5 Things I’ve Learned to Keep My Shop Relevant on Etsy

5 Things I’ve Learned to Keep My Shop Relevant on Etsy

Are you a creative entrepreneur looking to thrive in the world of Etsy? Redstone Creative has come a long way since 2017, with 22,000 sales and a commitment to staying relevant in the ever-evolving Etsy marketplace. Here are five valuable lessons we've learned along the way:

1. Keep the Listings Flowing:

  • Listing 2-3 Items per Week: Staying consistent is key. Create a calendar of projects and plan ahead. Make sure to align your listings with upcoming holidays and trends to capture your target audience's attention.
  • Relevance Through Frequency: Frequent listings not only keep your shop fresh but also push you back into the Etsy search queue, increasing your visibility.

2. Plan Well in Advance:

  • Strategic Timing: We start working on new items at least 90 days in advance. For example, when it's September, we're already preparing for Christmas. Currently, we're busy crafting for Valentine's Day and Mardi Gras.

3. Harness the Power of Advertising:

  • Etsy Advertising: Etsy offers advertising options, and it's worth trying them out. Start small with a budget of $5 per day and monitor the results.
  • Leverage Social Media: Don't limit yourself to Etsy's platform. Collaborate with social media partners to reach a wider audience and increase your shop's visibility.

4. Stay Inspired but Be Unique:

  • Research Other Shops: Keep an eye on what other shops are listing, but remember not to copy them. Use their listings as inspiration to identify trending styles and products.
  • You Don't Know What You Don't Know: The world of creativity is vast. Don't hesitate to explore new ideas and styles that you might not have considered before.

5. Listen to Customer Feedback:

  • Customize for Success: When a customer provides feedback or suggests an alternative to an item you offer, listen and take it into consideration. Customizing your products based on customer input can lead to more sales in the long run.
  • Customer-Centric Approach: Your customers are your best advisors. Their feedback can guide your shop's evolution and ensure you're offering what they truly want.

At Redstone Creative, we've built a successful Etsy shop by embracing these five principles. As you navigate the world of online entrepreneurship, remember that adaptability and a customer-focused approach are your greatest assets. Stay relevant, stay creative, and keep thriving on Etsy!
