How to Double Your Etsy Sales in the 4th Quarter


***Just an update….. not bragging here!! but I have already had 51 sales in October… up from only a dismal 10 sales in September. Using Google Analytics to track my traffic  to my shop I have seen an increase of  56% and my bounce rate is 49%. 17% of my visits are new, and that is what I want to see. New customers means more connections!***
Fall is here, it’s the fourth, and it is getting cold around here.I personally love this time of year. The colors are amazing and the holiday shopping season is ramping up. I am excited and it is time to kick it into high gear!!!
During the holiday shopping season, my sales triple. This year I want to double that number. With the help of a great new Etsy app called “Etsy On Sale”, I am well on my way to making double the amount of sales this holiday season.
In fact, with the process I am about to walk you through, I have already increased my sales this month by 90%.
This year, the way I am going to double my holiday sales is to run sales events throughout the shopping season. When people are shopping, they are not only looking for unique gifts, they are also looking to save some money.
“Etsy On Sale” allows you to put your items in your Etsy shop on sale. The great thing about this app is that it is all automated. Oh…and it is completely free! http://etsyonsale.com
Learning what type of sales shoppers are looking for
is the first step.
I have done some research and also put together a how-to on researching different sales you can run in your Etsy shop.
After you decide what type of sale you are running it is time to start your sale. “Etsy On Sale” has made this process so easy.
Now you may be saying… ” I am running a sale in
my Etsy shop, but no one knows about it”. I have that covered for you.
Here are the exact steps I used to get the word out about my sale, and create a buzz at the same time!
I hope you have a successful fourth quarter and your holiday season is full of sales!
