I started an Etsy shop last year and have finally started to list items on the site. I know lots of you out there sell online but I’ve never been sure how to go about this.
I’ve sold quite a lot of jewellery through the museum which has given me a confidence boost but I wanted an outlet for my more unusual pieces which probably appeal to a younger audience. Having said that, before they make it to the site they often get claimed as presents by family member(s).
If you sell on Etsy (or anywhere else for that matter) I’d appreciate any tips or insights you can offer. The shop is called PoolOfGems and if you just google ‘pool of gems’ I’m pretty sure you will find it easily enough. Actually, even if you don’t sell I’d be interested in any feedback you can give me.
I’m not planning to start trying to sell through this blog as I’ve built up a lovely group of wordpress friends and I don’t really like being marketed at myself, but your opinions would be very helpful. As you probably know by now I’m rubbish at links but I’ll give it a go a href=”http://www.etsy.com/PoolOfGems ”
If you could let me know which items are most appealing and which are (in your opinion) a bit of a waste of time that would be great. Possibly even more useful would be ways to describe my jewellery. Any tips about tags would be good too.
Here’s my latest make:
