* Sell anything... at least two items, I suppose
* Make more buttons
* Find access to a decent digital camera until I can get my own
* Advertise

I literally started my store on the first. ^^;;

"Easy to Assemble" should be a warning label, not a selling point!

This March 14 marks my 1 year Etsyverisary!

My goals are:
1. Sell 23 items. I sold 19 in Jan, 21 in Feb, so I'm trying to do make a pattern. lol. (40 items this month in 27 orders!)
2. Pursue wholesale. (oh fine. I backed out of wholesale completely. I MISSED the sales/convos/feedback! So I dropped my prices back down. And it's picked up again. Phew! I LOVE my forgiving customers!!!)
3. Apply to a summer show. (not yet)
4. Balance my sewing, jewelry, and add something new to my shop. Something small and fun, like bottle cap magnets! (I've been doing more jewelry, and helping put together the fuzzy bunnys that my dd is knitting! I missed playing with stone and silver.  And I think dd bunnies count as small and fun and cuddly to boot!)

Good luck in March, everyone!

My goals are:

- sell 10 items (three more than in Feb)
- list at least 15 items, including 2 non-necklace items
- get a DBA
- market myself more
- get business cards

The goals so far are great, I think we can do it!

March marks my 6 month anniversary on etsy!  I don't have any set goals in mind, other than to keep making stuff and putting stuff in my shop on a regular basis!

i totally slacked last month... I wanted to add ten things and instead I didn't add anything. And we're already well into march so I'm gonna go easy on myself:

Add 5 items
Sell 3 items
seriously organize my craft stuff. i've been avoiding making jewelry because I can't find my pliers and don't wanna go buy new ones... they're probably just under something. bleh.

My goals are to have more sales (though I did just have my first sale!!), expand my Groovy Vinyl line, expand my Boneyard baubles line...spread the word about my jewelry through business cards and flyers, and get into at least one more boutique. I just got accepted into my first, a bead store/boutique in another town that does consignment-again, woohoo!

ok, so here's how i did:

i just opened my shop on tuesday, so march is my first full month!!!  my goals are:

sell at least 4 items
YES!! I sold 7!!!

list at least 1 new item per week
Yep!!  I'm guilty of OVER listing items if anything

advertise via my myspace page
Yep, somewhat: I've posted blogs w/ sildeshows every time I've listed items

advertise in some way via my parents' family website
Yes!  I had my dad put up a page from my section of the site w/ photos and an Etsy mini widget.

print up flyers or business cards to leave around town
Yes! I have the most adorable business cards made by my friend Nick (who also made my banner, the cards match my banner!)

All things considered, I think I've had a really good first month, and I'm having so much fun with it!!
