I'm just curious. I've had my store up for maybe three weeks and I've gotten three sales so far with two of them ordering multiple items.

I think it helps that I've got my own toy collecting blog where I've pushed the store and put up a widget, as well as running my own entertainment blog that has the widget. My other strategy is to put links to the store (and a banner when they let me) in my signature on forums. I Twitter and drop mentions on Facebook. Finally, I've even given away some cheap toy I got wholesale (a Snarf pencil topper) via a contest to get the word out. I'm trying to think of more stuff to do, but as it is this is pretty exhausting.

Anyway, does it just take time for your items to show up in searches before you get more orders if you're doing the above types of promotion?

It sounds like you are off to a good start! Congratulations.

I've got the widget on my blogs and webpages too and it seems to help. Keep up the good work and happy selling.
