hello team mates,
let's help each other out by sharing

1 ( ......maybe 2 ) of your **secret *** tips
about selling, making a cute product, balancing work / family or how to reach out to potential buyers.

spill those *** secret *** now ..... i know you have some .....

I will go 1st :
I am very fast about answering customer's message, I found that it seems to help me convert them into sales sooner.

Hi all.

I am very new here....seems like a great team!! : )

Here are a couple things I do to add to what Grace said:

1. I have email on my phone...so when I get a convo...it is answered in usually 5 minutes. Grace is right...you snooze ...you lose.

2. With every order I ship out I add "Lagniappe" It means "a little something extra" I always include with orders something free with a sticker on it that says "FREE- because you are awesome" Sometimes it is a pen case, sometimes an ink refill, sometimes it is just wrapped candy (pepermint mint) to have while they open the box. : ) So many people have written back thanking me for the freebie. It isn't the value of the freebie. It is the the thought that you included ANYTHING extra. : )

Look forward to see whats next!

All the best,

Mike

Mike, have to say that when I open a package for something I've ordered and get a free extra something, it just makes me smile. Love it. Also think a handwritten thank you note is a great extra.

I wasn't sure where to post this, but I started a shop almost a year ago on etsy and just recently opened a new shop (the one I have now). In my old shop, my pictures were not very good (distracting backgrounds and blurry lens) and I didn't know much about SEO but I was still making about $500 a month, so I was happy! Now, however, I've only made two sales in the new shop in the last 40 days and don't get any of the kind of views/sales I used to have. I would really like a review of the way my shop looks, how good my keywords are and any other suggestions. I started my own website to go along with my shop here: www.bonfirevintage.com. Please look at both my website and my etsy shop and let me know if you see any problems. I would really appreciate it as I'm starting to really second guess this shop change :(

one tips / ideas that I found to help me with my shop is:

1) know some of the words that " Google shopping " dis-like, so I can avoid using them and what words " Organic Google ...the normal regular Google " accept.
For ex: the word FREE , as in free shipping is one word that " Google shopping " dislike
but it is ok to use in " Organic Google...the regular Google" most people use to search.

Bailey, you shop opens less than 1 month, so i think it is ok to think normal ebbs & flow of summer months / normal supply & demand of products.
We don't do whole shop critique, but overall, your shop photos are very clear & nice. Hang in there , good luck :-)
