I just had to share the news….my Etsy Shop, It’s Still Life, hit 200 sales. My goal with my shop was to hit 100 sales in one year. I opened my shop on July 12, 2011. I hit my 100th sale in early June this year. I was thrilled. Success and hard work set me up for more success. I really worked hard to get more items in my shop over the summer. I am now over 120 items listed.
This week I had my 200th sale. Yep. It took 11 months to get 100 sales. Now it took 4 months to get another 100 sales.
So if you are thinking of opening an Etsy Shop, I strongly encourage you to do that. It isn’t as hard as it looks. Don’t get me wrong, it takes a lot of work and time, but it isn’t hard. Etsy is responsive. When I have had questions, I have had quick, good responses from them. Customers have been awesome.
At first I was thrilled when I had one sale a week. Now I am averaging 5-6 sales a week. It has been a great ride. Now I need to think about what my goals are for the next 8 months of my second year of sales.
Thank you for reading my blog, the encouragement I have received, and the pat on the backs through comments and emails. You make this journey, even my life, a whole lot of fun.
