Moving To Etsy!

I’m just in the process of moving all of the jewellery from my website to my new Etsy shop, plus gradually adding over 30 new designs too (yay!).
I hope you like the layout – plus I’ve retaken ALL of the photos again because the others were frankly quite terrible! That photography lark is harder than it looks 🙂
Also, I’ve decided to have FREE shipping to anywhere in the world, since I love it when shops have that haha

Making & Selling Handmade

I’ve just made a new page all about making and selling handmade products on the web, and I hope you’ll find it useful!

I have listed all the best links on where to sell handmade items, tips for selling, and great advice on everything from packaging to advertising and branding to marketing. Some of it is specific to selling jewellery, and specific to selling on Etsy, but all the information can still be used for whatever you are selling online.

How To Have A Successful Business

Whilst researching for my own online shop, I came across alot of excellent tips and tricks of the trade, plus what the most important factors are for running a successful business.
Alot of the links below are specific to Etsy businesses, but there are also ones for other selling businesses too. Hope you find this helpful!

Importance of Packaging

Best of my tips: Concentrate on getting nice and clear photos, have some unique products (find a niche), create pretty but simple and consistent packaging, have a memorable name and logo, use Metatag Analyser on each website page to check your meta tags and descriptions are search-engine friendly, use Project Wonderful if you want to advertise on other sites, approach suitable blogs to try and get your shop featured, have regularly updated information and perhaps tutorials on your website to try and drive traffic to it, and lastly (if you have good photos) submit your products on Craft Gawker.
