How to Succeed on Etsy During the Slow Months

I am very lucky to have my handmade beauty company Mojo Spa for over ten years and every year I found myself having a hard time dealing with the slow months of January, February, and March. One year I had an epiphany that changed the way I did business during these slow months.

First and foremost I asked myself how I could I get more traffic to my website during the slow months when people are not really shopping like they do during the holidays.

This did three things for my business:
