So it's time to try something "new." I say new because I'm talking about selling on eBay which is decidedly not a new idea - for me or most anyone else. But I'm going to go about it in a different way. Starting either tomorrow or next Sunday, I'm going to start selling one of my necklaces on eBay each week. And I'm going to start the auctions at $1. I think it will be fun to do it this way and learn a few things:
- how well my "stuff" sells on eBay, (I've sold a few necklaces there but it was literally years ago when I was just getting started.)
- if I can't get some more traffic to my website by marketing my work through eBay,
- and I'm sure there are other lessons I could learn too, I suddenly hit a wall with what I had thought was going to be a longer list. Hmph.
But I need your help. Although I've narrowed it down to three pieces, which I finished working on earlier today, perhaps others would like to help me choose which one to start with. I'm putting photos of three necklaces in this entry. They all just happen to be glazed in the green family, although I promise I do occasionally use other colors. It was just my mood today. As most people who visit this site know, I don't use molds and my necklaces are one-of-a-kind. So the three I chose are similar but also fairly different.
I'm also posting a similar inquiry on another website of mine that you've never seen a link to. It's a fairly new project and I'll tell you a little more about it sometime soon. Anyway, I mention this to let you know that there are a bunch of people who will see these and who could help me pick. But I have no way of knowing how many people will actually participate. Would you? I'd really love to know what people think...
Okay, so maybe it's a little silly to put out a question soliciting your input on a decision I want to make asap, on a holiday weekend. I hope that's why I didn't get any responses, anyway... I got enough feedback to my parallel request at the other blog and I've listed necklace #3 on eBay today in an auction that will finish up in a week. Here's a direct link. Just so you know...
