Searching for New Marketing Ideas

 It is 6:15 Sat evening and I have spent most of this day searching for new ways to market my Raku and Stoneware clay supplies. I have visited lots of other sites that sell clay supplies. Some of them have had sales that were successful and some are selling at bead shows, ie Tucon and other local shows. I put an adv in a major online magazine. Not one person took advantage of my 20% discount. which was offer for approx 10 days. I am at a loss as to what I need to do, but I will not give up. I've been at this for 22years! Yes, that is a long time, just not selling bead supplies.

I will keep trying new ways to get the message out to my customers. The question  is, how to get repeat purchases? I ship extremely fast. I ship in cute little boxes. I have discounted my shipping rate so low that some times it cost me to ship. I give same token of appreciation most of the time. So how and what do I need to do to keep you coming back to  shop? I am open to all suggestions!  Please send me some feedback and I'll put your name in a drawing for a free gift!
