Selling On Etsy Tip #1 Introduce yourself to the Etsy community


Etsy started out slowly for me, it does for most sellers. I made a total of 4 sales my first month, with a long slow 10 day nothing, right in the middle of it all. I continued to add more items to my shop and got really excited about making new cool Etsy product but it just wasn't happening. I was about to give up when I found myself in the forums. I introduced myself and immediately managed to piss a few people off by bringing up the top sellers list (now gone) and bit by bit my business started to grow, which is your tip of the day.


Tip 1

Post in the forums. Often, occasionally, once in a while. Introduce yourself, start a promotion thread (joining them on page 20 doesn't do much to increase your views), post something silly in the ETC section. Staying out of heated threads *is probably a good idea but sometimes they can be fun.

Etsy people often buy as much as they sell, letting the community know you are there is a good way to start!

This is definitely good advice. Sellers all too often forget how many sellers buy buy buy. I buy something at least once a week, and almost exclusively from forum-posting sellers.

Cool idea for a blog topic. :)

Thanks for the tips! I've been considering selling on Esty lately and the information your posting helps me feel more confident in my decision to do so.

i know it's good advice to buy, but what if you are unemployed and barely able to keep up with student loan payment..? I can't afford to buy anything right now.

Even in the most sexually liberated and self-satisfied of nations, many people still yearn to burn more, to feel ready for bedding no matter what the clock says and to desire their partner of 23 years as much as they did when their love was brand new.
The market is saturated with books on how to revive a flagging libido or spice up monotonous sex, and sex therapists say “lack of desire” is one of the most common complaints they hear from patients, particularly women.
