Hi my name is Julie and I started an Etsy shop with my sister, Beth, and our niece, Jessica, back in December of last year. Our shop, Shine Girlz Jewelry, shows off our eclectic style of jewelry making and lets us share it in an affordable, fun way. We each like making different types and styles of jewelry and sharing them with other people.

Some of this can be addressed by talking to someone in the know – a designer friend, getting quotes for materials etc. Turning it into cash is again harder, because how do you get your product out there and visible so that people can start buying and talking about it? At this stage many creators give up and go back to their boring day jobs. Sad indeed.

But if you haven’t thought of what to buy yet, here are some of the great gifts to give this season. For women, shoes are always on top of the list, jewellery comes along next, and clothes. For guys, gadgets would be on top of the list, next are watch and clothing.

With Etsy our shop Shine Girlz Jewelry is fun and easy. Etsy makes it easy to set up and maintain an fetishclub onlineshop. Etsy provides great help and information to help you get your shop up and running. I appreciate that Etsy sells only handmade and vintage items. It helps crafters show off their wares and makes it easy and rewarding. I love when someone says they like my shop or a piece of our jewelry. I also enjoy shopping for supplies on Etsy because they have unique and different items then I would find at my local craft or bead store. I also enjoy looking at what other beaders are making and selling on Etsy and that inspires me and makes me want to create.

While we’re on the subject, have you visited our online websites? Daraz.pk, Homeshopping.pk, Azmalo.pk and the sort? Well they are just throwing away money aren’t they? Buy this and Rs.500 coupon, like our page and win an Ipad, and Iphone, a bird, and airplane! Who likes free stuff? Wouldn’t you rather go to a store and go home with what you paid for no free goodies, no surprises? I mean these online stores, in their effort to attract customers to online shopping are willing to actually give practically everything for free. If it’s not the giveaways its some kick ass deal 30% off or 50% off ,I mean are we beggars? or worse sellouts? No thank you, Azmalo.pk, No thank you!

Marketing a small business from home can be done in various ways. You can begin by sending out samples to some friends, as they are your foremost clientele, and get them to spread the word to other people they know.

LED lights can be a very useful tool in your home, especially if you are environmentally conscious or want to save money in the long run. These savings can really add up. If you were to run a single reading lamp with an LED bulb 12 hours a day for a year, it would cost less than 50 cents, and you wouldn’t have to replace the bulb. But even though they give off more light than a standard bulb, you will still need more of them pointing in many different directions to light up a room because the light is very directional.

Healthcare products are something that one cannot play gamble with. A wrong deal and both money and the patients are put to risk. It is well said that a stitch in time, saves nine. In the crowd of many sites offering health care supplies it may be finding a needle in a haystack but when it comes to something valuable as life, a little hard work might just pay off.
