Hi Guys and Girls, I genuinely hope you are all well.
Ok, heres the deal, I have my muse, well, my vehicle http://www.babazz.com
I think it looks good, I have all departments set up and secure, apart from the all important vital one, sales!
I have set up an affiliate programme and put pages on facebook and tweeted etc, spent hours trying to find that oh so perfect formula, but to be honest, have more or less failed, but I will not give up oh no!
I need to make sales in a nutshell whether through facebook, affiliate, direct, whatever, I know there are people way smarter than me that also cannot magic sales, but a few pointers so I do not waste another 897879 hours pishing in the wind would be great. Is facebook going to do it? are tweets?
Look at the affl programme, sign up if you want!
I got no replies last time, ok, if I make a sale through your advice, lets meet and party or you can have a bracelet or rose!
From a rural english village in Kent.
Many thanx in advance

First of all, great muse! I thought I'd share a few ideas that worked extremely well for me.
1) Business cards are very cheap, so abuse them! I drop them in bowls at restaurants for a chance to win a free lunch, give them out at trade shows and other industry events and even to jot a note on the back for someone. It works the other way too. Have a large bowl or box on your event table asking people to drop name/email/phone in for a chance to win a prize.
2) I've set up booths at farmers markets and other social events in the community. Most of them are free and attract a WIDE variety of people.
3) I had a 5X3 banner made and hang it on the front of my table at every event.
4) Give a free/significantly discounted sample to someone famous or with a lot of exposure to people in a community. If your product is $150, that's pretty cheap advertising!
I hope this helps. Good luck!

Web site looks great. very confident felt very professional. My only advice is give me more details in the product description.
"Gold sandstone, White himalayan crystal on gold plated copper"
Sure its to the point and accurate. but its not much of a sales pitch.
i looked online for just a min and found this
Much more details I liked how it said it would complement or finish your set. they also have videos perhaps you can make a video showing how you put it on and off.
Overall i feel like you have a very polished product. Perhaps all you need is to hand over the seo and ppc work to a professional company. and let them get you the traffic. Good luck

I like your website, and I honestly think your stuff will appeal if you market them in different places. Have you heard of etsy? You could try to post some of your stuff there first to get good exposure and sooner or later if you have any customers loyally buying your product you can refer them to your webpage

deffenetly create a profile on Etsy! You can find people looking for unique products, get "hearts", ...
Also about the website, I like the general feeling but it's not really human, I need a picture of somebody wearing it! Also for me it is not clear why I should pay so much for a macrame bracelet so you will have to explain me why the stones are special, where they come from, why I would feel good having him,...
I like the product though! good luck

hmm ok I have to change positions about this site/muse because now I read the "how it works" information, I tought it was just normal shopping but I saw something completely else in the ho to section...
And really I don't know, I would never buy credits to see a "special price" that I do not know in front if it will be interesting!
So for me 2 big big problems, I did not at all understand the shop in the beginning, so I think because of the concept the how to should be your landing page like how does this new super amazing fun bla bla bla shop works!
Second of all you have to offer people free "credits" so they can discover if the discounts are interesting before buying them (or you should make it possible to see prices but not to buy them or something I'm not sure)
Did you ask people what they tought about the idea?
