    O.k... so, like, I'm sitting here waiting for my stats to be updated, and I started looking at the stuff that has been ordered off our sites since December 1st.

    Don't these people have any taste whatsoever?

    I almost felt like giving back the commissions that we took on a few of the items.

    Almost.

    I've decided to re-vamp my definition of 'taste', and was wondering if anyone had any pointers... I mean, if I'm gonna be paid to flog this stuff, I need a better grasp of what 'taste' is.

    Thanks. [img]/infopop/emoticons/icon_smile.gif[/img]

    one mans garbage is another mans treasure

    i used to wheel and deal in the real world and as far as i could see it was sometimes mainstream stuff that sold, sometimes stuff that was nice (like me, buy me) but by far, and i mean F--A--R, the best sellers where things that people need

    For the purposes of selling:

    Taste= What is selling

    Gauche= What's NOT selling!

    Remember the line, Beauty is in the Eye of the Commission Check!

    Other than sales, things that match, aren't too loud, and don't make the person look like they belong at a masquerade party would fit my definition.

    This also applies to non-clothing items!

    But if you see the balance rise for some ugly piece of merchandise, so? Take the money...you put the item on your site, obviously you didn't think it was so bad as to refuse to promote it!

    Austin--products people THINK they need also do well... And totally unneccesary stuff can do REALLY WELL! If, of course, you hit the unneccesary stuff that a lot of people happen to want (as in, things that are "in"), that is.

    Beauty is in the Eye of the Commission Check! leader, that should be your sig

    taste is not an issue with me and never has been, if it sells, sell it!

    >products people THINK they need also do well

    yes i definitely agree

    >things that are "in"

    personally i dont bother with say, "harry potter" that would go in my "mainstream" catagory, i rate the mainstream and "like me, buy me" products at about 25% or less of the value of "i need" or "think i need" products

    i think thats groovy, i would buy it, i used to have a similar one in the 70,s, i did buy one a couple of years ago from a usedgoods trader and it was a sad day when my kitty knocked it off the shelf and broke it, its a nostalga trip, i really like it, no kidding, if it was something that i needed though i would "buy now!" through your link

    "things that match, aren't too loud, and don't make the person look like they belong at a masquerade party would fit my definition.(of taste)"

    Was that an anti-Pagan remark?
