Finally processed some orders today for shipping and Lady J. dropped them off to the nearest post office drop box. I still have plenty to do.
I've been selling rare books on Ebay and December is really the worst month I had. I was averaging between $1,000 to $1200 on monthly sales but December average was only $300 - $400.00. What a month.
But its the beginning of January and things seems to be picking up. Hopefully sales will continue to rise.
I've decided to spend a little money on some creative marketing and advertising using a poster size calendar I designed for the new year of 2010. I have to say, its really nice. Hopefully it will pay off and add some major cha ching!!! in my pocket book. I designed this 11x17, one sheet, one side, full color and glossy calendar to include in my orders. And if my budget will allow it, I wanted to send each of my previous buyers the calendar. My local print shop printed 100 for less than $50.00
And for the month of February, I was thinking about designing some bookmarks as a giveaway. Three different bookmaks should fit in an oversized postcard by Vista and that would give me 150 bookmarks for $10.00 Ofcourse I would have to cut them myself and ad ribbon for tassels.
