Today is my 157th day on etsy and I have finally hit the 2000 sale mark. I know there are people with far more experience than I on etsy, but I felt it was worth sharing a few tidbits of my own that may help others in their etsy business. I sell jewelry supplies, so i realize that the volume of business will be different for handmade goods, but these thoughts are good for all etsy businesses. Some of these ideas you hear all the time, but this is because they do work and others well I go against the group on abit, so take them as you may and hopefully you will find something that helps you in some way
- List new items…List lots of new items! If its not in your store you cant sell it. If you only have a few items then you will only have a few sales. I currently have over 700 items for sale and I need more! I want to have over 1000 items for sale very soon. I continue to try and try to get to this 1000 item mark, but it seems every time I get close I sell out of several items, and of course Im not complaining about sales, but am continually striving to be able to keep 1000 items for sale in my shop. If you sell handmade items I would strive to have a minimum of 100 items in your shop, if you already have that many try to get to 200, etc. Continually add new merchandise to your shop, this gets you to the top of the searches and gives your customers more options
- Relist items as soon as they sale…that is of course if you have another one or can make another one…if you sell one of a kind, but can make something similar, make it and list it
- Renew if you have nothing new to list and no sales to relist. I always have new items to list and relist my sold item. I list/relist 20-50 items every single day. If I happen to only have a few new items or items to relist then and only then will I renew…I much prefer to list new items and relist sold items only. Make sure that you are listing/relisting/renewing everyday, this way you dont get buried
