List of Best Etsy Advice For Sellers: How to Succeed on Etsy

Pin It

This post was inspired by a Facebook Etsy friend who was discouraged because she just hasn't been getting sales or views lately. 

Have you been having a hard time with your Etsy shop as well? Feeling discouraged because you just aren't getting the sales you're wishing for? Are you wondering what you're doing wrong? 

Follow this list of the best Etsy advice on how to succeed on Etsy that I've received over the past year and you might start to see the change you've been hoping for. It has worked for me, though I'm still working on getting both my shops to the level I want.  (It's written with Etsy in mind, but can be applied to many other platforms as well.)

1- Work on your photos!

Crisp, white backgrounds are best. I can do this for you from your existing photos, I charge 3-5$ per picture, depending on the complexity. This is a very small investment, especially if it's for a renewable listing!  Pictures and your description are the only things potential customers can gauge your product with, so a good picture and cohesive, pleasing ensemble view of the shop is an absolute must. 

2- Work on your tags!

They should repeat words in your title and description. Two to three word tags are best. Uninspired? Look at other listings that are showing up on first page for tag ideas, or ask your fans on Facebook how they would describe your item. (A good way to boost engagement too!)

3-Grow your social media networks!

This is another area I can help you with.  People can't buy what they've never seen, so building a strong social media network on key platforms is an absolute must to get your product the exposure it deserves. 

4-Add more listings!

The more listings you have, the more keywords and therefore the more chances you have of showing up in searches. Don't use the same ones over and over again, vary your keywords by using the advice above. Of course, some reuses are inevitable, a cushion cover is a cushion cover after all!
