« Part 33: Deciding which products to put on ETSY Part 34 of ScrollSaw Information and Resources series Part 35: Wood Gloat »

As part of my decision to put some products on ETSY i did a little test. I choose three products, all clocks but a different designs. I E-Mailed pictures of all three to freinds of mine and ask the to choose one that they might take a second look at or be somewhat interested in IF they were surfing a WEB Site and saw them.

The results:

Clock A got 2 votes

Clock B got 2 votes

Clock C got (you guessed it) 2 votes.

WELL I guess that helped my decisions process a lot.

If you can get good pictures of all of the clocks, I say post all of them. I think it is important to show customers that you have lots to offer and show the variety of things that you can make.
I have some projects that look great, but photograph poorly. I am not a photographer, but some times I get lucky. I won’t bother posting projects that don’t photograph well, the photos sell the item.

I don’t have any experience online, but what I have been finding with selling my pens around here, is that it’s very hard to predict what potential customers would be interested in. I find the acrylic colors that were the least tasteful to me were the ones to attract the most attention. They were the first ones picked up by customers.
