I've honestly found twitter seriously useful and I never thought I'd say that. Didn't get much traffic through my FB page so hopped on over to tweet and if you balance the right amount of re-tweet craft bots and people you can get your stuff constantly being pushed out there. Not saying it's worked miracles, I've only had 1 sale via Etsy since I opened 5 days ago but I'm starting to make friends and get a possible response and that I think is the first way foward!

Plus like someone said, tag tag tag! Haha.

I must be doing something wrong.  I haven't had a single sale in months...

Is my stuff any good?

They are lovely. I've not started Etsying yet but I would say maybe try using labels like 'vintage' or 'kitsch' for button earrings - which I totally adore, or 'emo' for some of things like the black and pink.

There is also an app in the community bit somewhere for testing which pictures are more effective. Perhaps set them in a nice montage with eye-catching items in a similar style. I would also make sure they're all the same way up.

Just ideas. x

I received my first sale 2 months after opening my shop! I have put a lot of time and effort into my shop and await more sales... Smiley

Here are 3 good tips for selling on Etsy:

1) Participate in the Etsy Community. It's great for promoting your shop and getting advice.
2) Focus on your target market.
3) SEO. (Search Engine Optimization) Tag your items accurately and include lots of adjectives and good info in your descriptions. It'll help you get found more easily in searches.
