Shoppe Critique


I have been in a bit of a slump with my Etsy Shoppe. There is a lot of competition to get recognized when one sells jewelry. There are so many people selling jewelry. Recently we I had several gals from the Etsy Team look over my shoppe and give me an honest critique.

There were so many things I learned about Photograpy, Wording Descriptions and about SEO. I finally feel like I really have a handle on what will create a successful shoppe on Etsy. This is huge, because in person, my display is awesome, and people can pick things up. Shopping on line is a different story. I think more and more people are starting to shoppe on line, and its up to the store owner to make the process us easy as possible. This also means your photos and appeal must be exceptional because that can almost speak louder than the actual product does initially.One thing I did was retake most of my photos.  I was advised to get a background that helps the store look uniform. I like what I have come up with. I think it pops.

I am really excited about some of the latest additions to With Wild Abandon.  Check out these two gorgeously elegant Monet Peal Necklaces!





I have spent the last week or so working over the shoppe with a fine tooth comb. I have a new banner yeah, and will have two shoppes now.





Here is a sneak peak of some of the newest items listed.... I love them! I hope you do to.

You received some real good advice. I looked at both shops and I am impressed. I need to ask for critique of my shop but with things going on in my life right now, I don't know if I could handle an type of critique. Even one meant in the best possible way.
