Tips from Your Teammates

In the past few weekly forum threads our members have had the opportunity to share their tips, questions, and general crafty advice. A couple weeks ago members were asked to share an Etsy tip about anything from listing to promoting. Here's what a few of our fabulous members had to say.

 MariaSoliel says, "When I tag, I list all of the colors in the item, and sometimes off names, too (like chocolate for brown). I also tag with my shop's name and of course, etsywmi team. Tagging is how people find your stuff in a search so be sure to use them all!"

YKnotShop says, "My tip, don't stop trying. I know it is hard, but the 
harder you work it the more prosperous you are sure to be."

OneHauteHostess says, "I would say look up and see if your items are called something else in another country. I found out that the candy buffets that are so popular at weddings here are called "lolly" buffets in other countries. I've added that to my tags and sold 3 to Australia!"

TheElegantElle says, "My best tip would be to truly renew 
or list something new every day. I did it in the months of 
July and August and saw a HUGE return.

JulieAndCo says, "Make sure if you have measurements for dimensions, weights, etc. to put it into metric as well for all our overseas shoppers."

AbacusBeadCreations says, "My Etsy tip is to make lots of treasuries. Making treasuries helps get you into treasuries. And that's the only 
way to get to the FP of Etsy these days."

DelightedHands3113 says, "Have great, clear, crisp, engaging, irresistible photos in every single photo slot."
