Topic: I can't get enough traffic on the Shops/services board

I've been trying to run a small Service in the shops and Services Board. I had an initial wave of eyes on it but now it's slowed to an absolute crawl. I don't have new villager orders to scan amiibo cards to kick out existing villagers for trades. I'm just cycling random villagers because I'm getting one hit a week now if I'm lucky, yet there are 6-8 threads a day in the AC:NH trading board of people looking to buy a villager.

Is there anything I can do within ACC rules to get people's attention? I'm trading villagers at 30k bells which is basically pocket change compared to going Nookazon prices. In 2-3 hours of bug catching or Fishing you could have 30k in your wallet but I feel like I can't catch enough attention because of how hidden the shops and services board is.

I've recently been trying to get active in filling trades in the trading board to get people's attention that I have a Service thread but I have barely seen any fruit from this effort either. Is there any advice or suggestions you can offer? Is it possible to place the shops and Services Board in a way so people realize it even exists? Does the website analytics show anything about users who navigate to the shops and services link like percentage of the website traffic or trading board traffic who actually go to the shops and services board?

I believe the biggest problem is that people don’t look on the Shops and Services board. People just post what they want and expect the service to come to them. Most of the threads on the trading board are people looking for items or villagers.

You could advertise in your signature, which I see you are currently doing.

You can also create a message inviting people to order! Just ensure they are not on the Do Not Contact list

"You can also create a message inviting people to order! Just ensure they are not on the Do Not Contact list"

Do you mean a group PT message? Or are you suggesting something else?
