Thanks for the information about the search terms. I knew they had done something with that but wasn't sure exactly what it was or what I needed to do. I did know that the number of views I was getting had gone way down. I'll set about changing my titles.

Thanks again!

I've been on Etsy for almost a year now, and I've only had a couple of sales. I am a full-time crafter, but I mostly sell face-to-face, so I'm not very fluent on Etsy yet. Would you please critique my Etsy page, and let me know what I can improve? Thanks!

I'm starting to feel a little discouraged. I opened the shop to try and pay off some credit card bills. I have made 3 sales so far and have done all the usual things. I'm not sure whats up. Somehow I'm not getting around. I get roughly 15-30 views a day and my Sona doll has the most! I guess I haven't quite found what my true talent is yet.

Ahaha thats funny that I had actually perused your shop on etsy and then I see you here. ^_^ When I was looking through I couldn't tell if your beads where actually melted or not- or if they were just set and waiting for a custom order. But I couldn't tell because there is only one picture. :/ Use all pictures, or at least say its only melted on one side.

The first thing to improve is your photos - many of them are quite dark. By themselves they look ok, but if one of your items were included in a treasury, it would stick out as being very dark. It is important to use all the photos. Show your frames with prints in them, hanging on a wall, a close up of the design, and maybe even a photo of the back to show what the hook looks like. Your jewelery could be modelled on someone. It is important to give measurements for items so people know exactly what they are getting. Your titles could use a bit of tweaking - Etsy puts most weight on the first words in the title, for instance Paper Corsage Gothic Rockabilly would work better.
Other than that, your items are quite cute, so good luck with the world of Etsy!

I thought I would try Etsy, my daughter has been bugging me about it.  She thinks it would be good if her boyfriend knew what it was.

I am not looking for a critique, the list in the first post is enough for me to do my own critique, and it is excellent advice.  I will take that to heart first then ask for suggestions later.

I did all the suggestions given to me and vamped up my store.  I'm getting a lot more traffic but still no sales.  Any suggestions?

to gain even more traffic (and potentially more sales) to your shop you might want to consider changing your shop title or shop announcement to something more descriptive of what you sell in your shop. if you type in SEO or search engine optimization in the etsy blog search you can find a ton of useful articles on this topic.

you have a good amount of items at very good prices, but you need to be a tad more descriptive in your item descriptions. include dimensions, materials that are used, care instructions, etc.

hope this helps you! if you feel up to it go ahead and give my shop a critique too:

I took a look at your shop. You have a lot of cute things but I really want to see more pictures. With only one it's pretty hard to gauge the size and structure of certain things. Know what I mean? More photos would make it awesome!
