Etsy critique please!
 
Finally getting it together and opened an Etsy store. I've just started listing, but would like some feedback before I go further. Any and all suggestions welcome! Click on the banner below to go look :)

I think it looks good and the beads are lovely! My only comment would be to add something about shipping costs.
Good luck selling!!

You need more photos and the first photo should be something where they can see the beads well right away like this:


Customers will also want to see the flip side too.

Get rid of the glass names in the titles and instead use colors like green, blue, etc. Customers don't know glass names (or at least most don't) and won't search by that. Use colors in your tags too.

Crazy in Love should be entitled "Crazy in Love, Handmade Pink & White Lampwork Heart Focal Glass Bead" or something like that. Add the colors, shape, focal, handmade and lampwork in the tags. Use up all of your tags. You can combine words for tags too like "lampwork glass beads".

You need "handmade", "artisan", "sra" in your tags. Also "set" or "focal". For that tube focal I want to see it straight on and all the way around it, not just one view.

You say "Paypal only" but it looks like you take Etsy direct checkout so you should remove that.

You need to fill in your Policies page. There are buyers that won't buy if you don't have policies in place. You may not have gotten to it yet and planned to but I mention it because a lot of people leave it blank and people on the forums have a hissy about it and won't buy...just so you know.

Looks great, Alli! Congrats.

I am dying over these: https://www.etsy.com/ca/listing/2153..._home_active_2

I have no advice. I've had a non-working website and an Etsy shop with nothing in it for over two years.

*nods* This is exactly the type of info I need - Thank you Amy, and everyone else :)

Ok, finally found the policies section and filled it out. Added some more pics as well. What else am I missing??

Post a link here for extra love :)

Will do! Thanx :)

2DogsPhoto 2014-12-15 4:11pm

Yw, I figure since I screwed up and missed the shipping info I could at least help out this way :)

And the one you listed is my favorite set of beads :)

Just another thing that the Hothead does brilliantly - I can't get that reaction out of Elektra on the big kid torch!

Make sure you get in the habit of using your categories too. Even if you only have one or two for now, it will be helpful later when you have more than one page of listings.

Great beads. One thing that I would attempt to do, is make the pictures more similar. Use the same color background for the pictures. That way, it comes across more professional. To me, anyway.....

ETSY is constantly making changes to its search algorithm, which makes it hard to measure seo results. Right now I would work on creating nice readably title tags that are not stuffed with keywords. That way your shop would be found organically with google.
