There is nothing like getting some sales to get me motivated. I've been doing alot of reading on Search Engine Optomtimization (SEO). This is a scary bunch of words that just means that I'm trying to get my little Etsy store and thus my Arks & Stuff seen by folks that might want to buy them. As a result of this I've taken the advice of the sage experts and done the following:
1. Changed my Etsy Shop Title. I'm still Best Loved Child but the Shop title is the first line after the banner and is what Google and others use in their searches. Mine now reads "Wooden Noah's Ark Sets, Handpainted Decor". Before it was something fluffy and irrelavant- even I can't remember what it was.
I also had an Etsy Showcase today and I wanted to feature my Wooden Noah's Ark Basic Set but I needed new pictures as I had sold the other Basic Set. I've been struggling with my photos. I've never been great with the camera (always wanted to be). The BL Kids have been some of the least photographed children in America. Back to research. Etsy had a blog post that was full of pointers (and made me feel better as some Etsy pros showed their early "bad" pics).
