Time to do Some Work on Etsy Shop

Just the other day I posted about how I'm not really getting a lot of sales on etsy, but I am getting a good amount of views and just wondering what's missing. Well one person sent me a wonderful message with some helpful tips. She suggested writing better descriptions for my items to get more attention and make my pieces seem one of a kind and really special. Now normally I'm pretty good at writing and describing things, but not my own art/crafts. So if anyone could please help me come up with some descriptions for my items on etsy I would really appreciate that.

Etsy Success?

Well, it's been about a month and a half since I opened my shop on Etsy. Since opening I've had tons of views, but only seven sales. It's a bit of a downer, but I'm still so happy that I've made those seven sales. I'm just wondering what I need to do to make more sales. I seem to be able to get people to my shop just by posting on Facebook or on here, but what extra push do I need in order to get people to actually buy something? There are people on Etsy who have made thousands of sales; so how do they do it? Did it take them a long time to get to that point, or is there something they are doing that I am missing?

If any of you have any suggestions for how I could make more sales please leave a comment below. I would really appreciate any advice or input you could give.

So this week I decided to do a special deal in my etsy shop ( to try to get more customers and some extra money. I thought it would be a really good deal. I offered free shipping and a free pair of earrings with every purchase of $4 or more. Sounds great, right? Well apparently not so much. Only two people actually ordered anything.

There is still time though if you would like to make a purchase. The deal ends tonight at midnight (I believe) so head on over to my shop and make a purchase please.

When I have made 20 sales I'm going to do a giveaway, but that means people actually have to buy some stuff. :)

So please spread the word, share this with your friends and family.
