I see different Amazon Store options like aStore etc. What is the best way to sell products I manufacture on Amazon? Has anyone had success selling on Etsy?

I have a store on my Facebook page but it does little to no business. My website is where I do 95+% of my sales (eBay would account for most of the remaining sales). I would like to expand my sales reach to other areas, such as Amazon, but don't want to spend a bunch of time and effort only to realize little benefit.

I am just wondering what experiences others have had on other websites. Facebook and Twitter have been useless to me, so I'm skeptical about Pinterest because of my failures on the other "Social Media" sites.

I've heard some decent success stories from Amazon and Etsy. I'm wondering if any members here have had success with those two and is there a best way to go about getting your products listed and noticed there?

Also, are there any other websites where you've had success, other than your own website?

Jennifer - I don't know much about selling on amazon, and I know nothing about etsy.  A friend of mine loves etsy, although if the product is suitable for amazon then it probably isn't suitable for etsy.

Are you saying that you are already selling your products on your store and you want to expand your distribution?
