100th Sale

Another milestone has been reached today, I just hit my 100th sale in my supplies shop. Two of my New Years resolutions were to list 100 things in my supplies shop (which I did about a month ago) and also to get 100 sales.I just wanted to post this as a virtual happy dance moment....woohoo.

This is my second shot at Etsy, I started my other shop in 2008, and nothing ever really happened with it. Sales were low and I never really understood what I was meant to do with it. I spent lots of time on it but most of it was in the wrong direction. I was very tempted to give up on the whole thing. But I gave it one more try.

Here is what I did...

-I blogged more
-Joined a team, and became a very active member
-Got a facebook fanpage
-Started doing giveaways on the blog
-Regularly comment on other bloggers posts
-Bought and ad with craftcult(very successful)
-Bought an ad on facebook(terrible waste of money)
-Vastly improved my photos
-Listed 100 items, and always trying to add new things
-Post in the Etsy forums regularly
-Have great customer service to encourage return customers

I hope this helps any of you who feel like you want to give up. I know 100 isn't loads but it was a good milestone for me.

Let's just hope I get around to my third resolution and learn how to drive!
