Hello! I just recently reopened my etsy shop. I am pretty happy with photography. It is something I have continued to work on and improve. Now Im wondering if I have overlooked other element. Particularly do my descriptions leave something to be desired? If so what? Am I missing something in my tags? Is my profile professional enough while still being personable? And most importantly (to me at least) what do you think of my products. Obviously I like them, but that is pretty much all Im going on. I am having trouble defining my target market. I describe my work at bright, colorful and fun. I know Im asking a lot, but any help with my many questions is much appreciated.

Your etsy is great! Your banner leaves something to be desired. It isn't anything really special, unlike your awesome items!

Oh thanks! I didn't even think of my banner...but now that you mention it, it really doesn't reflect my shop.

Phasing out my swaps for now. I'll swap again later!

Your shop looks good.  I think to make your stitch markers stand out from others, you might create a neat cardstock with holes and your logo on which to sell them, such as the ones seen on a rack in a jewelry store.  Also, you'll want to branch out into the fashionable and trendy beads that are hot sellers.   Keep selling the ones you have now, just have more of a variety of styles from which to choose. (I.E., word beads, lampwork beads created by artists, pewter or silver theme charms, etc.)

If they are on the nicely-made cardstock holders, people will be more apt to buy them as gifts for their yarning friends!

Humbly yours,

i love the pictures and the colours you have used in your jewelry is vibrant and appealing.

My comment would be pretty much the same. You banner is of much lower resolution and appears especially rough compared to your awesome product photos.

Your descriptions are indepth too so plety of info there. Might want to start with a snap shot of the info. Sometime's i'm too lazy to read if i see a paragraph of writing, simply because that's pretty much what i do all day...

apart from that, everything looks awesome.

I would love a critique also. I opened my shop last week, no sales yet. Tell me what you think. Anything I could fix?

I think you got some great advice so I won't say anything there.  But I did want to mention that your banner is lovely.

Thank you everyone for the advice and comments. I'll be sure to put it to good use so my shop will be better.

I've got to say that my entire shop needs some love.  I get views and hearts but it hasn't been translating into sales yet.  If anyone has any suggestions please let me know!  I personally love all my stuff, but I wouldn't make any money if I kept it all...   Cheesy

Okay everyone - I have several new banners to choose from, would you mind giving me your feedback? Smiley

Banner 1

Banner 2

Banner 3

Thoughts?  Banner 2 nearly exactly matches my business cards, without the contact info, etc.  But, they all appeal to me, so I'm trying to decide which looks better to others! Cheesy

Thanks again for this thread, it's very valuable to us Etsyians!

I like the third one. It's informative but the squares add a subtle attractive detail.

See my website for my products (will post to anywhere in UK at cost of postage and packaging). It is a little out of date due to a server crash. Please email me if you want a custom order
