Yeah Mon! I&I have been working for a while on the www.howtotiedye.net website and I feel like I finally have it ready to go, only about a year after I made it so not too bad!
So there are two lessons online, one how to make a rasta spiral and the other on how to tie dye a camo peace sign shirt. But the great thing about tie dye is one pattern can be dyed many different ways for great unique results.
Yeah the site has been ranking on the first page of Google searches too!!
Let me know what you think about the site! PEace!
Yeah Mon! I&I just got our 100th sale on etsy today. I joined etsy on Jan 20th, 2009. So that’s just about 5 months so I am pretty happy. I have been making and selling tie dyes since 2006. Thanks to my wife Amanda for teaching me after we first met! I have really been working hard on my website since last fall and it has shown from the hits. On my website www.madebyhippies.com.I went from about 250 hits a month last summer to around 4,000 a month this year. It’s all with my just writing my website using html code in my good old notepad program.
But yeah I am happy I joined etsy and I am happy to have made it to 100 sales. I would say until I got to about sale #20 or so things were kind of sporadic but ever since oh about the end of April I have had almost an order a day, I love it!!! Sales on my regular website have been picking up as well.
Yeah Mon! So a while back I built a quick one page website called Reggae Music Links as a sub domain on my website www.howtotiedye.net.
I was just doing it for fun at the time, since I enjoy reggae music and was looking around at various musicians websites.
Then I check out the site recently and low and behold it’s getting all kinds of traffic! Actually it’s #1 on google for a search on “reggae music links”
Check it out at reggaemusiclinks.howtotiedye.net
