After searching here it's been awhile since Etsy has been mentioned.  Alot has changed with how etsy works.  

I'm going into month 2 of my etsy store and I'm not sure I've got things set up right.   I'm only getting about 3-5 views a day and I'm paying for about half of those views by promoting listings.   I know it's a bit early to be expecting anything big but I was hoping for alittle more traffic and maybe 1 order for father's day.  

Would anyone be willing to coach me and give me some advice?  

Here's my store www.etsy.com/shop/GoCCreations

 

Any other selling platforms I should be thinking about?  I was thinking about maybe a website but I'm not sure I want to spend $30/month for one if I can't even get a single order on etsy.

I tried them twice and bailed because the juice just wasn’t worth the squeezing over there.   I know others that have done great but imho it is a crafters world there.

i May be wrong, been wrong before and figure I will be wrong several more times but just sharing my opinion

Just got a email that prices are going up on fees I set up a shop about a month ago but i didn't realize how cheap others were selling decals and shirts hard to compete with the others but what your selling custom signs look nice.

Any suggestions for other selling platforms.   Do you see my signs selling on Ebay?   I'm just not sure which way to go.

That's always been my problem.  I can make pretty cool products and everyone loves them. I just can't figure out how to sell them.

Yep just saw that email.   They jumped from 3.5% to 5%.  that's a pretty big jump and they tried to sugarcoat it by saying they're adding all these new features.   

But they didn't go into detail that these new features would require a monthly subscription.  Fun.

Where are you selling your goods now?

I have a free amazon pro merchant account, a Merch by Amazon account, Facebook, and I go to car shows, art shows and stuff like that now.  I also hoof it and talk to businesses and look at ones that have just filed for occupational licenses and State Business registrations and talk to them.
