Hi! I've been on eCrater now for almost two months and wanted to introduce myself.

My shop is called Organic Suds and it's over at http://kickchk.ecrater.com

Lately I've been trying to figure out new ways to advertise my store. Any ideas from the pro's out there?
Also have you tried using coupons? On the past few orders I've been including coupons good for a certain percent off on return visits.

Have a great day!!

Pam

The coupons sound like a great idea. Wink

I'm new to ecrater, and haven't sold anything yet, but that may be a great incentive to get repeat business.

Hi and Welcome! So glad you chose to join the ecrater community! The soft brown template you chose for your store is perfect for the products you are selling...quiet and soothing. I'm sure people will find it a nice place to shop!

I know there are several ideas for promoting in the forums that might be useful for you so when you get a bit of time to read them maybe you'll find something that works for you. I haven't given any thought to coupons so I can't really offer an opinion on them one way or the other. I think whatever works for you and fits into the atmosphere you want to create in your store is generally the best avenue to take. How's that for not answering! Laughing

Good luck to you. Vickie

Adding my welcome in as well. Smile

I really like your store. The color chosen fits well with your products.
I bookmarked your store for shopping another day. Will want to be trying some of your soaps.

Good luck and wish you many happy sales.

I love the brown color scheme too. Looks great with the natural soaps.

I haven't tried coupons on my online sales, but I do know that people LOVE them. I know that there's a huge demans for coupon discount codes for online retailers so they must work.

Welcome and good luck!!

I saw where Google checkout offers coupons when you make a purchase.

I saw that too! Google checkout lets you create your own coupons for your customers to use. I've played with it a bit, and have started sending coupons to my buyers in their order.

Do you know how they work.

Do they let you take it off immediately?

Do they offer it so you can take it off the next order?

Do they allow both?

I would be interested in knowing.

Thanks.

kickchk I am curious about something.

How did you get your url to be different from your store name?

Google's coupon codes are just a set of characters (that the seller sets up) that the customer enters at the time of checkout (if they're paying via Google) and the discount automatically comes off. You can set a certain percentage, one per customer, one-time use, etc.

Hi and Welcome.

I like your store, your color scheme, and your logo. I would like to see a little more on your about page because I am sure it would be interesting to know how you got started. I like the seeds category - will you be adding more products here. Also, I would like to know in what part of the country you are located. All in all though, I think you are off to a great start.
