    So I have a few guys overseas make products for me, mainly handmade genuine leather. These products are exceptional quality but I struggle to get out of the ebay>amazon>etsy cycle, average a few sales one each platform a day I can make around 100-200 a day, but firmly believe that I can make more. I was a good retail seller (Stores are not really worth for leather no more) so I am looking into which direction I should be heading ot maximize and increase my sales. Add ecommerce site? Start marketing harder? Social media? what should be a good way to go guys?

    Two that come to mind:

    Drive traffic to your items on Amazon via a double opt-in

    Pinterest Botting

    be creative on social media, these things get popular fast if promoted well. Especially on Pinterest.

    A high quality brand webstore and a strong social media push would seem the obvious solution?

    Pinterest would no doubt be a winner. Women love leather goods, particularly hand made. Women also love pinterest. Winner.

    Edit: I don't even think you would need to go as far as botting. If your products are good enough, you will probably make traction particularly at this time of year.

    This is the time to hit social media, as much as you can. You can read here on BHW about generating traffic using FB/Twitter/YT. :)
