How to reach people offline ?

15 replies
I am selling some handicrafts, arts and paintings in our team project, the targeted group is the USA and UK housewife who love to decorate their homes with beautiful products such as ours.
So I was wondering if there is any way to reach them and show my products without physically knocking their doors.
Any idea would be appreciated, our site is Handicrafts, Arts & Paintings Store
Regards

    Why not use etsy.com?

    Your site looks fine, I like it, but why not take advantage of sales platforms that are getting a ton of interested traffic already?

      If your tough and have the guts to make it possible then consistent cold calling is the best and fastest way to grow your business..
      remember i said consistent cold calling not just cold calling

      Its because we want people in our site, so that they can check what other products we are offering, check out latest discounts and benefits. So basically we want to promote our site as that is face of our business, otherwise could sell through ebay or etsy. Thanks for your time for helping us though, regards.

    You could start with ebay and for a free option local free online
    classified sites...listing one product at a time.

    Any inquiries you can tell about the range of other options you have.

  • Yea like Andrew said, I would post the ads up on Classifieds and point them back to your website to actually buy the things.

    From there, you can start building yourself a buyer's list and even get them to help spread the word for you through referrals once you have a decent following!

        If you have a physical location host an event to showcase your work. Use Facebook, meetup websites, forums related to your industry to attract attendees.

        If you do not have a physical location become a vendor at local events (fairs, festivals, markets, etc.. Collaborate with local businesses to showcase your work on-site. Use Yelp to find what is going on in your area and become part of it.

        Everyone gets so caught up with online marketing they forget live human interaction is always best.

    What you need to be doing is using Facebook. FB is fantastic for these types of products. Create a fan page for your business, create a few posts with images of your product and then promote those product posts via FB Ads. Target people that have liked Etsy and "Hand Crafted" stuff and/or your competitors.

    Show your ads in the newsfeed (must use Power Editor).

    This company does a great job, although not "hand crafted", still is a fantastic example of someone doing it right...
