With etsy/other selling venues?  I'll be back later to check responses.


Ok.  So I had etsy already set up.  I sent ahead and set up a storenvy and facebook page.  What tips do you ladies have for marketing, keeping up inventory and whatnot?

Storenvy.com

Great platform that allows you to fully customize your shop. The admin panel is simple to use and there is a great network of support. Their staff is quick to reply to any issues as well.

Storenvy.com! I have been selling on there three years! I love it - it is entirely free to use, totally customizable, easy to learn, products are ranked in real time popularity allowing for higher visibility in search engines& the admin team is very hands on and easy to access with questions or problems. I run the Storenvy users community facebook group and it is a great resource for those just starting out on the platform to network.

What do you make?

I also use Storenvy.com - I sell my wholesale things on there as well as my retail pre-orders. I love that I could customize it!! PLUS it's free to use!!

I use etsy as well, and have done well, but storenvy is my #1 choice.

Right now bracelets and earrings.  I have plans to make purses and stuffed animals as well.

I could use advice as well.

I've had a storenvy for month with no luck.  

I feel like I'm doing something wrong with my businesses

It takes a lot of hard work, the average business spends 40% of their time marketing!

I think that's my problem.  I've been open for a few years now.

I think I lack the knowledge needed when it comes to marketing.

Don't let it get you down! There are a lot of great resources out there to show you the way.

A quick google search for branding your business will give a lot of great tips.
