Last Day of 100 Sales 100 Days

It's been 100 days since I set my goal of 100 Sales 100 Days.

Ending Etsy Stats
Etsy sales - 55
Items sold - 83
Etsy Shop hearts - 135

I didn't make my goal, but I ended up with 55 sales this season and I worked hard for those sales this year. When Etsy changed to relevancy at the end of September my views and sales crashed. October was a tough month I only had 4 sales.

At the end of October I received a message from a fellow Etsy seller with tips for helping my shop come up in searches. I have spent weeks (and I'm still working on it) changing all my titles and tags.

Thanks to her tips and ideas, I started making these changes and my views tripled. In November I got 22 sales, which is more then last year for that month. So it has been worth all the work.

All in all it was not a bad holiday season on Etsy. I did reach one of the big goals I set for myself at the beginning of the year of getting over 700 items sold. I made that goal, and I am thrilled.

2011 Show Display
It has been a very busy selling season outside of Etsy this year.  I had six shows this season and at my first shows I sold over 75% of my inventory. I have spent the last 4 weeks making jewelry like a mad women just trying to keep up with all my shows and Etsy sales.

Tomorrow is my last day of me being the crazy jewelry making lady. I am looking forward to taking a break. I plan to spend my days reading, preparing for my family coming for the holidays, and planning for 2012. Maybe I will start 100 Sales in 100 Days in the spring, and try again.

Did you do as well as you planned this season?

  1. That's great the tips helped with views. Congrats on making your year's goal! Seems if search wasn't fiddled with so often, or/and worked better there would be better views and sales for everyone, even with a tight economy people still shop.

    Have a really Happy Christmas!
