SpecialTea Brew ---tips anyone?

Hello all the Tea lovers of the world! I have started my own online Tea business and am wondering if any of you have any tips on marketing for it? How do you get the ball rolling on a customer base other than just family and friends? I have a semi small inventory at the moment but have very high quality teas from (teas etc) that I am selling as well as some great accessories. Check out my website :) http://www.specialteabrew.com
thanks so much and happy tea brewing everyone :)

Brew what you love, and love what you Brew!

You know, I would love to sponsor you on my site!

I mainly only do indie film makers, but as I love tea, and we are both starting out, I would have no problem telling my fans about your tea! :D
It might make you a few sales. Can’t make any promises tho….
(keep in mind I am just a small vlogger, ect..)

My site is http://www.catsaredoom.com

jHblamo I just emailed you , looking forward to “sponsoring” eachothers sites :) thanks again.

one of my other friends actually cant get on my site from her work computer. Very odd, I need to figure out why this happens to people. Thanks for the heads up Jessica

Employers block a lot of websites so the employers don’t goof around.

Yea, I had a similar problem with one of my clients websites… For like the first week she couldn’t get to her site… (The internet is a strange mistress…)

try the website “is it down for everyone or just me” – also try recording their ISP and state and browser

that is a cool site! I just tried it and it says “its just me”…. as for recording their ISP and state and browser, where do I do that?

Hblamo said

Haha, that site is legit!
(nice for a webdesigner) haha

Cofftea said

Oh yes Hblamo- it’s AWESOME! My mom uses it for school daily.

Cofftea said
Hblamo said

@Cofftea Is your mom a teacher?

Cofftea said

No, she’s going to school for her Masters.

Hblamo said

Ahhh, its all becoming clear now!

you have to actually ask the user reporting the issue for their state and ISP etc – but it can help you detmine if spint is having an issue and everyone else i not

(i work in ecommerce for a living)

also having friends (steepster) to check it out and be willing to report back is always handy for testing :)
