Hot or Not?

I’m learning that just because I think my product is great doesn’t mean others will. Some of my favorite jewelry designs which I assumed would sell ‘instantly’ didn’t sell at all. I found it very helpful to look up Etsy shops selling similar products and see how they are selling. It was a good exercise in price and product comparison. Taking a look at what we have in common and what is different or unique to each shop. I have sold quite a few items, but it is taking some time for people to “find me”. I’m starting a new marketing approach by: 
  •  Handing out business cards
  • Making fliers and posting them wherever I can
  • Networking on Facebook and Twitter
  • Listing or relisting at least one product each day
  • Giving my jewelry as gifts and donations, with my business card
  • Posting more often about my store/designs on this blog
Etsy is a great place for selling your handmade products and it is a wonderful way to make money from home doing something you enjoy.
