A lot of you seemed to be interested in an update about my Etsy Experiment. For a few days I listed, relisted, or renewed about 5 items a day.
My conclusion: It didn't work.
I think it will work if you're in the right time zone, but unfortunately Central European Time is not that time zone. I can list all I want during "my" day, but as soon as it's afternoon in the US, and I go to bed, many many listings will cover mine, so it's all buried again anyway.
I don't know if anyone from Europe has tried before, and how it worked out for them, but promoting off-etsy and on the forums definitely works better for me.
I have made a few sales this week, all of them to new Etsians, which also leads me to believe that I should concentrate on off-Etsy promoting. I already did, because of my web shop, but I think it also benefits my Etsy shop more than listing several items a day.
Iiiiiiiiek at what my Etsy bill is going to be this month though! HELP! Ah well, at least I got to list all my pretty new earrings and pendants!
