Many people sell their homemade crafts and masterpieces on Etsy. They also sell vintage clothing and other items, and I know there are several individuals who make quite a good living this way. But the people who become successful by selling their wares didn’t start off with a bang. They all had a personal square one, and while there’s no guarantee or sure-fire to make loads of money, there are a few tips that everybody has to abide by. Here’s a few simple ways to make sure you’re getting the best out of your Etsy shop
- Sell Quality Products – Make sure that what you’re selling isn’t junk. You need to be able to sew well, craft well, create well…you get the point. Everyone can create beautiful pieces when they create what they love, so don’t make yourself craft or sew things that you don’t like or appreciate. Make and sell what you love, and you’ll find yourself putting forth the effort that it takes to make quality products.
- Invest in High-Quality Photography – The type of pictures you take of your product has a lot to do with whether or not they’ll be bought. You can have a wonderful product, but if you take terrible pictures of it, no one will purchase it. Make sure the area is well-lit, clean, and not distracting. If you’ve got many other items next to the one you’re selling, you might not even be able to distinguish it! iPhones and most digital cameras take decent enough photos for this purpose.
- Categorize Appropriately – If you’re making clothing but list it as a different product, say, “outdoor material,” or something random, you’ll never get found! Make sure to list your products correctly.
- Utilize Keywords and Titles. Make sure you title a product correctly. Don’t include words that aren’t completely relevant; only include ones that are. If you’ve got a pair of red snakeskin shorts, list them as such. You might include the fit, such as, “High-waisted, red, python-print shorts.”
- Add Products Consistently. If you only have one product available, the chances are that you’re not going to be turned up on searches quite as frequently. A full shop will help you sell more items.
