Top 5 Tips for Excelling on Etsy

What makes an Etsy shop stand out from the crowds, so to speak? How do you draw in customers and entice them to make a purchase, and then come back? Well, frequent Jewelry Stringing contributor, Lorelei Eurto, offers these five tips for setting up shop and providing excellent service to your customers.

1. Provide good photographs: Take clear and close shots that show off your jewelry.

2. Create an attractive, cohesive store: Include a professional banner, well-worded introduction, and clear shop policies.

3. List new items regularly: List something new, or “renew” an item in your shop, at least every other day to avoid having your shop buried under all the other shops who list every day.

4. Provide fast, reliable service: Send a message to the buyer, letting them know you got their order and will be shipping the item soon. Also be sure to package the items so they arrive safely at the buyer’s home.

5. Be personable: Forming relationships is what Etsy is supposed to be about. You want your customers to come back again because they loved their purchase, and they like you (see number 4)!

Have you been thinking of opening an Etsy shop but you’re not sure where to start? This Thursday, October 30th, join Lorelei in a live web seminar as she walks you through the process of opening up an Etsy shop.
