Just stopped by to say hello and invite anyone interested to stop by my new store Just Red Wings. I sell collectible pottery from the Red Wing and RumRill Pottery Companies. It's quite beautiful and really fun to collect. Being new here, I haven't put too much up for sale. I would like to see if anyone can give me some help with getting sales. I can see where I've had a few hits, but no buyers. Please check my store out and let me know what you think. Very Happy[url][/url]

PROMOTE your store. Unlike other saling venues YOU need to get your buyers to your store - they are not coming to you if you don't go get them.

I suggest you grab a drink and start with this topic
http://www.ecrater.com/community/viewtopic.php?t=4
Open up word or note pad and copy the ideas you like into it
the sort them buy those you can do quick and easy and get them done
then start working on the ideas that you need to investigate and learn how to do.

There are tons of roums on the internet for pottery collectors - join them and share you knowledge with them. In every post there sign it with your URL.

Hello and welcome - you made progress in getting your store set up, but might I suggest that you replace the "stock image" picture that shows? You might want to also add your categories, that way the various selections of pottery that you have will show. You have a lot of room left in your home page category, that's valuable space that could be used.

Just a few thoughts - Dawn

I have suggestions about your pics. Don't crop so close to the object and offer additional pictures of front and back and bottom. People collecting old pottery want to check for chips, cracks etc. especially when they are shelling out lots of bucks. I would want to see a picture of the pottery marks. These items are frequently reproduced in China and sold as genuine antiques.

Is shipping included in the price? If shipping is shown as 0, expect it to ship free.

Hi! Welcome to ecrater!

You have quite a few items listed already! I am always surprised by that for some reason. You should be quite thrilled with your accomplishment so far!

Others have given you good advice about bumping up your welcome page and shipping. You have tons of space to use so when you can wrap your head around what to say, go ahead and start filling the spaces. In your terms you might want to mention what your return policy is, if items are insured during shipping, who is paying for the shipping is always a good one too! Laughing You have 100 characters to use for your item titles and up to 10 pictures for each item. I don't know anything about Red Wing pottery so I'm wondering if you could help people like me out by mentioning why it is so valuable, its history and other info like that.

If you get stuck on any of your store set up, check out the forums. They are jam packed with information to help you along but if things are still as clear as mud, don't hesitate to ask for help. People are more than willing to lend a hand to get you going!

Great to have you here. Good Luck
Vickie

Hello,
I just looked at your store. Very, very nice. The items for sale are stunning! If I were you I would subcategorize i.e., vases, planters, etc...

I am curious if you are selling pottery why you have a wine goblet in your store picture? Are you planning to sell glass too?

I am new too. I wish you well.

Welcome to ecrater. I love vintage pottery, so it's nice that you're selling on ecrater. You might want to add to your "about me" page, let customers know your history selling pottery, things like that.

Good luck!!
