I had been kind of bummed out about the state of sales on my Etsy shop, so on a whim I listened to Pricing for Profit from the Etsy Success seminar series. That gave me a boost to work on things and check out the other videos in that series. Plus lately I have had tons of energy. I re-photographed many of my listings, finished some backlogged projects, boosted inventory, reworked key words, and did some storytelling with my product descriptions. Lots more to do, as there always is, but that's it so far.
I guess it is starting to pay off, I can see the view counts rising.
I work with recycled billboard vinyl advertising tarps. Those products are for sale available at http://www.vinally.ca/ I also sell at http://www.etsy.com/shop/VinAlly
I live in Calgary Alberta. I worked for 12 years in the oilpatch as a geologist/database analyst. I also have a Certificate in Visual Design from the University of Calgary. I also paint and draw cartoons on the iPad. Vinally2010 on Flickr.
