I had been thinking about opening an Etsy shop for a while and after going to a few craft fairs and selling next to nothing!!! I decided to go for it. It was hard work I’m not going to lie but hopefully it will pay off. I’ve managed to list 50 items with an average of 3 photos on each- WOW thats a lot of photos!!! I’ve tried to describe as accuretely as possible including measurements, colours, how the item is used etc. In my opinion, I think the key to Etsy is clear photo’s and lots of them and NETWORKING!! I don’t think any craft business would work without networking!! I try and use all the social networking platforms, but I’m still getting used to most of them!!!
This morning when I woke up; I checked my phone (as you do) and it said 1 new order- I thought I was seeing things!!! I thought it would be about 6 weeks or maybe more before I would get an order, it just shows the bar work really does pay off. To top it off the lady who ordered from me only lives 5 minutes away and because I was happy to refund the postage, she ordered something else!!!
So to say today has been a good crafting day is an understatement!!!!
