I became serious about my etsy store after losing my day job. At one time I thought I’d make jewelry but quickly realized I’m a 2D artist! Oil painter and printmaker. I decided printmaking was the best medium for my etsy store!
I feel like I’ve learned a lot about how to photograph 2D work, and how to write descriptions that are interesting to potential buyer. I also feel like I have a lot to learn! The most important thing I’ve learned is not to devalue my product or my time!
My advice for new sellers would be to first focus on your product. Is it something that you are proud of and can stand behind? Have you worked out all the kinks? Next is brand identity! It should ooze from everything you have your store name one! I’m still working on the myself!
