Tuesday's Tools - Help with Etsy Sales


We all want to be successful right? Sure some are just on Etsy because they just want to share their craft or collectibles. Others want to see sales and a cash flow. How do you do that? What is the secret?


I have done some research and found that several people that “know” all have their own opinion which I thought great, how does this help me? Here is what I have learned….no I am not a Successful Etsy Seller yet BUT I am working on it.

 
Tips that almost all of the Pros have common ground.

1. Good Photos

2. Description

3. Tags

4. Network

5. List often

6. Advertise

Now with all of this said we still have to work out our own plan. We are individuals with different shops and goals. What works for me may not work for you, however the above list is a consistent list with all those that are successful.

Things that you should do each week or month.
1. Have goals


2. Have a plan


3. Work to reach your goals

Here are some links for more reading about being successful.
