I guess my efforts paid off a little bit because getting your rank to improve is difficult without lots of sales. Honestly, the ranking system is a good idea; it got me to see my store needed improvement. If the numbers had not been introduced maybe I would have fewer sales, it's hard to tell so early on though what will happen. I am open to making changes where needed if it helps me have better designs available.
Business is not really my forte but I am learning a little of what it takes to market my designs, including what people are interested in. I will pay attention to what people have bought and what has gone ignored. If I were more business minded I likely would have clued in quicker than over two years after opening my shop! My other shop on Zazzle (NewAgeInspiration) is still a 4 but I did not start focusing on it until I had finished my LovelyDesigns4U shop so hopefully it will improve in rank too.
Thanks for reading.
