I have had an etsy shop
for several years and, considering I have never paid for advertizing, I have done pretty well for myself.
I do all my own banner designs, packaging, photography...everything. It's hard to do everything yourself, but it's a lot more cost efficient. (I'm cheap.)
I really want to get more sales without resorting to paid advertizing, but it's kind of hard to have sales when your shop is so empty. Seriously, when did I stop making new items? Back in the early 2000's I had at least 60 different items, so logically I had more sales, not I have about a dozen and sales have become sluggish.
Long story short, I need to restock my shop. Rather than waste more money re-listing items that never sold in the first place, I want to revamp things and make tons of new items.
I have come up with a little challenge for myself.
