Making Things Better

I'm working on trying to figure out what I can do to make my Etsy Shop better. By working on the pictures, redoing and improving the ones in desperate need of it. If anyone would like to give me some pointers or any comments on what needs to be improved or changed I would greatly appreciate it. You can check out my Etsy Shop at http://www.etsy.com/shop/ticc. If you have a moment, drop me a quick message. Thanks.

I would like to tell you that your post is a great source of comfort for me, because I'm in the same situation! I just opened my first Etsy shop and I'm feeling confused... I think a great source of inspiration and tips is the shop critique experience: in the Virtual Labs they do it every week (check this link http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/team-tip-shop-critiques-2753/).

The only advice I can give you is to try new ways of make photos: http://www.etsy.com/storque/how-to/shop-makeover-series-are-your-photos-frontpage-worthy-3178/

I hope I could help...

You have cute products, but all of your pictures are straight forward, straight on. Usually the pictures that do well (ie front page, treasuries) are shot at interesting angles and with clean, clear backgrounds. Have you tried photo editing software? There are some free ones - if you search the storque for "photos" you come to a story that has some free ones you can use that are very helpful.

Good luck!
