More Falling Leaves Pins – Is Selling Online a Good Choice?

Tuesday, November 9, 2010
It’s only been one day and I’m having doubts about my decision to list these pins online at my shop.
shop at tamdoll.etsy.com
I have a local venue to sell at, but would have to adjust pricing to make up for the store commission.  Not wanting to make these priced too high, I’m listing them online (finishing up with the last two this afternoon, seen below).

Is Etsy too saturated for anyone to notice these?  Am I missing out on potential sales?  I’m not sure.

  1. Your pins are just lovely! Why not put a few up at Etsy and a few at the local shop and see what happens? Etsy is like any other online shop, you have to really advertise yourself via as many avenues as possible. It is harder to be noticed on there nowadays, there are so many sellers. Good luck with them :)

  2. Thanks Judy! I just don't want to have to compete against the local shop - if I sell there, I will take a loss, if I raise my price to sell there, will be competing. Maybe I'll see how they do for November online and then in December, move them locally.

  6. If you upped the price to $12 could you make money at the local shop?
    Pricing can be so tricky!
    I think Judi had a good idea to do 1/2 on Etsy and 1/2 local and see which ones sell faster. I don't think Etsy is probably competition for the local shop.
