You’re in a crowded market with established players. That will make it difficult to break in. No offense to you but, given the choice of buying from a known source or your site, I’m going to go with the names I know. Even my local Woodcraft is selling 2g for just a couple of bucks more per gram than you are. There, I can actually see the product before I buy.

Posting in forums isn’t the answer for getting your business going. It’s all about SEO. Being at or near the top of page one of a search for something like “crushed opal inlay” is critical for bringing traffic to your site. Rather than spend your time posting links to your site on places like LumberJocks, get up to speed on SEO. You also need to be patient. You won’t climb to the top of the search engine results overnight.

To develop a reputation here on this site, you’ll need to make helpful and relevant contributions to member’s questions and comments. That’s what will make members take the time to look at your stuff.

Don’t be put off by the spam comment above. I don’t see your post as being spam. Repeatedly posting nothing but that URL, without truly participating in the forum, would be another story. You can, however, include your URL in your signature and your profile. That, combined with being a contributing member of our forum, will generate interest among the members here.
