Learning about Etsy

Dear internets,
I’m pretty new to this Etsy thing. I’ve got things to sell and I know they’re excellent, but I just think I need more exposure. I’m mostly writing this post to track what I’m up to and hopefully someone can learn from this one day (most likely candidate: Me!) Here’s how I’m getting my things ‘out there’ at the moment:

☁ I am pretty active on Instagram – nearly 450 followers now!

☁ Facebook page has a little under 100 followers, most are people I already know. They’re my best customers til now!

☁ Adding listings almost daily to my Etsy shop

I just wasn’t conviced this was enough, so I’m trying out paid Etsy Search Ads. Maximum of $7 per week – I’ll trial it for a couple of weeks and see what happens there.

I’ve also been making fancy spreadsheets to track all my spendings and profits – I’m yet to break even but I’m working towards that fast!

I wonder if I’m missing something! I’ll just keep chugging away sewing cushions and seeing if anyone wants to hug and hold those things 😀
