Whenever I am free which is not often, I would browse through websites that sell homemade products. I think there has been a major increase in the number of sellers this couple of years. With the way our economy is, everyone must be working hard to earn more money to survive and every little bit helps. Lately I also noticed a lot of sellers are offering promotions and free gifts like keychain carabiner or lanyards. I guess with such a stiff competition within the homemade goods market, it has become necessary to promote aggressively else you will get lost in the sea of mass vendors. Hopefully the promotions will be to boost their business.
