Some good suggestions but The whole world does not evolve around just the internet. I’ve played the game of shipping product across country and I’m not going there any more. If your selling bird houses or oven rack pushers it’s not a problem but shipping a piece of full size furniture is to much of a hassle for a one man operation. I’m glad there’s people out there that art still optimistic. I say go for it guy’s and more power to you. I’ve read lot’s of books and taken classes on marketing and find it very interesting but theory is one thing and reality is another. I found that my local market is just to small to build a large clientele in the price range necessarily to make custom furniture profitable . That’s one of many things to consider when staring your woodworking business . You have to be willing to switch gears when you find your heading in the wrong direction and marketing does not solve all of those problems.
