    Hello every friends!

    I have done caps&hats business for another company for more than 3 years.
    I have much experience, now i have my own company.
    But my business it seems not good.
    Noboday know my company;
    Nobody contact my to ask caps;
    I have registered some free B2B websites, but has not good feedback.
    At present, i donot want to pay more investment on the paid B2B websites.
    I am thinking to find more professional caps&hats B2b website or trade website or forum i can go .
    Anyone know it and kindly introduce them to me?
    No matter the forum in your country or the famous trade website in your country , just you think it is useful to my caps&hats business,
    all can introduce me.

    Thanks..

    Amy

    How about the company you were working for before, how were they selling caps and hats and were sales good? I fo so you should try to contact same customers or resellers and try to steal them some business, of course also try to expand from there and get new customers

    Hi Dear Fergal,

    I am very sorry to reply you so lately.
    How time flies, 1 year has been past from i posted untill now.
    http://www.ytcheadwear.com
    This is my compan's website.
    And you know we are the manufacturer of caps, we do not make wholesale or retail.
    As usual :
    step 1 : looking for clients; or some clients contact us initiativly
    step 2: ask client all the details, which style cap he will order? how many pcs he will order? what is the color of the cap? Is there any logo he want to make? How to make this logo? by printing or embroidery? If has logo, we need the design.
    step 3: when we know these information, i will make quotation to him
    step 4: wait whether he can accept our price or have any questions
    step 5: if he like our price, he will pay money to us in advance
    step 6: when we got all the money or the deposit we start to produce
    step 7: when we finish the production, we will make the dlievery by sea or by air or by express.
    step 8: then this order is finished.
    Hope to my reply is satisfied with you.
    any question pls ask me, thanks for you help. i need your help always.

    One of the simplest things I do to generate web based sales is to go to top blogs within the niche and ask them to review my service. Many won't respond but those who do will prove invaluable as they have a large reader base who are interested in what one of their favourite blogs writes about.

    In your case go to quirky fashion blogs and other fashion blogs maybe there are some focused specifically on hats. Then perhaps you could send them a couple of hats to review and see what they think. I don't know if it'll work for products but it's worked for me when I'm trying to market my services.
