The First Sale

The First Sale

I just had my very first sale on Etsy. It may not seem like a huge deal, but when I saw the email confirming that receipt, it gave me that extra little push to really try and get more sales.

Locally
It is good to try and push sales locally - whether it be hanging fliers in laundromats or small ads in the newspaper. Offering your goods at local shops .. especially if it's a touristy area is a smart way also.
Internet
Getting exposure online is also important - I'm learning. Here is a great link from Etsy explaining the ins and outs of internet exposure:

Well, those are my insights for the night. Happy creating!
Sladke sny! (czech for 'sweet dreams')
