Default Critique My Etsy

Hey girls, I haven't been on much lately because of work, but I've been busy making some bows. I've never claimed to be the best bow maker so I know I have room to grow in that department. However, the ladies around here just love them, so I think they are "sellable". However, I haven't gotten any bites on my etsy. Granted the bows have only been up a few days, but I just knew that I would have sold at least one. Would some of you mind going to my etsy and looking at it to see where I could improve it? I have looked at many other "bow makers" etsy shops and looked to see what details they added about their products, their shipping policies and such to see how it's done. I'm wondering if I tagged them wrong, priced them too high, or maybe it's because I don't add a base bow to my stacked bows.....I DON'T KNOW! If you have time, stop by and help a sister out! Thanks!

I am still a little new to Etsy, But I think you need to add more tags to your items. You can add up to 14 tags. So like, Bows, Hairbows, clip, baby, accessories, and whatever that listing pertains too. Like if its a holiday bow, add that holiday to your tag. You can go back and edit your current listings to add more tags. Hope that helps!

Thanks for the site...I didn't think about putting hair and bow together AND separately!

People have called me Tara LOU since I was little....and more than one person. I guess those names just go together!

Your bows are great, but I find the zebra background too busy. It seems to compete with the prints on the ribbon. Just my opinion though.

Definitely use all your tags. I don't think you need to do hair bow and then hair and bow separately. I've tested it and it works either way.

Listing items everyday is important. Be a part of the forums or visit chat to get your name out there.
