    Hi
    I joined etsy in october last year, I have slowly been adding more items and now have 40+ items for sale, however I am still to make that first sale! Im wondering if etsy is really worthwhile & if anyone has any tips on how to increase sales on the site?
    Thanks

    If you add your site name to your signature here, we'll be able to have a look and at least your views will go up!

    I haven't made any sales on etsy, but I have had 5 on folksy. So I think I will stop advertising on etsy. X

    Hi there

    I have done quiet well on Etsy and have had over 100 sells in my first 10 months (I can't yet post URL's but my shop name on Etsy is Bebe B0utique (use a zero in Boutique)

    Photos are really important to shoppers on Etsy so having great, quirky photo's of your product really helps. I have also found that whenever you list an item always state 1 as your quantity, this means when you re-list your items it goes to the top of the list (hope this makes sense)... I also find trying to list one or two items a week can also help as again this keeps you near the top of the item list (For example my main category of dribble bibs there is 7 pages with 15+ items on each) so competition is fierce.

    Good luck!
