Summertime Sales Or Lack There Of

Hey gang. Not sure how much time I will have for regular postings but I will do my best to post as often as possible. As some of you may know I have been going through some personal issues as well as business issues. My partner moved away. It was not planned, at least on my end. So, I had to change the name of my brick and mortar shop. That meant paying for a lot of things all over again. Shop signs, new sales and use permit, new bank account, inspections and the like. That coupled with all the things that moved from my personal space has put me in a financial bind.

Sales were quite slow in June as expected but the first part of July has yet to show any improvement. Etsy is very slow for me as well. I normally receive 500 to 750 views a day. That number has dropped to 150ish for the last few weeks. Etsy has been working on some new shop views and my shop has been one of those test pages. I am not sure if that has anything to do with it or if everyone is just on vacation.

Anyhow, I would really like to hear how sales are for you for June and the beginning of July. Leave me a comment or email me at MarketMyShop@gmail.com
