I have one. Finally it is getting bigger. I have bene making candles/soap for 3 years now and selling for about 2. I absolutely love what I do. What do you do and do you like it or are you only doing it for the money?

I have recently signed up as an affiliate for a company that has Gift Baskets, Gourmet candies & Nuts and lots of other Yummy stuff. I haven't generated an income from it yet because I have just gotten started, but I have made 1 sale so far (HOORAY for me...lol). I really want to make this a successful home business because jobs in my area are far & few and the pay isn't all that great either. I have been trying to market my webstore online, to family & friends, parents at the school and everywhere else that I can possibly think of. What has been working for you? Are you getting your sales from word of mouth? Online? Family & Friends? Any ideas or suggestions to help me get started? Thanks!

My webstore is www.cajuncountrygifts.com/go.cgi?shop=9207 I was thinking about getting some samples and wrapping them up in little gift baggies, attaching a business card and passing them out to my neighbors, parents at the school, family & friends. I thought this way people would be able to taste how good the products are and then may be more willing to buy them.

Samples are always great. I get a lot from word of mouth now but it all started with family and friends and online friends. Make a brochure if you can and pass them out. I will check out your site soon.

I make jewelry and Christian jewelry, that I have been doing for a little over a year. I enjoy doing it. I would like to get a web site to show case it. The Christian jewelry I make is used for witnessing tools, and say things such as I (heart) Jesus, Jesus (heart) Those are just a few of the ones I make. And I have a regular customer at church who buys them often. I would like to show case them as fund raisers eventually too.
