I recently started my own fashion accessory store online a few months ago. To date, I have had only 3 sales, and those are all from people I know. I have no idea how to get more customers, I barely get any views on my websites. My boyfriend has some ideas on how to get more customers like selling in the park or at the mall, but we are having trouble seeing eye to eye on how to get started.

It's hard when I look on Instagram and people who are also selling fashion accessories post how they are sold out on the same day. It's very discouraging, I don't understand what I am doing wrong.

I am also a graphic designer and I have had little success selling my designs(I sell on Zazzle and other similar sites), I only sell a few a year. I love design and I love fashion but my lack of success in any field makes me consider giving up on both of them.

It's too hard. Give up. You've been at it like a few months. You've even tried a couple of things.

Entrepreneurship should be super easy. Should only take one try and a day or two to make millions of dollars. Just follow the step by step and collect checks. :)
........ Now that you are riled up, welcome to the forum. You are about to go on a great journey. Check out the Gold and Notable threads. Post an intro thread. Read until your eyes bleed.

Then roll up your sleeves and get to work! Have you read the books this forum centers around?

Once you have your feet under you, pick a direction and TAKE ACTION. Go fail a LOT. Post a progress thread and we'll come in and help. Tag me in it.

You have to take the first step! Get to it!

Is your boyfriend your business partner or are you the full 100% owner?

Benvenuto @Prznangel !!
Anche a me, ho iniziato un lavoro con mia madre (lei fa borse e bijoux che faccio, e dovrei vendere), ma siamo stati bloccati per due anni ... sì, possiamo vendere ai mercati ed i nostri amici, ma sono su internet.
