I am listed on two other sites and I sell items daily, but here, I don't know, I purchased advertising from google, listed on so-called free sites, used my web promoter every two weeks for my ecrater store, you name it, I've done it and yet not one sell.

Hi,

You have a nice store and your items are sharp.

Part of the problem for those of us that deal in jewelry is the economy.
People are having problems making ends meet and we are not selling items that people need. When times are tough, jewelry is not a high priority.

Sales were not that great during Christmas, as compared to previous years. They have been dropping off badly since.

I know this is not what you want to hear but unless buyers have plenty of disposable cash, jewelry is not going to be near the top of their list of got to haves.

Sorry

Another problem with jewelry is all the cheap carp flooding in from China, especially over on the Bay. It looks great in pictures but when you get it (if you get it at all) it looks like the trash it is. Kind of sours buyers on buying jewelry online.

Are you using Goggle Attributes on each listing? My sales have doubled since including them, and I'm not even certain if I get them all correct. I signed up for Adwords and since I had a very limited budget, I believe I just wasted my little money. If you can't afford a budget that will get you page 1 or 2 placement, I don't think it is the most effective way to advertize, but I went to Google Shopping and entered NARS lipgloss, then entered $10-$15 price range. Only One Listing was shown. Mine. I found several others out there, but I'm sure Mine came up because of the Attributes. Smile

Hey Big Tall, question regarding the attributes. I have read everything here regarding google attributes and cannot somehow figure it out. I make and sell handcrafted items and it just does not fit in there anyway. I need some explaining here to figure it out. I too like the start of this topic have great sales at two other sites, but nothing here. Can you help me??

Thanks, LBS

Have you seen these threads on attributes?
http://www.ecrater.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=5937
http://www.ecrater.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=10012

I' suggest you try these:
[!product_type:bird house!] (if ecrater does not have an exact match for your product)
[!color:light brown!]
[!department:home and garden!]
[!height:36 inches!]
[!lenght:36 inches!]
[!width:36 in!]
[!style:handcrafted, rustic!] (casual, fancy, etc.)
[!size:medium!]

But you can always select other on eCraters list if you think will suit your products.

Don't forget:

[!artist:LittleBirdhouseStore!]


I add that attribute to all of my handmade items...after all...we are the "artist" who created the item! Smile
