So, I’ve finally decided to create an Etsy Store…
I had been getting a few requests via Facebook as to where people can take orders for specific prints, and tbh I didn’t really have anywhere to send anyone. ‘Twas more or less just a custom order option… However, Etsy felt like the logical place to begin.
For those who don’t know, Etsy is a online company that is home to a thriving online marketplace of “craft” featuring jewellers, candlemakers, fashion designers, woodcutters and other artists from around the world. The website allows individuals to create their own shop, sell craft and items to consumers, customise their forum and develop relationships with other areas of expertise such as merchandising companies etc.
It is a fantastic place to begin a shop due to the easy managing and personalisation of your account and especially as those who search and shop on Etsy, use specific and distinctive search tags that enables them to view and search for items and craft they are actually interested in buying. Your images will come up on a feed of much related items and it allows the user to shop around and pick what’s right for them. You can tag, and label your items within the market place (like eBay and Amazon), although the presentation of the search feed decorates and presents craft as it needs to be rather than having your items being placed and missed because of a stagnant usually unrelated search feed of about 50+pages like other online store hosting sites.
Anyway, head over… Take a look… More to come…
