An Entrepreneurial "Freak Out"
Hi All,I`ve read and listened intently for the past 6+ months to all of the excellent advice provided by this community. I am very grateful not only for the information and resources but also the inspiration!Just a little background... My products are Autographicals™, changeable magnetic art designs that are beautiful on cars, appliances, in the office, the dorm, etc. I have a utility patent pending on them and as you can see above, have trademarked my brand name.I have invested in inventory of my first 6 designs and my website was completed a little over a week ago. www.autograhpicals.comUnfortunately, I don`t know if I`m experiencing a bit of an "anti-climatic meltdown" but after sending out a professionally worded "announcement" to about 140 folks, I`m only averaging about one order a day... I didn`t expect the world to beat a path to my door immediately, but as everyone along the way was so encouraging, I guess I expected folks to pass on my web site info. as "the next big thing".My website developer told me that although everything is coded correctly, it takes weeks or months to get the search engines to recognize new sites, regardless of optimization. Is this true in your expericenc? If I type autographicals into search on Yahoo, for example, the site doesn`t come up at all, even though there`s just a page and a half of returns. Since the name is new and unique, I would have thought it would be easier to distinguish and more quickly recognized.I`d tremendously appreciate input regarding what is realistic to expect at this point. I`ve engaged a marketing company to help promote my product and I`ve been told it can take six months min. to get the word out. I`m just not sure what to do to get a jump start on visability and sales. Is pay-per-click is the next thing for me? Is there a way to be sure the search engines can find me? Your input would be appreciated! Caren KatzPresidentNo Middle Initial, Inc.www.autographicals.com
