Since the Swap meets have been very slow, we turned our focus more towards online sales using eBay.com. I have been selling on there since 2004, but mostly focused on rare parts for people to repair electronics.
How it went: Cost of space $0.00! Parking with validation $1
I decided to attend the Maker Faire to promote our DIY blog HowToEngineering.com
We have many items we made on the website that we had around the house, so we were able to bring them and show people! There were over 600 people there in the few hours we were there. This is a lot of free promotion for my company, I handed out almost all my fliers and over half my business cards!
It went OK. With the support of friends and family we were able to barely profit here. Maybe it was the time change (daylight savings time) or maybe the cold weather or the location of our booth (we were over a football field from the public parking lot). I am happy we went and had this opportunity to learn.
