I’ve been making and promoting my Kerry-All Pouches for a little over a year now. I created a website, did some magazine advertising, gave some pouches to tool companies to evaluate, gave a couple away in contests… But my sales are still very low.
I’m selling on my website, on Amazon.com and some free classified sites. I’m posting on Tweeter all the time, Facebook some of the time.
I’ve been re-doing my business plan, and reading articles on the subject. One quote really caught my eye: Too many businesses think they can provide a product, but are unsure of whether it is really needed.”
Maybe I should have looked at this statement in the beginning. On some woodworking forums, people said “I just use a tarp”, or “I just wait for a sunny day”…
Am I trying to provide a product where one isn’t needed? Your opinions (and feel free to be cold and critical) will be appreciated.
