I've been a member of Bonanzle since August of 2008. It was a great site when I first joined but lately I have been disappointed in the direction it's taking.
There are more and more forum games being developed and for me that is just NOT the direction I want a selling site I'm a member of, to go.
I was also greatly disappointed to learn that the million dollar investment that the site recently got awarded was not going to be used for advertising. That was, in my opinion, a huge mistake by the management of the site.
Internet sites need targeted advertising to get their name "out there". How do you think Ebay got themselves to be a household name?
It wasn't JUST by their sellers going out and beating the "cyber sidewalks". No, it was through advertising and getting their name recognized world wide.
I'm sticking with Bonanzle for now, but am going to explore other options. I didn't have much luck at Ecrater, and a couple of other sites. Most of my merchandise I can't sell at Etsy as it's not hand made or craft supplies but I am starting to make some items that are hand made for babies and Toddlers and am most likely NOT going to list them on Bonanzle. They will go to Etsy as they will be hand made and Etsy seems to be a better place to sell that kind of stuff.
It's to bad as I've put a LOT of effort into Bonanzle and trying to get my store "out there". Actually I have done a pretty good job doing that, but the buyers are just not there. And to many stupid games in the forums for anyone that is a serious seller.
