It is a whole different, and very much nicer environment. Everyone seems to be a part of a much larger team. Last Saturday I had my first Bonanza, which is a special sale run for a hour or two giving a percentage discount during the event. A lot of people stopped in and wished me the best of luck, and a few of them have 'Favorited' my booth. I checked a few of the booths around mine, and guess what? These were some of the people whom I had seen coming into my booth!
A more caring and supportive bunch of people can be found no where else on the internet; probably not in the brick-and-mortar world, either!
I have spent today and part of last night reading posts on several of the forums, and have come conclusions. One of the mistakes that I made was to raise the prices on items in an attempt to recover losses from the high fees at my 'other', fee-based store. After reading the forums, I checking on Google, and, believe it or not, my items showed up on the old site, at lower prices. I have not had a store there for several months, and have nothing even listed on their auctions, but previous items still are listed!
Thinking further, why should I raise my prices now that I promote and sell them much cheaper on Bonanzle, I spent some time this afternoon lowering my prices to more accurately reflect what they were before I moved here. Rome was not built in a day, neither was Bonanzle, nor was Al Hansen Woodworks. I didn't lose a lot of money on the other site overnight, and I have decided that I don't need to make a ton of it here, overnight, either.
Take a look, see if there is something that you like. If there is, great! If not, check some of the other booths. There is something for everyone at Bonanzle!
