  • Etsy - Nil desperandum.....!

    Hi all,

    I've posted about Etsy a few times before, quite honestly - I was beginning to lose the will to live , continually feeding stuff into there, like wot your s'posed to do and getting no sales - OK, it's only 8/9 weeks - but a sniff of something ?...nahhh.

    And as for joining forums and groups and doing self - promotion, that really isn't my thing, it should be, but it isn't....

    Anyway, last Friday brought an enquiry as to shipping to US for a cheeseboard - about the same as the cost of the cheeseboard, madam - and that was that.

    Then yesterday a custom sale for a couple of Picture frames (UK) and this morning a very, very, very nice lady from Seattle wants to buy almost 1/3rd of the shop, and is that alright? - you bet it is !

    The moral of this story, if you've got something worth selling....keep on banging your head against that wall, you may get something back in return for all the headaches.

    Chris.

    Great news on the sales - sheer "dogged" determination works wonders.

    Cheers.

      I agree with your comments just so long as you don't sew your seeds in stoney ground, a mistake I have made more than once. Congratulations and good luck.

                        That is great news - I hope it continues for you. Etsy can feel like such an overwhelming place to try & sell in, it is encouraging to hear of someone having a bit of success.
