I've never done direct sales before and I'm feeling overwhelmed. I just started with origami owl a couple months ago, and I feel like I'm spending more money than I've made. I don't have a big network of people really...but how do I get my name out there? Besides doing events and things like that, how can I advertise to draw in more business?

I'm hoping for this to be an opportunity that allows me to go part time and spend more time with my boys. Any advice is much appreciated.

Thank you!

You might wanna try posting your products on e-commerce sites like ebay or amazon for potential customers.

Thanks y'all, I've actually started to have a lot more luck with it. I really enjoy it!

Unfortunately Ebay and the such are not allowed, but I do have a Facebook page set up for my business now and it has drawn a lot of fans.

Look me up if you are needing a great gift!
