View Full Version : Hi Everyone I am from Portland Oregon

02-25-2006, 11:35 AM
Just wanted to introduce myself. My name is Pam and I am from Portland Oregon. I am trying to start an online bead and craft store. My domain is TinyRainbows.com but there isn't much there yet, just starting.

I am especially interested in how people figure out what to charge for prices and how to set up imports from some of the overseas suppliers of beads. I know there is a company in Japan that is known for quality beads but their website says they only sell to Japan. However I can buy their beads at Fire Mountain so somehow they are getting exported.

Would also like any ideas anyone has about marketing on a showstring. I worked for an online store and we spent almost 50,000 a week on marketing with Google and barely maintained a first page position. It was ridiculous. There has to be a better way!

Thanks for making this resource available, I look forward to many new friendships.
