So, I think I'm not getting Etsy. Etsy wizards, can I get a little help? What am I doing wrong with my shop? Do you have favorite tips/tricks sites?
This is my shop
, selling photographgs. I get favorites every day, and I'm included in treasury lists nearly every day. But all the attention and eyeballs have gotten me no sales via the site.
I'm perfectly willing to accept that perhaps people just don't want pictures of what I'm selling, but is it unusual to get favorited and treasuried so often but have that result in no sales?
Other possibilities I've considered:
-I am not exactly active in the "Etsy community."
-I have not made my shop inviting enough
-I haven't really provided that much info about myself and my work.
-My prices and/or shipping are too high.
-My prices for the photos might be too LOW, thus devaluing my work.
-This is not the right place to be selling photos.
-Photos rarely sell online, which I'm aware of. But it seems like other photographers have success on the site.
I really don't know that much about Etsy...I've always thought of it as a world unto itself and as much a community as a place to buy handmade stuff online.
So, please fire away. I'm a big boy, if what I'm selling is crap, you can say so.
