Fed Up With Online Selling

Maybe it’s the No BS mood I’ve been in lately, but I am completely and totally fed up with online selling.

I’ve tried Etsy.  I’ve tried a local website called ShopLancaster.  I have taken photos, ran coupons, and had sales.  No luck.  And that’s just for handmade stuff.  I’m not even going to go into the misery I’ve ran into with photography.

That’s it.  I’m out.  At least for now.

I’ve done better with word of mouth and inviting people over to my home for handmade shopping.

I quit the craft show thing a while ago.  It’s just not worth the time or effort for me.  No one wants to pay for the quality and time of a hand knit item, at least in my area, they don’t seem to.

I know, sound whiny, but I need to rant.  Maybe I can save some other crafter out there some agony by helping them make the decision NOT TO SELL ONLINE.  The return of investment, at least for me, just isn’t worth it.
