Did you enjoy the long, lazy summer days? Life definitely slows down this time of year and perhaps, so has your Etsy store. It seems like not that long ago we were pulling all-nighters creating holiday inventory and stocking our shop to meet December shipping deadlines. Initially we welcomed some of the respite of the slower […]
Since my daughter was born in December I’ve had plenty of time to sit around (thanks, dreaded night feeds…) and browse the Etsy forums. And those forums, they made one thing clear! There is panic is the air.
As an Etsy seller, you’ve probably had someone tell you that you NEED to be using social media to promote your Etsy shop. (It’s true. That’s what I tell members of my Crafter Community ALL the time). Chances are you are already using it and perhaps it’s not quite having the impact that you expected.
Have you started thinking about how to promote your Etsy shop for the holidays? Are you a little uncertain with what to do? Did you try something last year that worked ok but you want to do better this year? Or are you brand new to Etsy and still setting up your shop? Regardless of where […]

I often get asked exactly how an Etsy seller can use Pinterest to grow the traffic to their Etsy shop. So today I am showcasing two great examples coming straight from members of my Crafter Community. I especially want to focus on 6 things that these sellers are doing to optimise their pinterest accounts that will go a long […]
Have you recently opened an Etsy shop or are you thinking of opening one? Are you feeling a little lost? Or perhaps wondering why things aren’t happening as quickly as you thought? The first year on Etsy can be especially challenging. (I have a free online class that will help with this, you can sign […]
“My Etsy shop views have totally tanked this week” “My Etsy sales have completely dried up!” “No one is buying anything!!!” If you said something similar recently, you’re not alone.
