As per my recent blog post, the main reason I joind DC was to promote www.adupo.com
, the fair trade gift website I launched with Alison Lowndes and AVIF, and to network with like minded individuals. I have been a bit quiet over the last few weeks because of an exam I had to take but I am back with a vengeance, trying to build up the profile of the website.
We have very little budget to work with so most of the promotional activities I am doing are free i.e. myspace, Facebook, WOM, networking sites such as this one etc.
We are looking into using adwords and Facebook Marketplace and Alison is going to sell some of the items on eBay charity to rty and boost the profile of the site.
I would love to hear if anyone has any suggestions about what else we could be doing , esepcially those who have set up their own business.
