I have advertised in the 'Trading ' section for almost a year now and have not had one order!

In my experience, I've found that the Trading Post section of the forum sells more than the main site.

I took up gofarmers kind offer and joined up to gofarmer, but have not heard anything about upgrading from a buyer to a seller.

Has anyone else?

Is that not one order from anyone or not one order via downsizer?

Good question. Why don't you try Rob's approach and put up a post on the forum just to see if it performs better?

I think we need to find more ways of showing the trader adverts, both on the forum and the main site.

Order via Downsizer.

Rob, I have been emailed by Rachel upgrading my status to seller. However she did say that they are now away at 2 shows and will not be back until next week. So don't panic!!!

So the people that have ordered from your site have googled for it have they? Like I say it'd be nice to see whether you sold anything by offering it through the forum...

I'd like to know how you make it - I designed and made silver jewellery in my distant past for my family and friends so would be interested in your techniques.
