Hi Yana,


Jewerly is a tough niche.  Rewarding when you get successful but the startup is tough.


Use Pinterest! Its a handmade seller's best friend.

me and bibi became obsessed with taking better and better pictures.


It turned into a competition between each other that lasted 2 years. She finally won.


Relying on professional photographers might not work either. We've hired 3 'pros' to find that we like our pictures better than the ones they take for us.


Getting an entry level Canon, 1.8 product lens, set up a consist background (part of your branding) and start clicking.


When we joined Etsy, everyone in our niche took different pictures.


We were the 1st to take pictures on a rustic, wood surface.


Now 4 years later, everyone copied us, but hey, if it works, copy them.

Hi,


Sorry in advance if this is a silly question.


Do you need a separate login to leave comments on blog posts, i.e different than my forum login?


When I go to leave a comment, it takes me to the wordpress login page.

Selling online is a constant battle.


Our Etsy shop was very lucky but in a lot ways we made our own luck.


My #1 advice to shop owners who are struggling, take better pictures. Then take more, and more and more pictures.


Customers buy pictures, not products.  Don't spend 3+ hours making an amazing handcrafted item, and only spend 60 seconds taking a picture.  Bibi (my wife) will spend a full day on one listing, taking and editing the pictures.

Hi, my name is Kelly, from JooJoobs.


My family and I make handmade leather wallets.  We mainly sell our products on Etsy and our website.


I found your forum and thought it would be a great place to network with other like minded folks.


Kindest Regards
Kelly
