My Etsy shop reached a pretty big milestone yesterday and hit 10,000 sales!!! I say this all the time but I can't believe how far my shop has come.
I remember when I first opened my Etsy shop, I would come home from work and sit on my laptop for hours working on it. I really worked hard advertising my shop on Facebook, hosting giveaways etc. I got my first sale after a few days and then another one, I actually think 3 came in at once; it was the best thing ever! I'd been working so hard on my shop that I hadn't worked out how I was actually going to print my cards. I had a little desktop printer that I had planned on using but when I printed my orders, they looked dreadful. I remember panicking and the next day rushed out to my local printer who printed them for me. Tip for any new sellers... Test your product!!!
Opening my Etsy shop was one of the best things I've ever done. It really made me feel amazing and it has been a HUGE learning curve. I'll be honest and let you know that its been incredibly stressful at times but now I'm pursuing a career that I absolutely love. I wouldn't have it any other way!
P.S Check out the August sale! Most items are 50% off and will be discontinued at the end of summer!!!!
