I think I am spread too thin.....

... I had a great thing going with Etsy for a while there. I mean, I opened up in June 2008 and I have 50 sales. Not too bad for me. It's been hard to get myself out there, but it's been good to me. I sterted to think that maybe if I opened other stores, that more sales would come in, you know, put yourself out there and they will come?

Well, I think that I tempted fate too much and it backfired, lol. I have not had a single sale on Etsy in over a month!

Then, after starting to use good ol' Google Analytics, I have discovered that Etsy is where I get all my traffic from anyway. For me, Etsy and my website are what I need to focus on. And I am going to!

I am closing the Artfire and 1000 Market stores. I don't need to worry about those. I am not getting any traffic really on either. I am going to focus on Etsy, website and Hyena Cart Congo. I mean, I got asked to be a part of The Spotted Box because of Etsy. My mind is running wild with stuff to add to the congo. Those are the places that I need to focus on and I am going to start now!

Wish me luck! I am also going to start featuring shops on Esty through all my "connections" that I have made......... Fun, fun, fun!

Oh and check out my website! I re-vamped it. It's not totally done but I think it looks a bit better! And I have prices now for everything at least, well, almost everything!

Love the new look of the site.

Sorry your not getting traffic elsewhere and are leaving AF. I will still see you on Etsy. I just opened a third shop over there. I may burn out like you soon :)

I think that is a great idea. Concentrate where you are getting the most exposure. Keeping up with all these sites can be exhausting. Don't wear yourself out! :)

I agree with Dorie. I think it's a good idea to stick where you're getting the most out there, you know? Love you!

I congratulate you for figuring out where most of your traffic is coming from! I need to check that out myself. Best of luck on your venture! You're already doing great!

I think you do AWESOME work! Sales are slow for everyone right now. I've noticed my Etsy drives sales to my dotcom too :). Have you had any sales on Artfire at all? I just started one yesterday. I thought what the heck, its free...
