How to get noticed....

Etsy is full of jewelry sellers, me being one of them. I have had my Etsy shop since the very end of December and I have only had three sales. My last sale was in Febuary. I have done a lot of promoting and feel like I am out of ideas! I just can find "the key" to becoming super successful on Etsy?! Every once in awhile I come across a shop that has have over 10,000 sales and I just can believe it! Once I saw a shop that had a little over 40,000 sales! That just about blew my mind away! It left me wondering what did they have that I didn't? I mean, I have good pictures, tags, descriptions, titles etc. all the things Etsy says to do! But what am I missing?!There has to be something I just am not doing! I mean how do these peoples little businesses just explode over night into a huge profit?! Any ideas of what I could do better? What do you think about this subject matter? What is your best promoting tool?

  1. Hi there, just found your blog through the esty team forums..I feel your pain about selling jewelry on etsy. The one thing that has worked for me is re-listing several items a day, I usually start making sales when I'm doing that, or listing new items. All of the really great sellers say the best way to get sales is to promote outside of etsy. I just haven't had a lot of time to commit to it. Your blog is great and so is your jewelry, hang in there!

  2. Thank you! Those are some great tips! I know, it is hard to find the time and energy to commit to promoting our Etsy shops outside of Etsy. It is also hard to find a creative way to do so!
