Last weekend I made my first custom order ever! It was pretty fun actually :) A lady wanted a set of lion cards, just like the other watercolor animal cards I have in my Etsy shop.
I've had quite the dry spell with my shop this year. Until the other day, I hadn't sold a thing since last December. So I decided to take a few risks and actually pay Etsy to feature some of my stuff. Looks like it worked!
I've decided that if I want to make this work I have to take more risks. Naturally, I am not much of a risk taker, so I think this will be good for me :)
Just a question for those of you with Etsy shops.... How do you promote your shop? Have you had any luck with advertising? Any thoughts would be greatly appreciated! Thanks!
