The common mistakes of Etsy sellers

Most of the time, sellers on Etsy are more experienced and seasoned in their craft than presenting their crafts. But the core point is what looks good on Etsy grabs more attention and sells more. This is true for every marketplace. Here are some more points that you should consider when listing your Home Decor category products on Etsy to increase holiday sales.

1. Use of images

An image speaks more than a thousand words, so when you take a picture of your product for Etsy, you need to ensure you portray the product correctly. Along with that, keeping thoughts about the lighting conditions, background, image quality, etc will have an impact on your sales. You can list a product with up to 10 images on Etsy, make sure to use that facility.

2. Use of Tags

Etsy allows you to enter up to 13 tags per product. As tags work like keywords for Etsy search results, you should be a bit creative while using tags on your products. Think of your product tags as the alternative search keywords that a buyer will use to search for your products on Etsy.

3. Use of Description

Most of the sellers only use this section to describe the product that they are selling. But what is in it from the buyer’s perspective? If you’ve already sold the product in Etsy or elsewhere, you can use the product description to answer the most common questions about your products.
