Business Giveaway--A Little Disappointed

So, I'm a little disappointed.  As most all of you know, I run my own business from home.  I am currently seeking to grow my creative realm, and expand my product offerings.  In my quest to accomplish this task, I have created a blog on which I've recently set up a FREE GIVEAWAY to hopefully increase traffic to the site (in turn, increasing sales).  I have read on other blogs where something similar was offered, and their comment section is ridiculously flooded.  That's what my business blog wants to be when it grows up.

I have "advertised" this giveaway on both my blog (obv.) and on Facebook, where I have a few hundred "friends".  Sweet Lindsey has even set up group on Facebook for my business (thank you again, Linds!), and has sent an email to this group also "advertising."  With all of this exposure, I envisioned all of these people, particularly sisters, jumping on the support bandwagon to leave comments either on my blog or on Facebook to be entered.  I guess my thought process was sadly mistaken--I have SEVEN, yes, a mere seven comments.  I thought the word FREE would get people excited, but obviously not.  I guess those seven are just that much more lucky--the odds are fabulous for them!  ;)  I have gotten some really great ideas from those seven, so to you--YOU ROCK, PEACOCK!

No, don't get me wrong, I am so EXTREMELY thankful for all of the support I have received.  I am staying busy, and have gotten a couple of orders recently.  I guess my overactive imagination has just gotten the best of me yet again.  Maybe this is why I had to ask for feedback in the first place?

  1. I'm so sorry LAMM!! I just let time get away from me. I had every intention, but wanted to really devote good thought on my suggestions. I feel like such a heel. I really do think you should open and etsy site. I think you would get a ton more traffic than people stumbling onto your blog from other blogs. You have a much higher chance in having strangers stumble upon you :) People can search for your items & when you post new stuff often, you stay on the front few pages of "recently posted". So that's my suggestion. Sorry it's late and has nothing to do with products. I love you bunches!!
