The problem with selling computer parts is the massive amount of competition online
secondly the website name needs to be something easy to remember that one is not
for some reason when i hear sentientcom i don't think computer parts lol.
i would get a link to your webpage and all the forums you go too and include it in yoru signiture with a little messege beside saying computer
accessories and more . so that way every forum you go too it will be advertised and people do read signitures at the bottoem of your posts . Sign up
for a # load of forums and you'll have to do it daily and just start chatting away about products , new ideas etc and have your signiture and links
ready for others to check out
start a news letter that people can sign up for , also i would start a contest on your website weekly that gives away some free stuff to attract more
check at www.liszt.com for mailing lists
advertise in your local paper , go to your local schools and see if you can sell bulk purchases . go to differnt places that use computers and see if
you can get bulk order discount sales. make business cards letter heads etc all with your info on it . Start handing it out . Make flyers stick them
up in various places . etc
price price price my good man. and your prices are just higher then average .
go online find free licence software/utilitiy/games etc and give away on your website . People will search for software for free and your website
will be one of them that hosts it .
start a comment section on the things your selling so people can leave comments on quality . Lots of people base there sale on other peoples onpinion
. Hopefully your products are good and you get good reviews
go to youtube find punks who demo products and maybe hook them up with samples and in return they advertise your website
its a tough market out there . it comes down to why should you get to be popular what makes you differnt from all the other guys ?
make custom computer cases and keep those on your front page , thats eye candy for computer lovers , the ones you have there now look BOOOORING
good luck solider
