Are You Frustrated With Etsy? Take Control!

I see a lot of people frustrated with Etsy. They are frustrated by resellers, copyright violators, people that price too low, scammers, low sales, and on and on it goes.

Number one stop worrying about what other Etsy stores are doing!! Yeah it sucks and I hate resellers too. But at the end of the day you can only control YOUR Etsy store. You cannot control what Etsy or other shops do. But you can control your reaction to it.

Stop wasting energy on what other shops are doing or even what Etsy is or is not doing.

Take a good hard look at your store and spend your energy making it the best it can be. Take time to put in SEO. Take better pictures. Tweak your product descriptions, use the Google keyword tool and try some new tags.

It's not enough anymore to just make great items if you want to sell online. You have to educate yourself on marketing, web design, search engine optimization etc etc.

Take it one at a time and don't get overwhelmed.

Remember an Etsy store, blog or website is never DONE. Its just a work in progress.
