I'm beginning to get a little frustrated with my Etsy shop. I'm really beginning to question whether my items are good enough to sell.
I think they are, and I think the quality shows in my pictures, yet I'm having a very hard time selling very much. I list (or renew) pretty regularly so I'm pretty sure my items generally stay in the first few pages of the categories. I promote pretty regularly in the forums, yet I rarely get much notice. And I also promote outside of Etsy itself too.
I have asked for shop critiques on a couple of occasions....and only the first time, did my request even get noticed. Maybe it's a case of "if you don't have anything nice to say, say nothing at all"....so folks don't want to respond. I also tried asking for mentoring help, and unfortunately the mentor I chose wrote back that they were too busy to help me. It's so hard to find a mentor that has similar items that can honestly help.
So.....be honest.....are my items just crud? Are my prices way out of whack? I'm running a sale right now and still can't seem to sell anything. I'm planning to use the upcoming Etsy down-time this weekend to re-evaluate what I should try and sell...and my shop set-up....so any input would be greatly appreciated. Thanks.http://coganscreations.etsy.com/
