Here’s my rant on what Etsy shops need to be doing right inspired by: etsymentors.blogspot.com/p/critique-your-own-shop.html
When filling in artwork for your profile pic, banner and products: are you branded and do your photos look professional? Fill in and use as many pixels as you can on your Shop art.
Don’t skimp on the details!
Make sure to complete to your best ability all the profile fields and shop policy pages. People want to know you are with it and not a total slacker. Make sure you fill in ALL the tags and did you do your homework on good search terms for the Etsy products?
Is your shop using Shipping Profiles? Do it. This will save you time and money.
Try to imagine what Joe Blow will be Googling when he looks for your products. Are you writing your shop and products’ copy with search in mind?
Sharing is caring. It feels good to give.
Use social media to drive buyers to your Etsy shop. Pinterest. Done. OK, Facebook too.
