A little note

Thanks to everyone who commented the other day about my little experiment to spend $50 this month listing.

First, to clarify, my idea with this was not just to relist, but to push myself to add new designs every day, something I’ve notice most successful sellers do.

Second, when I said “try” to spend, I already knew it was going to be a long shot. As a matter of fact, I’m already way behind schedule, and I’m only a week in! I find it very doubtful I will reach $50, unless I pick up the pace an absurd (and entirely unrealistic) amount. It’s one of those conundrums: I can’t “quit my day job” because I don’t have enough time to craft and list – because of my day job!

But that isn’t really my goal anyways, I just want to push myself a bit and figure out what kind of marketing is really going to be successful for me. As someone pointed out last week, what works for one seller may not be right for another person or product!

So I will push on with the “experiment” as time allows and we’ll see what happens!

P.S. Speaking of new listings, I added a bunch of little ceramic buttons! Sooo cute!

  1. OK, now I’m off to add more listings to my website!!! Thanks for inspiring me ~

  2. Love the little buttons!!! I WANT THEM…LOL!!

    I’ll be reading more about your experiment with great interest! Being on Social Security, I have a very small fixed budget. I know sometimes you have to spend money to make money, but if you don’t have the money to spend……….. (sigh)

    But hey, I’m doing quite well with my regular site so there are really no complaints. I’ll get items in my Etsy shops someday soon!! 🙂
