Still cant get found.

Hi everyone . I'm still having trouble being found. I took all the brilliant advice that was given . Changed tags to 2 and 3 word tags for relevancy. Changed titles and descriptions. Promoted on face book. Joined some fantastic teams. Circled and hearted faves I liked. Made treasuries .participated on the forums. Attended labs, bought show case and ads. Still having really low views though. Please help.

Hi Coral,
You might join more circles...one thing though, you have been on Etsy for about 7 weeks and had several sales, which isn't that bad for getting started. It just takes a while to get things going on Etsy. I think sales have been pretty slow lately for most of us. I've read on the forums that april is the worst month.
I would recommend re-listing 5-10 items each day to get noticed! It is a financial commitment, but I find that it does work and pays off in the end!
I think you are headed in the right direction. It just takes time to get noticed. I suggest changing your shop announcement. It looks like you have listed a bunch of tags as your intro instead of introducing your shop.

Three sales in such a short time is awesome!

Best wishes!
You should also take pictures of your toppers on actual cakes, maybe even set up a table with party settings and a cake in the middle. Also, try advertising on blogs that promote children, there must be a ton of them! best wishes!
Or instead of relisting, add new items daily or as often as you can. Don't overdo the relisting b/c then you are just taking away from your profit.
Thank you so much for the advice. Was told a lot of people are funny about people adding circles as they find it intrusive. I love looking at peoples beautiful work though.

I have been here less than 2 weeks so I'm having the same problems. However, you have at least got a few sales, so that's something! Be happy about those, and I'm sure given another 7 weeks your sales will increase even more.

Best of luck!
I have to agree with the photography, about putting the cake toppers on actual cakes because I thought they were toys as at first because your shop name, shop banner & photos say nothing about cakes.

They are pretty cute, though!
They are cake toppers? I had no idea...other than it being mentioned in the item titles which is partially cut off in some of the listings I couldn't tell either and that may be one of your biggest roadblocks. I love the idea of showing them on cakes. That's perfect. Add that information to your announcement and tag line as well. It took me longer than 7 weeks to get 3 sales so you'll be OK. :)
