Karen was at it again.........

I belong to Etsy BESTeams......Love the way we feature each other's shops and am amazed at all the wonderful shops there are on Etsy.....I have put alot of them in my circle just from reading and posting features on shops.

But the last email I received from Karen (and her information is well worth the long read) because BESTeams is the best

and I am always learning something new.  I need all the help I can get because my Etsy store is, well, it's there.....I get views and I get featured.....but I am lacking in customers.  I have followed everyone's advice from buying business cards, social networking, coupon codes, discounts etc.  but still am waiting for customers.


I did get one customer who became a friend and we often email.  She comments on my blog and I recently fixed a bracelet for her. I also cant forget Cathryn whom I met through Lori Anderson's Bead Soup Blog Party....we keep in touch also.  I also had someone give me a makeover on my store and make me a new banner.....Etsy people are the best.

But now I need some serious customers...So when I read Karen's email where she said the best way to do this was to go to Etsy Forums.....well, I will listen again and get involved in these forums....I really must do some more surfing around Etsy.....sometimes I just need a push and I thank Karen for doing that.....So I am off to the Forums ..... and we will see what happens...

If you are in the Forums, please give me a "hello" and steer me in the right directions....you are also welcome to check out my store and critique......

  1. Hi,
    So where did you go in the forums today?
    I've been posting on Treasury's but I am not sure if that has made a difference, as I am in the same dilemma!
    Your not alone :)

  2. I was there yesterday at
    http://www.etsy.com/forums and left a few posts....I shouldnt complain, people see my etsy store and call me to make arrangements to buy..especially if they are in the neighborhood...so I do sell outside of etsy - since I put evil eye bracelets in the store I have 5 orders to fill....but I would really like to sell to the public besides my friends....I cant seem to find out what I am doing wrong although I am told to hang on...the forums are informative though...will try them for awhile...I do everything, FB, twitter, blog, business cards etc. Keep trying!
