So What Wednesday

Linking up with Shannon this week for So What Wednesday.

This week I'm saying So What if....
  • I try to make sure our apartment is picked up just enough before my mother-in-law gets here. It usually happens last minute, but I try.
  • I want to know what's in the water that all of my friends are drinking? In the past month or two there have been at least 8 people announcing their pregnancies or having babies. Could someone send me some of that water, please?
  • I get annoyed when friends are late coming over and don't call or text to let me know. I usually will have dinner or lunch ready and it's not fun to have to sit there, wait, and watch it get cold, especially when I'm hungry.
  • I get more business from family and friends from my Etsy shop. There are so many people on Etsy, it's hard to have your product always show up in the searches.
  • I have no idea how to "market" my business on Etsy. Can someone help a sister out?
  • I'm trying to get my sister to come out here to visit in December. She wants to come, but I'm a planner and would like to be able to plan things ahead of time.
  •  I love Febreeze. There, I said it. I like how it makes everything smell fresh and has a lovely, light scent.

Oh honey it's baby boom in our circle of friends too! And for once I don't want ANY of that water!

Thanks for commenting on my blog. Do you have information on your blog about your ETSY store? That's how I find a lot of ETSY shops. You could also host a giveaway/coupon code through a popular blog (like Shannon's). Hope that helps.

I second Karen's comment about having a button/link on your blog to your Etsy shop. That's a GREAT place to start. Definitely giveaways will give you lots of exposure to people. Once you start seeing new people come to your Etsy shop through your blog, if they make a purchase, be sure to send them a coupon on any future purchase from you. Give special coupon codes to friends and family to measure those sales as opposed to sales from others.

For your listings, make sure you use keywords that explain/describe your product, and keep the product information paragraphs precise and on-target. Also use the maximum number of tags allowed.

Hope this helps! :-)
