Hello Craftster Community,
I have a shop on etsy and things since the beginning of the year have just tanked. I have gotten wonderful reviews from those who have bought from me. I am also getting a ton of traffic everyday. I have read the books and I'm doing everything I am supposed to be including the "The Heavy Seven"
1. Use a banner
2. Fill out your profile.
3. Have a clear shop policy
4. Use all 5 photos
5. Use all 14 tags
6. Ship internationally
7. Include measurements
So what I'm asking here is not necessarily if I'm going in the right direction as far as getting the shop up and working and having the basic necessities, but I need some eyes to take a look at this shop and tell me if the photos seem off, is the text too wordy, are prices wonky, or is the theme of my shop disjointed. It could be any of these things or it could be any number of other things.
I have asked family and friends to look am my site and of course all they say is, "It looks great, you have wonderful content". They are so supportive, but unfortunately they don't know much in the way of selling handmade wares. The long and the short of it, I need some eyes and minds in the trade who know how the crafting community works to look at my shop and give me some feedback. Or even people who are into buying handmade look at this and tell me your thoughts.
I really need some candid and honest feedback. I really want this to work and I am stuck on what I should do. Please help.
