That's right! This weekend SRDS reached it's 300th sale! I never thought I would see the day where my shop would have that many sales. I would like to thank everyone that has supported me and my shop. Us Navy wives can't really get a regular 9-5 so it's such an amazing feeling to know that I can stay home with my kids as well as have an extra income. Thank you all again!
To celebrate 300 sales I wanted to share a coupon code to all of you lovely etsy shoppers. Use code 300SALECELEBRATION to get 10% off any order. This coupon is only good until January 12, 2011 so hurry up and get your set!
I also wanted to remind everyone that my shop will be on vacation starting around February 10th or so. I'm not sure exactly when I will be putting everything on hold. We still haven't heard back from the bank on our house so I will keep everyone updated on when the shop will be on vacation. I will probably have it on vaca for about 2 weeks or maybe more, I'm still undecided. I have a lot of re-working of my website and shop to do so we will see. It would be best if you are thinking about purchasing a set to do it now instead of later since I am unsure about how long I will be gone:) I will make sure I let all of you know though.
For today's tip I am going to write a little bit about blogging(and it's here, in my blog, haha!). All jokes aside, blogging is a great way to get the word out about your business. I like to use my blog to let possible customers know about upcoming sales, new items and even promotions. I love using my blog to help other sellers too and that is why I always add a tips and tricks section for new sellers. I've been using Etsy for about 2 years and when I first started out I was pretty clueless in comparison to now. I didn't use all of my tags when listing items for sale, I didn't blog, I didn't belong to a team. I just thought, hey I will list this item for sale and everyone will want it! Wrong-o. You have to use things like blogging, twitter and facebook to get your name out there. And now I am going to use my blog to show you some new designs I have made, yay for blogging!
