I'm trying not to be too discouraged or crabby about it, but my Etsy sales during November and December were absolutely dismal. It was especially disheartening because I had been working on Christmas products almost continuously since September. Not to mention that this stuff now threatens to crowd me out of house and home. So I created a separate sale section in my shop and hope that the reduced prices will clear out some or all of my inventory. Stop by and take a look.
Typical of most of us in the new year, I'm going to re-evaluate and try and determine what I need to improve upon - or how. Is it the product? Marketing? Visibility on Etsy? Once we get through this holiday season I may put together a questionnaire and have you help me make some decisions. I love being able to do what I'm doing, but the secondary goal is to supplement my retirement income and that's the part that's not happening for me.
In the meantime, I'm still in holiday mode and hope this holiday season is bringing you much happiness, warmth and love! I'll be in touch.
