Shane, I’m thinking of marketing to Powell Gardens. I was out there a couple weeks ago and their chairs are in horrible condition. I could cut them a good deal. I just hope they don’t have an in-house woodshop that does that, but if they do, they sure are behind in keeping up. People are getting splinters on those old chairs.

Thanks Bullethead. I need to get 30 likes so I can have more control over the page. Facebook business pages are very hard to figure out, I need a teenager around here.

Top Quality Cabinets “liked” your business page. I have had my business FB page for a very long time with very regular postings but still only have 10 likes myself. Oh well, maybe someday I might hit that magic number of 30. But I really do not know that I will have any more or less control once 30 peeps like my site.

Thanks Jerry. You’ll have 11 soon. Facebook is like anything else in advertising, you need to work on getting people on there. It’s the name recognition and the occasional word of mouth sale you get. I decided going in to this that even if I didn’t sell enough to be self employed that I would just stick with it until it happens. I might have to get a job elsewhere, but I’ll always be around to make chairs.

Thank you all so much for liking the Facebook page. I now have enough ‘Likes’ to track some statistics and help from Facebook in reaching and getting folks engaged in my work.
Charles, once again thank you for allowing me to mention your excellent product, Charles Neil Pre-Color Conditioner. I swear by it and tell everyone I know about you. I hope it increases your sales somewhat from the Kansas City area.

Russell, thanks for the “like”. I hope your business venture goes very well. I would just advise to ensure you are priced correctly. I have been doing my business for a couple years now and we are still trying to get our pricing correct. I have seen our prices continually go up due to being too low to start with. A chair should be simpler to price out so hopefully you are at a point where you don’t leave much money on the table. That has been my biggest single hurdle to jump.

I also read your article and it was great! I wish you the best of business.
