Critique for BellaRhysDesigns
here it goes..
first: lets start at the top....I like the idea of your banner..the black with the bright colors
looks great..i would try to bring the lampwork beads more in, so you can see more of them.
second: your shop announcement is perfect...long announcements are never good. Try coming up with
a slogan or a shop saying.
Third: Profile...Your profile is great....
first: Your shop is new, so your item number is low. keep working on adding more items so
customers will have more of a selection.
second: The all important TAGS...You need to use all 14 tags every time. when you don't use all 14
that lowers the search possibilities for that item. Also put your shop name as one of the tags!!
third: Your pictures look great, but you need to use all 5 pictures...it seem like overkill
sometimes, but the pics are what sell the item. Also for your key chain pictures try to have the
whole item in the thumbnail.
Fourth: Your shipping is a bit high... i would lower it a bit, and see if that helps.
lets drive some traffic to your shop!!
***First...don't go a single day without renewing an item....this brings your item to the top of
the list in the search. it will cost you $.20 but it is worth it..find out what item gets the most
views and renew it everyday. the best time to renew is at noon and after 5pm. Right now there are
21,360 jewelry items in the jewelry catagory. you have to been seen!
*** Heart every shop...I just hit 3000 hearts. i like to heart new shops cause newbies like to buy
things to get some feedback...this will get you noticed more around the community.
****You can also buy some items to get some feedback, exposure, and it is always fun to buy!!!
**** be as active in the forums...when i first started i was nuts...i have posted in over 3000
threads....it works trust me...when you think it doesn't it does. the best way to get exposure in
the forums is to start a thread your self.
**** try some sales...there is always a sns running on saturday nights in the forum.
**** Try looking through some treasuries, and leaving comments. And if it is possible try grabbing
a treasury of your own.
**** I see your blog is fairly new..have fun with it...and read my tips!! haha
**** the last tip i have for traffic is a little plug for The Handbook to Handmade.
With 175 etsy artists featured in 5 volumes, the handbook to handmade is a small cut of very
talented artists from around the world.
"the handbook to handmade" is a monthly volume of 35 ETSY artists and their shops...this is a
promotional tool that is used to help promote artists and etsy. the first volume was a success,
with a great mix of artists from 35 different cities from around the world.
now it is time for volume 6:
The handbook to handmade vol 6
well i hope these tips help!
