I entered in the price… a little ashamed of how low it was, but nothing else was working.
Publish listing, pay the $.20 listing fee, click and done.
Now I sit back and wait.
and keep waiting.
After weeks and weeks the listing never sold.
I’ve published over 1,000 listings on my shop, and the sad ugly truth is that most of the listings I published felt like that.
I’d spend hours creating a great product, bust my butt taking good pictures, and spend lots of time to create the listing.
There were times I cried in frustration over the amount of time I wasted doing this, but I didn’t know what else to do.
I would publish listings that were as good as anyone else's, price them 50% less than the competition… and still make NO sales.
Then I would look at the competition, notice they had 9 new sales from that day and just feel defeated.
What was wrong with my products?
Why weren’t they good enough?
Why aren’t I good enough?
I saw this quote when I felt like there was no where lower I could go with my shop.
I started to read books about sales and marketing, I snooped other Etsy shops and determined to myself that I was going to find a way to be successful on Etsy.
One of the best books I read about marketing was written by Dan Kennedy.
I was so pumped and inspired, taking notes, nodding my head enthusiastically with each turn of the page.
I sat back down at my desk and poured my heart into my Etsy listings, tweaking this, changing that, adjusting the prices etc, etc.
I even uploaded a bunch of listings that I had left unlisted because I didn’t want to upload more failures.
Then I sat back and waited… praying that my heart wouldn’t be crushed all over again with more defeat.
The sales started to come in.
They really did, I could hardly believe it!
A wave of relief came over me and I was finally able to relax.
Our listings views turned into sales which turned into raving 5 star reviews.
I decided to write down my exact formula for creating a successful listing to make sure I would never forget it.
Then I took the formula and gave it to my friends and sister who were also Etsy sellers.
Now their Etsy shops were a little more successful than mine was out of the gate so they were a little skeptical that they needed it at all, but they decided to give it a try anyways.
I was worried.
Was it a fluke?
What if it fails and their sales actually go down?
Crud, maybe I shouldn’t have shared it with them at all.
Whew! Another sigh of relief.
It wasn’t a fluke!
I felt like I had struck gold.
My Etsy shop has made almost $400,000 due to the success of this formula.
That’s why I call it my $400,000 Etsy Listing Formula.
Let me ask you a question.
And because of that belief I’ve decided to share this formula with you and Etsy sellers everywhere.
Some people would be concerned to share this because they think they would just create more competition for themselves, but I don’t agree.
I believe that if others are successful then I’ll be more successful too.
This formula has the possibility of making a huge impact on the success of Etsy sellers everywhere, and I want to be a part of that.
