Would this interest you....and of course, Marketing tips

I know I'm not the first to make something like this.... I think my grandmother would call these added pieces "skirts". I was playing with the idea of introducing a few of these designs I would call "Impact" pieces. They fit neatly over any stud earring taking you from a business daytime look to a more dramatic night time look. Would you be inclined to use them? I’m looking for feedback. To those of you in my jewelry making eSMArts team, a special question for you.... Would you consider the purchase a tutorial on how to make these earrings? Is this something I should develop? I'm interested in your ideas and feedback! Thanks in advance.

Marketing tip for tonight:
Handout your business cards with a little pizzazz. Take a small zip lock baggy (snack sizes work well) with your Business Card or a flyer, a piece of candy such as hard candy or a lollipop, discount coupon is optional and a "small gift". I use my leftover stones that don't have a home and make up cell phone lanyards. I hand these out to the bank tellers, retail cashiers, even at my son's sport events. Keep a stash of them in the car, this makes it really easy as you go through any drive thru to pass them out!

It's a very interesting idea. I don't do wirework however if I did I would probably be interested in putting together a few of them and seeing if the customers are attracted to them.
Thanks for the marketing tips, one needs to be fairly forward to do these things and that's definitely something I need to work on.

The skirts are cute. Would I personally buy the tutorial? not likely. I can usually replicate things just by looking at the design. Would this tutorial sell? Yes, - practically any tutorial will sell so hey go for it!

My advice would be to add a bit more unique spin to the design, or an increased level of difficulty - something to make it harder to figure out just by looking at it. Then if it's a good looking style the tutorials will sell well.

I enjoy your daily marketing tips. And no, I haven't made up give-aways, freebies or promotional tools. This should be made a team design challenge, eh? :) -AnnaLee
