tell, tell me, do... [Nov. 16th, 2005|02:54 pm]
[mood |curiouscurious]

So... alla you Etsy people... how are you doing there with sales? I wish there was a way to track sales and see what sells vs. what doesn't move. It's gotten so big and there is SOOO much to look at it would seem way too easy to get lost in the crowd. I guess once something sells it's off the site so you can't see it anymore? Do you seem to get sales mostly from your own advertising efforts or do people seem to search and find your stuff? I love browsing there but I seem to do it so randomly, I think I'm missing more than I'm seeing.

I'm anxious to see what others say about this as well.

For me, I sold 2 items within days of listing them and then I noticed the "viewed" count went up during the first week or so after listing, then after that... nothing.

My new thinking is to list one thing a week and see if that helps.. that way something of mine is always on the "new" section on the front page.

I only sold one thing and it was someone from my friends list, but my shop has only been up a few weeks. It has brought in some wholesale requests though... If you list Qnty. 1 then yers once it's sold it not longer gets listed for sale but you can see the item under your accont. I hear lots of complaints of no sales from people though. I've only bought 1 thing and I tend to look up by search term not browsing...

see, that is the problem with trying to get away from ebay. people all complain and want to leave, but unfortunately, its where everyone shops. It NEVER occurs to me to look at amaon auction for instance... I will be interested in peopl's answers too.

i haven't sold a single thing there, so far, and i've had it up since right after Katrina. i think you REALLY have to promote your shop there for it to work.
