critique

Here is the first Critique with Torchwood Studio




"First of all, I can't tell you how much I appreciate the review and critique. It truly is an honor to have you pick my shop out of all the other well-deserving ones. Thanks for doing this and thanks for the kind comments in the review." Todd "Torchwood Studio




here it goes..

first: lets start at the top....your banner looks a bit stretched...could just be me but that is how i see it. i love your logo! i personally don't have a great banner, but it has worked for me so i am keeping it..

second: your shop announcement is perfect...not to long!

Items: first: i am sure you are working on this but get some more items listed..it takes time i know..

second: great job on the tags always use 14...i would put your shop name as one of your tags on each item..

third: use all 5 pictures...it seem like overkill sometimes, but the pics are what sell the item.


really everything looks great in your shop...so 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

*** Heart every shop...i have over 2500 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.

**** be as active in the forums...when i first started i was nuts...i have posted in over 2800 threads....it works trust me...when you think it doesn't it does.

**** try some sales...there is always a sns running on saturday nights in the forum.

**** if you don't have a blog get one...and read my tips!! haha

**** come up with a smaller less expensive item...i started selling furniture...then i came up with my jewelry...


thanks,
timothy

What great advice Timothy. One thing that I learned with Etsy is that the more that you put in the that you get out !

Christy DeKoning said...

Thanks for the very good advice Timothy - I always use all 14 tags, including my name, and it really works.

Hi Timothy! Great ideas! Very valuable for any business on Etsy. I will have to fill my tags up to 14.
