I’ve been thinking for quite a while now whether to open up a store front on the ETSY website. I have two websites that require a good bit of my time and didn’t know whether another commitment was going to be good for my soul.
Well, after thinking long and hard about the committment and having made a few things that were just laying around the shop and the house, I’ve decided it was about time to try and move some of this stuff along. So…....I bit the bullet and opened up the new store front last week at: http://www.etsy.com/shop/OlDavesWoodshop
I just started out on the store with with five boxes that I have made in the past few months and one of them sold on the second day. We’ll have to wait and see if there is success to be had on this site. I intend to put up a few more things, but I want to get behind the scenes and see if I can build the traffic to this new site first. I have learned from building my two personal websites that traffic is everything.
Have any of you taken this plunge and been on ETSY for any length of time? What kind of successes have you had, if any?
