When selling online, it can be easy to forget about the human factors in a business, which are touch and feel.
You can have some of the greatest pictures in the world, hired the best photographer, but sometimes, you just have to get your products into a potential customers hand for them to appreciate your work.
If you create your own products, such as jewelry, clothing, totes and purses etc, then you have a great opportunity to create your own advertising program, and still have the human touch in your business.
Here is the best way, to get the word out that you are in business, and to let potential customers see your work in person, and yet still have access to your other work online, which could then lead to sales or a newsletter, affiliate products and more.
Create your best pieces, and I mean your best!. Seek out some of your best and supportive friends and family that work in very public areas, where there are likely to be lots of potential customers or admirers.
Have them wear or display your product, if it is jewelry, have a great pin or necklace or earrings, if its clothing, a nice dress, sweater, or if its bags, a unique tote, or painted bag. . the list is endless. . and make sure your piece suits your friend or relative, and they are more likely to promote it. Better yet, make it a gift for them, they will appreciate it, and it can be classified as an advertising expense for you.
Make sure they have business cards of yours, to hand to interested people. Make sure your card contains your name, what you do, and your website address, and on your website, offer a opt in mail in list to keep them up to date with new pieces, shows, and affiliate products that you could sell as well as your own pieces.
Grow your online business by keeping the human touch.
