So instead of trying to do it all like and killing myself to keep up, I decided to work smarter and focus my energy on one hobby. By learning how to automate what I can and focus on the content I was putting out there.
I took a big leap into the unknown by not posting as much on my other social media and pretty much dropping off the face of the map on social media just so I could get a handle on my Etsy shop. And honestly, I feel like it was the best decision I’ve made. It gave me the clarity to fully focus my energy on growing and improving my business. Plus I feel like I’m juggling balls now and not drowning constantly in water like a wet noodle.
I’ve managed to increase my business by targeting keywords and doing research that Etsyrank helped me with. Think of Erank as that friend that keeps you in check, like hey did you misspell that? I got you! Did you post all nine pics? NO! DO IT! And while everyone wants to always know the get rich quick secrets. All I can say is HARD FUCKIN WORK and researching your niche.
But one tool that I found to be very useful in my growth is Erank aka Etsy Rank. It gives you more insight into your Ety shop in an organized manner and helps you improve your current content by letting you know what is missing, whether it’s photos or tags. It kind of helps you as a spot checker when you wish you could run things by someone. They spot the tiny things, that I tend to overlook and tells you what you could improve upon and that is only the icing on the cake.
Etsy Tip for Beginners
One of my favorite features on the dashboard has got to be it reminds me slightly of the Youtube Analytics Dashboard which gives you an overall picture of your shop. This is where I feel Etsy analytics falls short and could bring a lot more to the table.
I know they’re quite a few tools out there that do similar things. But in a sea of stuff on the internet, I thought I’d share what I found works.
