After two weeks, I'm shocked at my sales... OK... that I've had more than one sale - three actually. And one customer went to my glass bead site and bought something there too! Whooo Hooo! It feels good to be noticed and not feel like you must be making the ugliest beads in the world.
Because the promo team takes all kinds of sellers...not just glass bead makers... it's opened up a whole new world on Etsy for me. And made me rethink a few things.
While tweeting links for my team members, I inevitably see nice things I would like to buy if I had some money coming in. And I'm just as amazed at info I want as a buyer that's missing.
I saw a cake platter that would fit right in with decor at the niece's wedding... The photo was beautiful but... there was no sense of size or scale. No where in the listing did it say how tall it was or the width of the platter. I had to read the mandatory materials listing to find what it was made of... and yes, I could've convo'd the seller... but I was busy... and she lost a sale.
As someone who only dabbles in jewelry, I'm amazed at how many jewelry listings I see... and just as many have dark or out of focus photos. Your photo is your best chance to sell your piece... if a buyer can't look at it and be intrigued enough to read the listing... how is it going to sell??
It's made me go back at retake some pictures and recheck my listings for sizes and any other info a buyer might need. Which of the photos below do you like better??
