A few weeks ago, we were lucky enough to stumble into the etsy labs, while they were doing a store critique. Quite by accident, I seated myself in "critique row", and got a little store advice.
So, on the advice of the team, I am beginning to take more pics of our ACEO's. Previously, I had only scanned in and watermarked the cards, and uploaded that result as the etsy image. Today, using Marc's camera (because mine is a piece of garbage...) I began to take pics of a few. (Green Fairy, Japanese Cherry Blossom, and Tattoo Girl.) Using our typical Little Scotia backround, that we used to use for ebay (a creme crochet doily on a wood table, naturally lit.) I think I easily got the result I was hoping for. Now, I'm in for quite a bit of work, currently having 30 ACEO's in our shop at Little Scotia.
The advice I received when something like this:
*Too wordy. Condense our descriptions.
*Take pics of the ACEO's, and use natural lighting instead of the flash.
*Be sure to make shipping "worldwide" on the options.
*List something everyday.
That was pretty much the gist of it, and I'm so happy I fluked into the lab.
I hope this advice has helped you in your etsy craft endeavours!
