Well, on Friday something kind of cool happened. Another kind Etsian decided to feature one of my items in a treasury.
Normally, I am happy and very thankful to them for using my item in a treasury despite my old, dark, photography. But with this treasury feature, I was elated! Reason being, the curator of the treasury submitted it for consideration of the team over at the HGTV.com blog site. HGTV has started to do features of Etsy treasuries on their web blog. How cool would that be if this treasury were featured on the HGTV blog with my item within it! That would mean some major click through traffic and maybe some sales. I went to the HGTV blog and clicked through their link to see all of the submissions and the treasury I was featured in was on the first page!! Oh, yes, I was stoked.

But then I was instantly panicked. My store had all the 'old' photos still up and looked way amateur. Ugh... I didn't want people to visit my store and have it not look the best. It was then that I embarked on the three day face lift.
I am so glad that I did it. I redid all the pics and tweaked my descriptions and tags. Please take a moment to visit and check out the new 'look' of my Etsy shop.

In the end, the treasury I was featured in did not get chosen for the blog feature. Maybe next time. I did get several click throughs off the treasury and a few from the HGTV site, which was exciting to me! I am still so thankful that someone chose my sunny little General Electric kitchen clock for one of the HGTV treasury submissions, and it lit a fire under my tush to get the store revamped.

Awesome job! Those treasuries people create are always so gorgeous.ReplyDelete
The store looks fantastic! Great job.ReplyDelete
My wife uses customers as models and pays them with in store credit. These are usually the younger gen with a good look and fit well in vintage. Seems to work great as she sells worldwide. No high end camera, just a good eye and a little help from photoshop...ReplyDelete
The new store looks fantastic. Great job getting it all accomplished in one stretch! If we were on the same continent that biscuit tin would be mine!ReplyDelete
Thats so cool! I love your little studio! great idea!ReplyDelete
Hey Rachael! After reading this post, you should definitely do an Etsy showcase! Here is the link:ReplyDelete
You pay a fee ($7.00) and your items pop up in the top items in the search. It seems to work, I am sure it would work for you with all your nice new pictures!
Thanks for the nice blog. It was very useful for me. Keep sharing such ideas in the future as well. This was actually what I was looking for, and I am glad to came here! Thanks for sharing the such information with us.ReplyDelete
