100th Sale on Etsy!!!

Yay!! I hit my 100th sale on Etsy yesterday!!! Thank you to all my lovely customers.

I started Daffysdream in 2010 exploring the domestic market through Friends, Family, Exhibition, EBay, Facebook and Blog. Although I registered on Etsy in the same year, actually I didn't start selling till Sept 2011.  I did a lot of research on the international market and shipping.  September 2011 I got the confidence to sell on Etsy, wherein my sale on the domestic market was ample.   I was so excited when I made my First sale on Etsy within a few days.  The second sale happened after a month(my friend told me selling on Etsy- International market is very difficult). I took it has a challenge, soon I realized listing the new items on Etsy will not help my sale.  The competition on Etsy is very aggressive.  There are more 500000 search results for the term - "bag and purse". To get noticed among other etsy seller's was very difficult as there is so much of competition.  I did some research and read through the entire Seller handbook on Etsy which is very handy. Sell something you love is a great motivation, but I wanted to sell something different which will stand out from the crowd.  Along with the introducing new products , I improved my Photograph, SEO, Listing and joined the Etsy team and outside networks.   Little hard work and positive attitude did help my sale within a few months.  

Etsy is a beautiful online platform to sell my craftsmanship to worldwide.  I absolutely love Etsy!! There is a lot to learn about business and marketing; my tips is do not get frustrated on your business journey. Everyday I get inspired by Other Etsy shop and Blog friend.
Thanks again for all your love and support.
