In an attempt to climb out of the Etsy doldrums, I decided to reach out to a potential mentor. She was very receptive, and I now have a sounding board for how to work the Etsy machine. Along with tweaking my photography, I am tackling a slow and steady SEO rework on my listing tags and titles. This should keep me busy for a couple of months!
In addition, I have been making a ton of treasuries (those of you who follow me on social media are painfully aware of this!), in an effort to drum up some reciprocation. It is a necessary evil, but it gives me an opportunity to pay it forward to some of my Etsy buddies who also need some added exposure. I am hopeful that it won’t be too long before I begin to see some payoff for all this effort! Etsy itself may not appreciate my style of jewelry, but there are plenty of people who do.
