How to Make Your First Etsy Sale

How to Make Your First Etsy Sale

You did it! You set up your Etsy shop, added some cool info, and listed a few items.

Now what?

You wait… and wait. It can be frustrating when your items come up for renewal but still no sales. You want to sell your creations but don’t want to keep paying the $0.20 if no one is buying.

That’s what happened to me. When I first set up my Etsy shop, I completely forgot about it. Nothing was selling, but I didn’t bother checking to see if I could update images, tags, or beef up my descriptions at all.

Why isn’t anyone buying my stuff? I wondered.

The thing is, people will buy your product. You just have to figure out how to market it to the right buyers.
