Hi everyone,

I need help to reach my daily goal of $100 SALES A DAY.
How can I do that?

I have a good selection of jewelries and other accessories. Tell me what I can make for you if it is not available at my shop. Do have any color suggestions on items that are already listed?

Sellers/ Etsy friends:
Some of us do this full time or part time. In my case, I’m a housewife that needed to make money. Also, I want to make enough sales to continue my hobby and create more beautiful jewelries. Do you have any suggestions to boost my sales? Do you have a daily goal too to keep up with your shop? Tell me your story.

Thanks everyone!!!

If I made $10 a day, I'd be quite pleased :P I'm new, so I don't have any suggestions aside from the ones in the links everyone posts when people ask for help incrasing their sales. Good luck!

You have very nice things! Have you tried getting your jewelry into local boutiques? I work from home as well with a goal of $200 a day. I generally exceed that, which I'm so grateful for, but even still, you never know what tomorrow will bring. It's always good to have a backup plan (for me it's a part time night job which I happen to love, so it works out fine!)

To help boost sales you could try custom etsy car decals, available in my shop.

Good luck :)

$300 a day is roughly 3000 a month and over 30K a year. That is quite a bit of money for a hobby. How long have you been selling jewelry? How much outside promotion are you planning on doing. That is a pretty lofty goal and you are going to find that the majority of Etsy sellers do not make that much.

Don't put all your eggs in one basket.

Have a jewelry show at a friends house

Do a show at a local school or church

Ask a friend to put you in touch with her HR department to see if you can do a lunch hour trunk show

Promote online

That should get you started. Good luck, online selling is hard to do. I know many jewelry sellers do a lot better in person.

Congratulations! $200/day = $72,000/year. That's a lot of talent and hard work paying off! Lovely work!

Hi mLee,

I've been selling jewelry for 3 years and I started with partner that did not work. I just joined etsy last nov trying to do this business on my own. This is not only a hobby but also my only source of income. I know this is a shameless way to promote my shop, but like some people who are desperate like me would try to get help.

I know it is impossible to make $100 a day sale at etsy, but I'm just dreaming big. I don't think there's any harm in that.... don't you think?...

I'll take HARDCOREBABY'S advice to sell to local boutiques. I was wondering if you have any advice.

Maybe I'm setting my goal to low.
