It's time for another ride on the merry-go-round! Jump on and join a group of 9 artists/crafts-women as they link around the world and tell you a little about their lives in art and craft.
This month topic is: "Failure sucks, but instructs".
Recently I received a message from a fellow seller in Dawanda, she asked me how to know what customers want and how to make sales.
I think the major failure to all of the sellers is that we cannot make sales. This especially sucks when you just start your business.
I haven't answer the question to the fellow seller yet. The main reason is that I really don't know how to answer it. I think it over and over in my mind and try to make a good answer when I drive or do some other things.
But all I can say is that you try to perfect what you are doing, don't worry too much on sales and customer likes. If you really have wonderful products, people will come to buy from you.
If you enjoy what you are doing and you don't need to worry about money, you can try to put all your effort to make beautiful and unique products. Something that people will say "wow" when they see it.
One thing I believe that in the Internet world, if you work hard, your products are unique and excellent, there are plenty of lovely people somewhere out there will notice them and buy from you.
I want to learn from her as well.
That's all from me. There are many other lessons to learn as small business owners. It would be very valuable for you to visit others to find out more about it:
