Wondering what all the hype is about Etsy! A few years ago I had some things listed but never had any luck – just had to keep paying to keep them listed. I have to admit that I didn’t “work” at my Etsy sales and have since learned there is quite a support system out there, with real live people who have been very successful. I’m giving it another try … getting my photos ready, the physical descriptions, material lists, etc. and feeling like I don’t want them to sell so quickly because it takes so much time to post just one item. Everything I make is one of a kind, so it’s back to the drawing board if something sells. At least, “back to the drawing board” will be more of an incentive to work if something does sell, I suppose! My big question is “do I want to sell, or do I want to create?” I really just like design and production, but I have to support my habit, so here I go again, dear Etsy.
Getting Etsy Ready
One thought on “Getting Etsy Ready”
Best of luck to you. Selling just isn’t… something, fun, fulfilling,… something. It is, however, one way to express your love for what has been created. I have thought about Etsy and like models but I think if I am going to ever be successful at selling it is going to be in person.
