Now, I've sold my creations before. (Mostly at craft fairs, commissions, and through friends.) I've just never sold anything specifically through Etsy. Last year, in the months before the start of 2013, I made a small goal to make my first sale on Etsy. (My shop is a little over a year old.) I, however, failed. Now, a year later from that goal, I've finally succeeded. There was even a time this year I was debating giving up. I did not renew my Etsy listings and listed some things on Storenvy with no luck. This October I decided to give Etsy another shot and it happened! I made a sale!
I know that one sale does not mean I can quit my day job and start calling myself an entrepreneur, but it's a start. I am going to buckle down and really start taking my shop seriously now. If you own an Etsy shop and have any advice or tips I would be so grateful!
If you are interested in my shop it's called Nerdy Monsters and can be found at: NerdyMonsters.etsy.com
I sell handmade designer plushies, jewelery, accessories, and more.
I am also starting to send out a shop newsletter which you can sign up for here.
The monsters and friends are also on Facebook, Twitter, and Tumblr.
