Latest Etsy Listing, Anybody have any advice to boost sales on Etsy?

Just posted this little penny rug on Etsy.  I love the whole concept of Esty, handmade goods etc. but I have only been able to get one item sold so far.  I have a hard time getting my pictures to look good.  I watched the Etsy tutorial on taking pictures but I just can't seem to get the lighting to highlight my items in true colour and have a good exposure.  Guess I just have to play around with it some more.  I have the Etsy page, a webpage and now this blog page....now I guess I have to spend some time putting out the picture of taking lots of packages to the post office to send my work out to the world!

  1. The 2 things I have learned to get good pictures is natural lighting with no flash is always best, and a white background. If you are taking a picture up close, always use your macro setting (usually marked with a flower icon on most cameras).

    As for sales, I do a lot of advertising and promoting. Giveaways on popular blogs and paying popular blogs for advertising space get me more business.
