Well hello all!
Hope everyone has had a great Summer! Peridot is the beautiful birthstone for August, isn't it lovely!
It’s been a bit of a strange year this year regarding jewellery and I’m wondering quite why it’s so different to last year! My sales through Etsy were AMAZING last year but sadly this year they have changed their algorithms! This has meant a big drop in sales as they now favour sellers that sell to the U.S and offer free shipping. I made a decision to only sell to the U.K and Europe so my items are no longer found by customers!
In just a few weeks I have set up my website, complete with shopping cart. The right answer as now I can adjust the website whenever I want and am fully in control of it!
Yesterday my first sale went through and it all worked perfectly:)
I’M SO PLEASED WITH MYSELF!!! Ok it may not be as professional as others that have been produced by designers, but I’m happy with it and I will still continue to learn and tweak it! Now all I have to do is learn how to get higher in the searches…SEO or Search Engine Optimization is a whole other ballgame.
So lets hope I can get my website seen now! We will see how it goes. I would love to get my jewellery into another gallery so will be putting the feelers out to see if anyone likes my work. I’m slowly adding products to the shop. Hope you like them all!
So all thats left to say is I hope you enjoy the rest of the Summer, it’s starting to feel Autumnal already! Can you believe it! XXX
