serious business


here's a treasury i made for both the etsyLush team and the etsy success symposium, which i'll be tuning into tomorrow.  i've also been following a blog called etsy in real life.  malaika, who has a great sense of humor, has written a series of posts, starting here, about the business side of etsy which has helped inspire me to get even more serious about my etsy shop.  for some laughs and encouragement go check it out, it's a good read.

one thing i have noticed about my shop is that when i have a searchable item, such as a calendar, my shop gets much more traffic.  i've just listed a moleskine notebook with a hand drawn cover and just that word, moleskine, gets me views. 

so now i've got to figure out what words a customer would use to search for art. :)

here's the moleskine notebook with an illustrated cover in my shop



this is one of my inner constellations pieces in honor of the theme for the etsy success symposium :)

and here's to success, however you measure it.

I'm blushing at your kind words, Lisa. Thanks!

And I absolutely LOVE your notebook! Such great designs. Good luck on finding the right words to help your items get noticed. Finding just the right key word really does make a difference!

Blessings,
Malaika.
