I had my first Etsy sale in 5 months the other day. It was encouraging to know that people are still somehow finding me in the sea of Etsy sellers. I was getting so discouraged that I had been considering closing up shop and just focusing on craft shows but I do think it's important to have some on-line presence. If nothing else it's like a portfolio of your work to direct people. I'm still seriously looking at other options like Artfire and expanding my 1000 Market's shop as it continues to grow.
I have literally hundreds of scarves in my inventory that are unphotographed and unlisted. I really need to get my butt in gear and take pictures the next 2 weekends. After that I'm going to be tagging my inventory and it's so much harder to get decent pictures once there is a price tag getting in the way. A friend gave me a very nice tripod that he wasn't using so that should help. I'm also going to get Kai to help me since I think having 2 sets of hands will make it go much faster. Having to set the shot up and style it takes so much time and going back and forth gets tiring. Hopefully the effort will be worth it in Fall sales.
