BUSINESS: New Etsy Shop Positive Words Artwork

Positive Words Artwork shop at Etsy

I recently opened at Etsy after sitting on my membership for years. I don't have any illusions about getting-rich-quick there. Been monitoring the changes and problems for years. Just something I decided to do to challenge myself, because the increasing problems there always repelled me when I considered opening.

My shop is PositiveWordsArtwork. It is a place where all things are motivational, inspirational, uplifting, encouraging and self-esteem building. It is a happy place, no matter what challenges may be happening in our lives, or out in the world.

I do love the Lord, so some products feature scriptures and other Christian sentiments, but not all. If you are not a person who lives by faith, I still have many products that you would like.

So much has changed at Etsy with the algorithms for search, which have made being found so difficult now for true handmades sellers. The sellers who are allowed to consistently use additional makers for their shops are such an unfair challenge for single-maker, handmades shops.

I read at eCommerceBytes today that Etsy's CEO, "Silverman said Etsy does boost new shops and new listings in relevant search for a very brief time to give them a chance to be seen." This was in response to sellers' questions about giving new shops an unfair advantage.

He stated that after the initial boost, the new shops' listings fall back into rank with established sellers. Maybe I've gotten a little newbie boost to help POSITIVE WORDS ARTWORK become more visible. I'll take what I can get and be grateful for it!

What helped me to decide to take this plunge is that I finally developed a brand that I feel is specific enough to hold its own among all of the competition there, but which is flexible enough for me to add a wide variety of new products. This is important because I am a prolific creator who uses a myriad of media and techniques to create crafted items, artwork, digital and graphics, published products, and creative services.

To be successful at Etsy today, I believe you have to focus on creating for a niche market by developing a specialized brand, but one that is also expandable. Being able to diversify is crucial to obtaining an edge anywhere in the increasingly, fiercely competitive handmades market.

I want you to be happy with your experience at POSITIVE WORDS ARTWORK, so satisfaction is guaranteed. Support handmades sellers like me. BUY HANDMADE first, before you buy anything else. The creation and making of my products reflects the right of every capable, skilled, independent creative to generate income. We do this by creating products that are decorative and/or useful, and that make people happy.
