Rudy Gelton of Cambridge, Massachusetts writes:
“The line of Alluring Items With Asian Influences that I am assembling consists of home decor goods, gifts and garments from the Far East to which the ladies who have provided me with marketing input have had overwhelmingly positive reactions.
“Also, all of the friends, relatives and associates to whom I have given various items as gifts have been overjoyed. But a decent percentage of these women admitted they would not necessarily have bought the items for themselves.
“You can see the website. However, I want to emphasize that at this point, it’s primarily a marketing vehicle that I’m using to gauge the appeal of various items and test prices. It’s an efficient and effective way for me to allow interested parties to view the goods and provide me with their input/feedback. So your Hounds should not, at this point, expect to see a slick ecommerce site.
“I’m wondering if your Hounds have any good ideas as to how to publicize the line or particular articles in a way that would bring the goods specifically to the attention of men in need of nice, interesting gift items to present to the ladies in their lives?”
