I make a one of a kind creation that I`ve never seen before on any of the other crafter websites. But I can`t seem to sell anything. I made changes to it that were suggested to me by a member. I worked the bugs out of my paypal buttons. I made business cards and handed them out to all my friends and relatives. I get people to look at my site, but no sells or even a feedback message. Also how do I get Mcafee Site advisor green check mark. I applied to them to check my site, I also logged into thier site and submitted a website owners critique.  Thanks........www.rusticcreationsbyrandy.com

    Randy, I have 3 important questions to ask you.
    1. What are you doing to promote your site?
    2. How many unique visitors are you receiving on a daily basis?
    3. Where is that traffic coming from? 
    Also, I  visited your website and the biggest problems I saw were the layout of your home page and your copy. There doesn`t seem to be any rhyme or reason to your layout - although I have seen worse. And that `hosted by Yahoo" logo in the top right-hand corner of your home page just doesn`t look very professional. Also, your copy is very weak. It`s not sales copy at all.. It doesn`t speak to the visitor, it`s all about you. Your copy needs to compel your visitors to buy. It currently doesn`t do that. I don`t know what kind of budget you have to work with, but you should definitely consider hiring a professional to help you.

    You might want to check into Wholesalecrafts.com. You can sell your work on this site, at wholesale, and you are then eligible to exhibit at a craft show in Las Vegas. I would definitely start with the website and move on from there.
    One thing I noticed on your website at the bottom you have.."about us" and it reads aboutus, no space.
    Good Luck!

    Everyone has made valid points but... I can`t order more then one item. I get taken to the PayPal page and can`t go back and put something else in my cart without loosing my first item. Think about getting a real cart which will allow you to showcase your products and look more professional as well as allow people to order different items without doing it one at a time.
    We use perlshop, x-cart and osCommerce for our clients, fairly easy to install and run.
    I also have a pet peeve about not using your domain in your Email. How can you promote RusticCreationsByRandy by using a comcast Email account?
