300 Etsy sales and I still don’t know what I’m doing!
Posted by Jo @ Rainbow of Crazy
Via my thread on Etsy…
I wrote one of those “things I learned at 100 sales!” posts back in the day. But now at 300, I don’t know how helpful I’m going to be here because I can proudly say that I still have NO idea what I’m doing!
I’m still trying to improve on pictures. I’m still trying to work on titles, tags and descriptions. I’m terribly unsuccessful with social media. I’m still trying to see what’s selling and what’s not worth working on anymore. I’m still figuring out trends: internet trends, what people are looking for, what might be trending in my shop, what trends to follow, what direction to go in. I’m still trying to find my niche. My views are still all over the place and I still stare at my shop stats religiously and still try to make sense of the data. I’m not quite sure how to be more efficient. I still don’t really have a proper pricing formula. Some days I stare at my shop and have no clue what to work on next. I’m definitely not making a living off of Etsy!
But I think I’m doing something right so far.. I just have to figure out what that is. lol. I guess at this point, my best advice is to keep on trying and listen to advice when given. I see so many shop owners complaining about lack of sales, and then completely ignore all of the amazingly helpful advice that is given. Listen, learn, and improve.
And seriously. Keep working on that SEO. Because that is definitely one thing that’s been helping me get found. That, and probably a lot of luck. lol.
