Can you help me?

Hi all - I've had my store up for several months. I've had, literally, hundreds of views on many of my products, and I've made one sale.  Would anyone be willing to look at my store and give me some feedback?  Is it my product, my prices, or maybe my shipping options that are keeping folks from buying?  Please help!  Thanks so much!  Handcrafted by Heinrichs

Hello -

I am not the best to critique another shop but would like to share my experience as a fellow shop owner. For me I find that social media has been an effective tool to attract potential customers. Many of my initial followers were family and friends who eventually became customers. I also market to local shop owners (some of whom I was their customer for many years).  These same individuals and businesses were the beginning of my support group of my small shop.  This was an essential step for me to get invites to participate in craft fairs which led to more exposure for my business.

Each visitor to my booth, business cards that I hand out and posting at least once a day on social media provides an opportunity for me to reach potential buyers. Overtime I learned that what I am building are relationships which consist of myself, my products, the website, and the buyers. Recently, I joined various craft networking groups to stay connected with other creative makers. I will admit that reaching sales goals is a slow process, but I remind myself that I am building something of quality.

I hope you find these thoughts helpful.
