showcase shop, sell here and have a nice FB page which I find much more interactive and sociable.

Thanks for your comments, it sounds like it probably won’t be worth it then, I just find that the only people who seem to see my promotions are people who are like me ,trying to sell their own stuff although I have to say I am not the best at promoting.

I have a web site and like others the thing is getting it seen! I don’t pay to promote it but did spend some considerable time working on SEO which really paid off for me. I find a lot of customers find me through my website and I get a lot of orders that way. In terms of selling my individual ‘ready to go’ pieces, I sell and get seen more on Folksy.
