Not everyone waste time

Not everyone waste time After my post yesterday about time wasting, I’ve had the complete opposite today. In my Etsy store someone messaged me asking about one of my items and it there could be a small change and asked if it would be possible. With having the Etsy app I was able to get back to the lady within minutes of her sending a message. That really is the beauty of the app I can get back to someone very quickly and I’ve gained more orders in doing so. After a few messages later, I gained a large order YAY.

Good question, I don't know, but it must be getting close to maybe 500. In December it went silly with sales of them and I'm sure it will be this Easter too.

@MALUSE 20 minutes is a good time, I have knitted them in less time. I do often time myself making them. I can knit 3 within an hour, never knitted before, but have been close. There is only 16 rows unless they buy ones with a letter on then it's a few more rows, The Christmas tree egg cosies do take longer because there are make differently and so do the sleep cap egg cosies.

Thank you, If you do get onto Etsy and start selling and you have a smartphone use the Etsy app, it's awesome, you can be in touch with someone who could well be your next customer. I'm sure it's helped me so many times over the last years with sales being in touch with someone if they have any questions about your items.

Thank you, I think the app amazing, within minutes I can get back to someone if they have any questions, it made it much easier and I'm sure that everyone who does use the app will say the same, they have gained more orders from using/having the app.

When you get back fast they know that you are interested and that helps your sales.

That's wonderful. Those little egg caps or warmers are absolutely adorable. I love Etsy too, it is a terrific online site to sell you handmade items.

I don't think I even knew there is an app. I'm working on a rather large special order and sure crossing my fingers that she doesn't change her mind once I finally get it done as it will take me many months to finish it....she wants around the end of November but ordered at Christmas this last year. I am keeping in touch with her on m progress.
