- Present your product. Pictures are pretty much the only thing your customers have to see online. Also, make sure you tag your items well, and have great descriptions.
- Don't be shy! Fill out your information: location, profile, policies, etc. Discuss your interests/hobbies/etc. of how you became a seller or a story about each product. Tell them where you're from! (It's Canadian made!!) That's how I got an offer to sell at a boutique and various craft show opportunities in my local area within a few months of opening shop.
- Connect with clients. I have a bunch of things I regularly update such as Flickr, Blog, Twitter, Facebook, etc. and not just the usual product pitch. I talk about my interests, other shops, cool articles I find, etc. You can join Etsy Teams! I'm currently in 20+ that I participate in regularly, and I made new connections.
Some sellers and I send extra business cards to each other so they can ship them out with their packages. Also, wear YOUR OWN pieces - it's free advertising for you!
