Hi Tiffany!

You sew such beautiful clothing! :-) Thanks for the link... and good luck with your sale!

I'm having a 25% off sale in my store. Here's a link:

www.inamoratatrousseau.com/

(I connected my own domain name to my Etsy so it will take you there.)

How do you post a pic within the link? That's cool how you did that! :-)

Oh thank you so much! Good luck with your sale too! Your pieces are so beautiful and intricate! Does it take long to make? I actually just pasted in the link and it appeared like that! I didn't know either!

Good luck with your sales! It would be great to hear back how you did as the few sales I did weren't worth doing. I do more of specials type of thing instead and remember google doesn't like the word "sale" so it may skip your listings altogether.

The real reason is due to what we make as you don't want to come across as a discounter so just be careful how often you run one. As I've positioned myself as an artist my demographic doesn't expect it anyways.

Hi thegirlwithafeather,

You're welcome! Thank you so much for such a lovely compliment :-) Yes, it takes sometimes a week or more to sew one corset. But I love sewing them.

Oh, thanks for telling me... I'll try posting a link within the body of the text and see if that works next time!

Hi SavoyFaire,

Thanks so much for the good wishes for our sales! I didn't know that google won't list a "sale"... interesting. I'll read up on how better to do a promotion.
:-)

I know what you mean... not even a nibble on my sale. Thanks for the heads up. I'm sure you know from experience and I appreciate you sharing your thoughts with us!

It's always good to try for yourself as our customer demographics all differ due to our pricepoints but then learn from it. Sometimes we need to raise prices rather than lower them. : )

Here is the post on SEO/Google if you haven't read it yet:

It reminded me to shorted my titles again and wow did they take off! Views and hearts went way up!

These are good advices, SavoyFaire, thanks! I haven't read this, too. Now I will rename all my listings :)

Thank you so much SavoyFaire for all these suggestions. I will definately have a read of that article! Now that I think of it, sales have never really worked for me!

Good luck everyone
