My NEW and First Etsy Shop!
Check out my Etsy shop here... http://www.etsy.com/ca/shop/SimpleisPrettyShop
I made my first product listings yesterday. This is a big step for me because I like to have things perfect. And things are far from perfect. I don’t even have business cards yet! I decided that even though I’m not 100% ready to be open (in my eyes), what business is ever 100% ready to be open when they open their doors for the first time?
This is huge learning curve for me as I have never opened an Etsy shop or any other store for that matter. I am excited and nervous and SCARED. What if no one buys my products? I know this is a common fear. I’ve also read that it can take weeks and even months to get your first Etsy sale. YIPES. And I think this is one reason why I decided to open my shop when it is not 100% ready. I tend to over think things. I’m hoping that I will keep my mind occupied with making my products, figuring out the Etsy system and studying all the tips to becoming a successful Etsy seller. Hopefully, that way, if I don’t get my first sale for a while I will still be busy. Having said that, if I do sell one of my products I will be thrilled and I'll figure things out quick ;)
So the first step, which is announcing my store is open is now completed. Whew! A slight relief.
I’d love to hear your feedback about my Etsy store. Both good and bad--although try to be gentle
