Time to redo my shop
I've not really thinking about stopped working on my shop. First it was the excuse that I couldn't sell, then it was that we were busy vacationing( does that even make sense? Busy vacationing?? Thats an oxymoron)
Then there is the excuse that we were moving, that its too hot and yada yada yada.
But this has really helped me as I'm now going into redoing mode.
One way for certain that does not work is listing and listing and not working the shop. I left my shop open but didnt promote and chat. My sales and views went D!O!W!N!!!
So what I've done is gone through my entire inventory of both shops and individually charted how they sell, pros, cons and that sort of thing. By the end of this, I'll know just what was a waste of time, what needs to be tweaked. I'll bunch up the bad inventory and sell of to just make revenue.
Also this week, I'll be testing how exactly good Etsy forums are to how they say they are. I'm going to be in the forums like crazy this week , every day to see if I get more views and sales by doing just that. Starting a biz is not easy but hopefully my experiment will help me to see where I am wasting my time.
So wish me luck , and hopefully I can come up with some great data:)
