I have been posting new necklaces on Etsy a lot lately, but have not had a great many views. Even fewer sales (only 1 so far.) To try to get more attention on my work, I have visited the Chat rooms the past few nights.
Last night I got brave and decided to ask the room why they thought my jewelry was not selling, specifically the "SEA GLASS" collection. I have been curious since I always sell out at my craft shows, but on Etsy I feel like the crickets are chirping.
One of my fellow chatters pointed out that they look like tumbled stained glass. In fact that is exactly what they are, and I make note of that in my descriptions that they are reproduction sea glass. He pointed out that not having it noted in the title may be why I have not had any sales. It makes me look like I trying to pull a fast one.
I was slightly affronted when I read that, but then I set back and thought about it for a second and realized that he was right. Even though I was being honest in the description, the title was a bit misleading. So I changed the title to reflect that it is reproduction sea glass. But now I have a feeling that there has to be a better marketing title for this collection. I just need to find it. If you have any suggestions I would love to hear them J
Wish me luck, I have some homework ahead of me.
