Yesterday, I took the advice of many seasoned Etsy Seller's and ventured into the Forums. I checked out a couple of threads that I thought might apply to me and even made a few posts. Then, to my surprise, I came across a thread stating "OK...I'm sitting here if you want honest Critiques"! I have to admit, it definitely caught my attention.
I, as any curious individual would do, investigated the shop. Beautiful pictures, well designed page, and numerous sales. To sign up for a review from this individual was an easy sell. So I jumped on the band wagon and asked for their critique.
I must admit, I was pleasantly amazed to receive a response. Better yet, an honest reply with some positives and a few negatives including recommendations on how I could improve. I was treated to someone else's opinion on how I could better present my shop and all because they wanted to help others. I am so honoured that this person took the time out of promoting their business to try and assist myself and many others. I look forward to putting their suggestions to work.
It is easy to get caught up in the hustle and bustle of starting a new business or keeping a successful business running smoothly. Next time you find yourself with a few extra minutes, rather than day dreaming them away, try to put them to use giving someone else a boost. Someday you might be the lucky recipient of another person's words of wisdom.
A very SPECIAL thanks to SPELLitOUTbyLSudler for taking the time to critique me!
