Default Is it worth it??

To have both an Etsy and a website?

I put a lot of time and effort into my website and really work to make it (in my eyes) perfect. Getting traffic is the only thing I am struggling with.

My question is, do you ladies have both an Etsy and a website? Do you find you get better sales if you have both? Or do you find it's to much trouble to have both and just have one or the other??

TIA

I have both.

I get good traffic on my website, but also work hard at my Etsy. To me, Etsy is a way to advertise because the traffic is already there, and at .20 a listing its not too expensive.

I have a spot in checkout on my website asking how the customer found my site and I've had multiple customers say they found me through Etsy.

Ok. My question is how do they find your site addy through Etsy?? Isn't promoting your site against their terms or something like that??

I've been meaning to read the rules again. It probably isn't correct.

So do you post your site addy on yours?? I really don't see the harm in doing that.

About how many items do you have listed on there? I know they say that the more you have the better. It just gets hard to keep up with it sometimes when you have a website and FB fan page too. lol

I do have my website listed on Etsy.

I have about 70 things listed right now and I renew or list something almost every day. It does get to be a lot - between Etsy, FB, and my site!

Well thank you for all the helpful info!! I am going to give it another try on Etsy and list more items, since that seems to be the best way to get people to look.
