I (heart) Etsy

So, I am a huge fan of the site Etsy.com.  If you don’t know what Etsy is, it’s an amazing site where people can sell their homemade goods, supplies for crafts or vintage items.  I highly recommend checking it out.

I purchase a lot of supplies for my jewelry from Etsy, but I have always been a little intimidated by the idea of selling on the site.  Years ago, when I began selling my jewelry over the internet, I gave Etsy a try.  I didn’t have any strategies for marketing my shop, I didn’t have any cool graphics and I had horrible, fuzzy photos that I used to display my work.  Needless to say, my store was not much of a success.  But not anymore….

I am setting a goal to get my Etsy shop up and running by the end of February.  It will be mostly jewelry, but I will also have other crafts available for sale.  I have my strategy all planned out, which includes blogging here, setting up a facebook site with link, and setting up some pictures on flickr.  I will have a colorful, catchy banner.  I will have clear and professional looking photos of my work.  And, most importantly, I will market my site to the best of my ability.  I’m really excited to take on this new adventure!

Look for my work soon at creativityismess.etsy.com!
