I have another more immediate problem and that is the creation of a
web site for my jewelry. The site needs to be commercial and not
simply a brochure. A friend of mine, who makes lovely silver
jewelry, told me that web sites do not help you sell your jewelry and
they are a waste of time. If I believe her I am left with craft shows
which have proved to be marginally profitable and not the best venue
because of some special needs. In addition, I have another full time
job and therefore cannot spend a lot of time going to craft fairs.
Does anyone have some advice on the benefit of web sites? Does
anyone have advice about people who create web sites who live in
Maine. I would want to visit the person and discuss my needs. My son
in Calif. recommended a friend who is very, very expensive and I
don’t see the value in spending a great deal of money on a project
that may or may not be valuable. Some of my jewelry is on my facebook
page…my students shamed me into putting one up. I’m not certain if
facebook is a force for good or ill?
