The first thing is for you to look to your left - I have some lenses for sell for only $10. I made a new lens with an idea about flipping it a couple of weeks ago and listed it along with some old lenses that are in need of some tlc or I developed them meaning them to become part of a group of lenses and stopped at one! I've already sold a few of them, but keep an eye on what's on offer in case you see any that you 'must' have!
If anyone is interested in getting a lens custom built for them then just contact me and I'll be only too happy to talk to you about it - the price will depend on what you're after.
Now you're probably thinking this post says Halloween and Christmas lenses when are we going to talk about them? This time, last year, I started building Halloween lenses as I really didn't have much in the way of Halloween lenses before that - last October I received 4 figures from those lenses. It is definitely the time to make a start if you haven't already. I found I was more productive when I actually planned out exactly what type of lenses I wanted to make (there were only 2 that weren't made, so I was very happy).
I also started brushing up and increasing my Christmas lenses in July last year and Christmas is always very profitable for me.
I look at it by thinking when do the shops start showing displays and getting people thinking about the holiday season - then I figure that they've probably placed their orders a month beforehand. I know the internet is a little different to shops, but the planning side is definitely one that I think can be emulated well.
I want people to start seeing Halloween decorations or costumes around and then search online to land on my sites! The same with Christmas. October, November and December aka the last quarter of the year is traditionally the one that sees the most online sales of any other time of the year and I want us all to cash in on that.
