    When you started your business and had your product ready for market, how did you first try to sell it, other than word of mouth?  Did you book space at a trade show?  Run radio/newspaper ads?  What did you do first, and was it successful for you?

    It helped us discover what worked, what didn`t, what processes were useful, which were pointless. It got us a sense of where we stand, how to compete, and what people would be willing to spend. We factored in the "flea market" bias, and that helped us figure out a pricing structure.

    Hi Craig,

    I`m also thinking about selling my product on ebay - now that I know where to post SmudgeGuard under! So do you have any good tips to share for those of us thinking about selling on ebay? I`m curious to hear your full story of what worked? What didn`t?

    Thanks!

    Craig,

    That is very valuable information! Thanks for your detailed reply! I really appreciate it!

    So if you say that the category doesn`t matter and that the Title is most important, then do I just type in a title that has the best key words?  Doesn`t it have to make sense?

    For example, would I just type something like this:

    Wacom Glove, Left-handed, Tablet PC, sticking to, Smudges?

    Just need to understand it a bit more.

    Thanks!

    Kathy,

    What would you say is the best day to start the ebay auction on?
