I’ve been trying hard lately to get sales for my brand, and I have been coming up short. So, I’ve decided to come to the blog for advice! I am completely new to branding, marketing and sales. I have a small shop on Etsy where I sell handmade crochet items, but I haven’t had any luck.
The burning question here is, would I have better luck selling if I made my own website? Etsy seems so saturated with the same stuff and it is so hard to get recognition to your own store. Does anyone else have this problem? It doesn’t help that I am brand new and have no sales as of yet.
So here are some questions I have for the seasoned salespeople:
- Do you have an Etsy shop?
- Do you have your own domain and website?
- Which do you have better luck on?
- Do you have any advice for a complete newbie?
Please drop me a comment below if you are familiar with sales on a website, Etsy, or are familiar with good marketing strategy!
