Great advice offered to you from CookieMonster! In fact, I`d urge you to go back and print it out and tape it to your monitor. If you`re looking to keep them on the site longer --- get this right first and foremost!
Thanks for all the comments everyone. I`m working right now on rewording to try to communicate the advantages of using Art Affair better.
Craig, I have over 3000 components myself and I`m not the worst I`ve heard of. I do beading, painting and fiber art and many times mix them all. It`s very nice to sit down at the computer and see at a glance what I have and how much of it I have instead of digging through boxes and bins. Art Affair also helps with pricing and all sales related functions like invoicing, handling commission works, consignment sales, art fair sales, etc. Believe it or not, this is not fast and easy to do in Excel. Most of my customers, judging by my interactions with them to date, can barely use excel. I have done several conversions for customers from their excel spreadsheets and they were pretty bad.
