I opened my online store on August 12. Started uploading froogle feeds on August 13. Ran my first Adwords ad yesterday, Aug 31. And Today, Sep 1, I got my first sale! Whooooot! I made $6.50 profit on it. Now to make more & better designs and do a lot more advertising and sell many more t-shirts! I was feeling really bummed out and grouchy yesterday. Business was looking dismal. But now I'm feeling better. BTW, I got two clicks from Adwords which cost me 20 cents each. I dunno if I got my sale from Adwords or Froogle. I don't have my site listed on any search engines or directories yet. One thing I've learned in this business, you either advertise or you die. No wonder the world is so full of advertising.
