I definitely am working towards that goal, and it is my hearts desire to get to that point one day. I would love for my items to "fly off the shelf" so to speak.
When I take a look at the competition, I notice two things... #1, they re-list ALL the time! Etsy is a super concentrated website, with a lot of awesomely talented folks. When you list an item at 9AM usually by 9:06AM it has moved back a few pages. You want to stay towards the top, and the only way to do that is re-listing. (At .20 per item, it can add up really quickly!)
#2, they have fabulous photos. Professional shots of their item/s being used, as well as a really fluid and cohesive concept throughout the entire shop.
I have been working with a Brick backdrop for my photos, and I absolutely love it. I love the colors, the contrast, and the overall appearance. But my item/s were still lacking those adorable newborn and toddler shots of my pretty creations being used.
You all have heard about my work relationship with Maddi Leigh Photography, and lately I have sent out sweet little "Photographer Packages" to several other photogs. I cannot WAIT to see my item/s on their amazing subjects. I know that the pictures will just be incredible.
Here is a shout out to some of the photographers that I am SUPER excited to work with in the coming months:
<3 Thanks to Denise, Christina, Karlen, Sarah, Kathy, and Jenn for agreeing to work with my products.
