I was fortunate enough to have my product and website in the local paper, The Rochester Democrat and Chronicle – pretty good sized newspaper. The article is here.

I’ve had one vendor in California (surprisingly) email me for product. :)

Exposure can’t hurt!

That’s cool

Now if you could get a Republican newspaper to write a story you would have both parties covered. LOL.

It really has done well for me:

• A neighbor bought a clock;
• An outfit in California wants to sell my stuff on a drop-ship basis;
• A lady called me asking to do a custom cabinet job;
• An older lady, whose husband recently died, asked me if I wanted lumber he had left!

All that in two days.

I have no illusions it will last for long, but at least it’s a help, and I learned about marketing.

-- Have a blessed day!

Nice write up. Congratulations. From the looks of your work, somebody should have been writing about it long ago. Good looking clock!
