I have been preparing my Etsy jewelry store for the past few weeks for some changes. I re-shot pictures of EVERYTHING, because the picture quality of all my items just wasn't up to par. Mandy told me how to take pictures of items close up, and when I got the hang of it, I loved how much better the new pics looked compared to the old! Of course, Etsy won't take the pixel size of the pics I took, so I had to change all of them to make sure the pics could be uploaded onto the site. All of this took many days to get through, between taking the pics, resizing them, and putting the new ones up on the site and taking down the old. But, I got it all finished before I went on vacation!
Etsy has several sections where stores can be featured, and if you would like your store to be in a certain section, you can pay a fee for a slot in that section for a certain day. The thing is, though, it's TOUGH getting a slot! A couple weeks ago, I was going to see about getting a slot that went on sale at 12 noon, and then completely forgot to try to get it. Later that night, a bit after midnight, I remembered and logged onto Etsy to see if there were any slots left. I saw that they listed a Spring Section, so I luckily was able to buy a slot for tomorrow (April 9th)!! So hopefully my store will be viewed by a TON of people, and I sure hope maybe at least one person will make a purchase!!
