Default Anyone willing to...

Hello! I am just getting up and running to sell and was wondering if a few people would be willing to look at my etsy site and give me feedback on prices I have set. Do I have stuff too high..too low?? Does my product look ok so far? Any advice would be appreciated! I have sold a few things already and LOTS more to make...soo excited! Thanks!!!

Just a few things I noticed -

* http://www.etsy.com/view_listing.php...ng_id=32051551 This actually the back side of the bow. The front is the side where the ribbons intersect in an X

* Get a profile picture and fill out your profile

* Try to use up all your photo slots for each item. Take a picture from the side, the back, really close up, on a model, etc.

I dont see a point of listing each headband separately. I would do one listing and take a picture of all of your headbands and let the customer choose the color.

I personally dont list items that cost so little, you dont get any profit of it. I always combine items so I get to pay less listing fees.
Make a set of 5 of your bitty bows and list them for $10. That way you only get to pay .20 cents for listing instead of $1.00
Make a set of clippies too. I think $1.50 is too high for lined clippie. But that just me. I sell them for $1.00 each.
I see that you already done some of things I said before. Did it work?
Those are just mine two cents, how I would do.

I just looked quickly, but on your onesies, I wouldn't say you used an iron on embellishment. I would just leave out the term "iron on". It makes one think they can just do it themselves.. Just a suggestion

agreed, as well as a short shop announcement.

I see what's being said here, and theoretically I agree, however it is not "Etsy legal" to have multiple items listed to let a buyer choose one, UNLESS it is custom made and they need to choose a color or something. I've been flagged and contacted by Etsy for doing it As suggested, you could group items together as sets though and get more profit for the one listing

Your crochet headbands are tagged incorrectly. They are commercially made and should have supplies, commercial first before any other tags. The way they are now will have them appear in the handmade category search where they do not belong.

Yep, not handmade, must be in tagged first as "supply", then "commercial".

i once read in the forums that anything under $2, you aren't making any profit. because of the cost to list, the percentage etsy takes after you sell and the percentage paypal takes, plus the cost of supplies. it isn't worth it, so i agree to group some of your items together.
