This week I have a lot to share! I am finally going to start doing my weekly Etsy tips and tricks post. I put my weekly blogging on the back burner while I was going through the process of re-branding my shop and making the move over here to wordpress. Also, I will be closing my other website this week so for any future reference you can visit me here at my new virtual home:)
This weeks tip is utilizing one of the newest and best features Etsy has to offer; Shop Stats. You can view your stats by logging in to your Etsy account. Look in the upper left hand corner and hover your mouse point over where it says, “Your Account” and choose,”Shop Stats.” Here you can view your Shop views and listing views, shop and listing favorites, orders and revenue. These are all very helpful pieces of information. You can also click on the drop down menu and view all of the past information.
My absolute favorite part of the Etsy Stats page is the Top Traffic Sources. The Top Traffic Source tells you where your traffic is coming from as well as the views. This is really important because you can see whether or not that advertising that you paid for is really paying off.
I really love how far Etsy has come. When I started out in 2008 there weren’t many resources to help you expand your business. In the next post I will be discussing resources as well as Etsy apps that can help you grow your business.
Coming soon: Paypal banners. I will be making a made to match listing for paypal banners. You can upload these to your paypal account and brand your business further when you send out invoices.
Also, I will now only be using vistaprint templates when I desisn a product. I will still accept custom sizes for orders but the initial product will be made with a vistaprint template. The reason I use them is if you sign up for their e-mails you can get a TON of free products and only have to pay for shipping. I use them for my business printing needs and the quality is great, I can’t say enough good things about them! The process is very easy as well.
This concludes today’s post. I am so happy to be back blogging again! Thank you to all of those that subscribe, I really appreciate it:)
Also, don’t forget tomorrow is the last day to get a FREE holiday shop set with any regularly priced shop set purchase.
