How To Get More Sales on Etsy Part 6 of 6

Thanks for sticking it out with me – we are finally on to our last post! I’ve learned a lot from these seasoned vintage sellers. Here are a few parting words of advice:

What are your top three tips for getting more customers on Etsy?

Stacey from Vintage Jane says “I have a lot of repeat costumers, so customer service is very important to me. I always ship out quickly, communicate often, and am always fair and kind. It also takes time to get your shop noticed, and list as many items as you can.

Laura from Peachy Chic Boutique gives this advice:
1. Choose items the market wants (make adjustments as you go).
2. Choose language for titles customers will search for to find that item.
3. Good pictures will get you into treasuries & more exposure.

Susan from Callooh Callay said “(1) have wonderful products, and do your research on how to present them and what key words to use; (2) take great pictures; (3) get out there and promote it in whatever way you choose (ads, blogs, treasuries, Twitter, etc.)--don't just expect people to find you.”

Finally, Cindy from Two Dog Vintage says:
1. Great descriptors in your tags and titles
2. Make sure the first photo - the one that shows up in the search listings - is a great photo.
3. Tenacity - you can't post three items and sit around for 4 months waiting for them sell. If you treat your shop like a business (show up every day and do the work to make it successful) it will be!

Chalkboard Painted Vase

I had a can of chalkboard paint lying around and I decided to make a little chalkboard paint vase.  I picked up this little gem from the thrift store for $1.99.  It’s pale green in color.  I like the dark black chalkboard paint against the light color of the vase. Who is Minnie? Minnie is my cute little grand-pup (on the right side of the doggie pic below). Who is Karl? He is the big golden retriever who lives behind us.  They bark at each other all the time – it’s so darn cute! I couldn’t get a good picture of Minnie and Karl together, so Lola had to do. Lola is the puppy my daughter fostered for 3 weeks – isn’t she super adorable? Seriously, super adorable!  Lola was about 6 weeks old in this picture and Minnie is 3. Minnie thought she was getting a sister....but Lola adopted out quickly.  Imagine that! Linking up with: Someday Crafts    

I Tried Insanity!

Picture Credit: OK, not the whole program, but I tried the first DVD :) I’ve always been into fitness. I’m a regular subscriber to the magazine called “Fitness” I have a YMCA membership and I have a small home gym in my basement. Just because you have access to all this stuff, doesn’t guarantee that you will work out though. I’m also a sucker for Infomercials. Last year around this time, I bought Zumba – and that craze lasted about a month! Luckily, I was able to re-sell it on EBay right before Christmas for $50, getting most of my original investment back. This brings me to my first fitness tip of the year – if you’re not sure you’ll like a new fitness craze, try to buy it used off EBay or Craig’s List. A few weeks ago, my husband purchased “Insanity” off Craig’s List for $45 and it was still in the shrink wrap (the guy told us that he recently found out he had

The Forum in Rome Italy

If you visit the Colosseum, you have to see the Forum – it’s literally right across the street. The forum known as the Forum Romanum looks like a disorderly collection of ruins and rock that can make the imagination run wild.  Just look around and try to imagine what it looked like all those years ago.  Remains of many buildings from different periods are visible.  The forum used to house temples, basilicas and arches.  The area is massive and is a must see site if you ever get a chance to visit Rome. The forum is “ one of the most important archaeological sites in the world ." Three thousand years ago, this valley, which was to become the future social and political center of one of the greatest empires of ancient times, was submerged in marshland.  By an incredible invention of engineering, a canal that is still in function to this very day, allowed for the drainage of the land. The area soon began to develop and by the end of the 7th century BC, it was home to many mark
