Model Horse Listing Rotations: Take 4

Round 1, Fight!

I’m starting to run out of 2013 and with my goal to at least break even this year, it’s time to get serious about my sales.

As a counter-weight, I’m also going to be posting the horses to other locations so I can test the various venues. Right now I know I’m doing Model Horse Blab, but I’m testing out some other ideas as well. (Facebook, Twitter, G+, Yahoo Groups, etc.) (more…)
