Hooray! My Etsy shop has been open for nearly one month now, and it has been more fun than I could ever imagine.
First of all, I have had so much fun making crochet bowls, baskets and necklaces to stock it with. It is what I love to do, and now I have found a whole new purpose in doing it for my business.
Secondly, I have had the privilege of learning how to set up and run an online crafts shop. These few weeks I have started learning about product photography, writing item descriptions, producing shop policies, attracting potential customers to my shop by the means of advertising and clever search engine optimisation.
Thirdly, and most importantly, I have had over one hundred people visiting my shop from more than ten different countries around the world. Some of them tell me that they like what they see, and a few of them even want to by my products. I am so excited!
