I have a confession to make. I love stats! Is that weird?
Etsy has this great stats tool that lets seller see what buyers are searching for and how they arrived at your store. Here’s what search terms have led people to my store since January 1st:
Pinwheels! Lots of pinwheel searches, but no one has purchased any of my pinwheel related items. What does this tell me? I’m not selling the right thing! This month I’m going to put up some different pinwheel related items and see what sticks. I have a feeling that people just want straight up pinwheels, like the kind I had at my wedding:
Which of my items have people been looking at?
Notebooks! Yay! People are really interested in these notebooks. I have a few ideas in store for that category. We’ll see how it goes!
Here are the items that people have added to their favorites:
Notebooks are doing well here, too. I’m going to try some different color variations to see if that gets more interest. I’m open to options! Any ideas of what I could change in order to turn those views into sales?
So, I’ve been a total internet slacker and haven’t posted in a while. I’ve been so busy working on a million projects - some at home, some for Artsy Lydia.
The big news is that I made a few Etsy sales!
For Christmas, I embroidered Moleskine notebooks with the names of friends and gave them as gifts. The recipients were so enthusiastic, I decided to try the same idea out in my Etsy shop. I had 2 notebook sales in the last month. Not a lot by any means, but it actually doubled my total sales! :)
