Set Your Holiday Etsy Sales Goal

Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine

Ambition is a dream with a V8 engine | by : GratitudeJewelry

Setting goals and trying to met them should be apart of your daily business.   For me November and December are my two best months out of the year.  Looking back at December 2009, I averaged over 4 sales per day.  My goal is to double that number!

Goals written are dreams achieved:  There is something to writing down your goals.  When you use a pen or pencil, you can touch and smell it and you are turning a thought into a physical object.

Goal writing tips:

1. Stay positive.  The more positive your goals are the better.   Work for what you want to acheive in your Etsy shop, not for what you want to leave behind.   For example ” I didn’t make enough sales last month, I have to improve my sale” .  How about “This month will be my best sales month to date”.  Don’t remind yourself about what you didn’t accomplish.  Stay positive!

2.  Detail, Details Details.  When writing your goals for your Etsy shop use as much detail as you can.  “I will sell 250 items in the month of December.”  “This holiday season I will design a new line of jewelry trees.” The more detailed you become with your goals, the more focused you can get.  You will be able to drive your focus toward your goals and reach them!

3.  Write – Rewrite – Tweet – Share – Blog . The more you write and rewrite your goals the better you will remember and work on your goals.   Keep your goals in the front of your mind, the tip of your tounge, and the “palm of your hand”.  Why not Tweet about your goals, or write a blog post

Here is a quick poll to remind yourself that you need to have goals!  Pick your number wisely and strive to reach and pass it!  This poll is a great way to remind yourself of your holiday sales goal – bookmark this page… Tweet… Share it on Facebook …. or do whatever you have to do to remind yourself what number of sales you set out to reach!!  Good luck!

  1. Great reminder about not just setting goals, but ones which are realistic and well thought out!

  2. Thanks for the reminder! Don’t focus on the past, but on the future!

  3. Thanks for this great post! Everyone needs a push in the positive direction sometimes. I decided to shoot high and go for over 100 sales! Aaahhh!! I better get to work! Perhaps, I’m being a little too ambitious…

    • I have the same goal as you, Alissa, and am starting to feel the same way! LOL I’m so glad I’m not the only one feeling like the gun is about to go off at the starting block?! ;-D
