Listing and re-listing is the only way to effectively sell on Etsy or you get buried in the back pages. I may re-list everyday for a week before I get a sale for my trouble, but the cost to do this is insignificant.

It helps to also drive traffic to your Etsy store using all the free services like Twitter and Facebook pages. You can set everything up to update those sites every time you list an item on Etsy. Some of my sales come from Twitter users and my largest lazy susan sale (30” walnut) came from someone who saw my work on Facebook.

I talk about this in my Online R Us series.

One thing about it is you can’t sell online if you don’t start somewhere. You have a good start Larry. My start three years ago resulted in one sale every 3 or 4 months. But, rather than get frustrated and quit, I kept at it and now have good consistent sales.
