So Many Promo Tools, So Little Time

I'm relatively new to the world of ecommerce. I started selling men's and women's jewellery on ebay in October of 2008, and quickly became a Power Seller.

So, I'm thinking to myself, "This is great! I want more." That's when I found the next up and coming sale site, Bonanzle. Bonanzle doesn't yet have the traffic of ebay, but what it lacks in quantity it makes up for in quality. It's great fun.

So anyway, the big question is how do I attract more people to my Bonanzle site?

Bonanzle recommends the following options:

-google base
-twitter
-squidoo
-blogging

With the exception of google base, these are all new to me so I'm in the middle of a learning curve.

This is what I've learned so far:

-Google Base
Relatively easy to use, and well worth the time

-Twitter
Very easy to use, and may be worth the time in the long run.
Worthwhile so far, it that it's been fun to get started.

-Blogging
That's where I am today. It would be easy, if it weren't for the fact that I'm trying to get it published under a domain name that is being transferred from one server to another. Why must we make things so difficult??

-Squidoo
Haven't gotten there yet. It's probably easy, but the amount of new info in my head is making starting new things a little more intimidating.

How will I know whether all of these efforts have paid off? I suppose I'll know if 6 months down the road, I'm starting to get a lot of Bonanzle sales. I'm excited to see how this plays out!

  1. squidoo lenses are fun too, its pretty flexible and easy step-by-step instructions. only i find it hard to insert pictures in there. and you can earn through your squidoo lenses too, although haven't tried that so far. goodluck!

  2. Try Use.com They have thousands of templates. It's free, and you can post up to 100 full size images with no size or bandwidth restriction.

    Works pretty good if you want to do things on the fly without knowing any HTML. Best thing is that you can save and reuse templates later on and their templates are both eBay and Craigslist compatible.

    Worked for me and my images are not limited to what eBay or Craigslist offers plus I don't have to pay extra. Let me know what you think.
