Posts Tagged ‘Etsy store

I’ve been on Etsy (CutieQ Cards n Crafts) for almost a month now.. and sadly.. I’ve made no sales..

I get a decent amount of views.. and some of my cards have been “favorited” by some browsers.. but sadly.. no sales..

Starting up a store isn’t easy.. especially since there are many, many people on there.. and they’ve already been established.. its hard to be the newcomer selling the same things that some of the “seasoned” Etsy’ers are selling..

I just gotta find my niche..

I gotta find a particular paper craft that can help me stand out.. or get buyers attention.. something..

I just need that one shot to sell something.. and maybe I’ll find my motivation..

It’s not that I’m giving up.. but sometimes it’s a little disappointing to post something.. and get the views.. but no sales.. but I’m not gonna stop.. I wanted to do this for awhile.. it’s going to take a lot for me to really quit..

I’ve got a Facebook page for the Etsy store.. I’m contemplating creating a separate blog for the Etsy store too.. that might not be for awhile.. but it is a thought..

I’ve got ideas.. and I will definitely be posting something on Etsy that is a little different.. and hopefully it will be my “in” with the Etsy store community..

At the same time, maybe all you can let me know what you would like to see.. if I can do it.. then it may be done!  Hee hee..

I finally did what I’ve been itching to do for the longest time..

I finally set up my Etsy store:  CutieQ Cards n’ Crafts by ArtsyViray

I’ve currently got one item for sale..

I want to start with some simple cards, maybe some embellished die-cuts, and if I’m brave enough.. some cross-stitching projects.. that’s why I named the store “cards n crafts” because I don’t want to limit myself to just paper products..

When I initially signed up for Etsy, I set up a store… but I never, ever, ever thought of posting or selling.  But I think that this is a good time to start..

Granted.. I am having a baby in September.. and my crafting time will be dramatically cut when she comes out.. but it’s good to start and get my name out now because Etsy has so many sellers, who knows if I’m even going to make a sale any time soon.  I’d love to think that I’d be successful immediately, but I have to be realistic and know that these things take time and perseverance.

I’d like to try to squeeze out as many crafts and I can before the little one comes out.. and then take a brief hiatus while I learn to incorporate the baby into our everyday routine.. and then hopefully get back to making some simple things to keep my store going..

I made sure to note that I will not be making or taking any custom orders.  What they see is what they get and what the get is what is already made.

I hope to make a little bit of extra spending money with this new little endeavor I’m venturing in.. if anything, I can use the money to feed my crafting habit without dipping into our family budget..

I don’t expect overnight success.. nor do I expect making a living out of this thing.. but I would like to see where this takes me..

Wish me luck, good vibes, prayers and all that good stuff.. and if you want.. buy something!  Hee hee..
