Ready For Inspection!
« on: August 21, 2012, 02:31:26 PM »
Ok....So I'm finally ready with my earring shop! I've agonised and cropped and resized till the cows came home!
Please take a look at my shop and let me know what you think... my earrings are all sterling silver for $20 or $23 for 14K gold filled.  All can have the posts replaced with sterling or 14K french wires if preferred and there are a few in the Sale bin too!

Thanks so much, and I look forward to meeting you all!

Lise

Great photos, great earrings.  You have a varied selection of beads to use.  Some I have never seen before.  Do you do your own lampwork and polymer clay?   WOW.  that about sums it up for me.

Thanks Girls...... 

I look in all sorts of places for my beads and have by default the most enormous collection......  luckily I've kept it all listed on a spreadsheet!

I looked at your shop here and was glad to see that your bio and policies are complete and that you have an avatar and a banner.  Your thumbnails are beautiful, too.  So I started looking at individual items.

I picked the sterling earrings section and only looked at the first three items.  In the first two, there are only two pictures and only one of the pictures are of the earrings.  The second picture in each is a completely different item (one is a knit scarf and the other looks to be a crochet choker or collar).  The third pair I looked at only had a single picture of the earrings.  I know how hard it can be to have multiple pictures of some items...  how many angles are there on a pair of earrings after all.  But you really need more pictures of each item.  I've seen earrings hung on the side of a glass or cup for example.  Or add a prop to show size like a quarter or a ruler.

Your descriptions are okay but could be more conversational, including the length and weight of the earrings.

Hope this helps!

Thanks Sandi for looking and I value your comments

I've only ever done one of photo of earrings and usually three of bracelets and necklaces - earrings are pretty much , well just earrings!  Adding the weight is a good idea, I forget that most people do not know anything about beads...so that is good info.

The other items on some items are a cross promotion programme that I am running with Anne from Oaklies Fashions, she has some of her items with my items too...... we do this most years and it does bring extra traffic....

I've been selling now for 9 years and there is still so much to learn......thanks again

The banner is great, and I love that professional white back ground you have achieved for your pictures.  The shop looks great and you have a nice section of items.  Very well done.  Your presentation works very well.

Thanks all..... I'm expanding the shop now to all my items... it's a long slow process re-doing all my photos, my mind is whirring and my eyes are glazing over. 
Also meant to be making newbies for upcoming fairs........arghhhhhhhhh.......

Anyone have a spare pair of hands and a brain they can lend me?

I know what you mean about spare hands and brain.  I could use a photographer for just one day.  Get it all re-done once and for all and then move on.  I just don't like taking the photos because I am never satisfied and well that's cause I don't do such a good job.  :laugh: :laugh:
