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.



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
