While I was in my Etsy shop, it seemed time to do some maintenance. I am trying to prune and get it spiffy... call it holiday prep... call it shop up-keep... I cleaned up the text on my listings last week. Today I went thru and listed a few things.
Heres what I did: I went into my shop and typed "Red" into the search field, looking at my listings by color showed me what I had overlooked. I went thru and uploaded what I could and also now I know there are a few pieces I need to photograph. By searching my shop for each color of the rainbow I was able to really fill in the gaps. It was a great way to look at my online catalog from a different perspective.
Last week I also pruned the Bike Nutz Etsy shop :) Now it looks all colorful and fun!!
Sometimes I just buckle down at the computer and get it done, happens at random times, but I quite enjoy it.
I like a colorful catalog. And I find that looking at things from a different perspective really sheds light onto a project in phenomenal ways. For a while I was using the "rearrange" feature in the Etsy catalog, which made me really know what I had listed and keep on top of things... but lately I have not been making the time. To save time, this little trick of searching my own catalog with their search engine was a quick opportunity to spiff up my shop and fill in the blanks!
