EmergEtsy Surgery: Free Advice For Selling on

Free Advice for Selling on Etsy

Because I’ve been selling on Etsy for over 4 years, I’ve got a wealth of experiments and failures in my favour! If you’d like to improve your Etsy shop I can help you in one of two ways: Read this month’s top tip, below and then if you’d like some really tailored-to-you advice leave a link to your Etsy shop in the comments and I’ll have a browse and come back to you with a way you can improve! Hope you find it useful!

// This month’s top tip:
Open up your shipping offering to worldwide! If you think no-one will pay the high shipping rates to receive a parcel overseas, you’d be surprised! I’ve had customers pay more for shipping than for the actual item they purchased. Make sure you research costs, services, customs fees and everything that goes hand in hand with sending mail, though! Sometimes you have to do a bit of trial and error to get it exactly right, but the forums are a great place for advice.

// Open Surgery:
You’ve got between today and this Friday (18th August) to leave a link to your Etsy shop in the comments below and throughout the week I’ll reply to each person with a piece of advice to help improve your shop and boost sales. I might give you advice on your photography, tags, descriptions, policies… anything I think that might help.

After the 18th comments will be closed. If you’ve missed out on free advice for selling on Etsy this week, don’t worry, I’ll be running the same thing again next month! Make sure you don’t miss out by following on Bloglovin’ or Twitter.

    I’d love to have my shop looked at. I know there’s not much in there yet but I’m working on it. :) That and my banner. Need to re-shoot it. Thanks! :) x

    Hi! I’ve been following your blog for years, but this is my first comment. I just started my husband’s etsy page recently (3 months ago). So far, I’ve only posted a few items, and we’ve been getting decent views, but so far, no sales. In addition to adding more items, do you have any other advice?

    Hi! Can you take a sneaky peek at my store? I do get sales here and there but they’re few and far between. Is there any way to improve the visibility of my store? I do regular promotions and sales but these don’t seem that effective, I normal get sales after a promotion or special offer has finished?! Thanks :) Jen x
