What is in your window?


As I drove by a downtown boutique this morning, something frilly caught my eye. I drive by there every morning, and I always look. Sometimes I wonder why they chose that black dress. Sometimes I am disappointed that they haven't changed their display. This morning, when I found it attractive, it hit me. The featured items in my shop need to be changed daily! Maybe the black dress is their best seller, but having it in the window every morning doesn't draw me in. How many people have not come in to my online shop because I didn't catch them at the window? How many people have wondered why I haven't changed my window? I love it when I find something simple I can do to move forward and make my shop better. Don't you?

It is such a hard decision to make when it comes to featuring items in your etsy shop. Do people really come back that often? If they do are they after something specific or are they browsing for something new? All our problems would be solved if we could have the featured items shuffled every time for those of use that always forget to make changes.

Are you talking about the top three items....or the banner? Great tip!

I am talking about the featured items. I guess I made it a little confusing by using my banner to illustrate the post. I think of the banner as the awning on my shop and the three featured items as the window.

Excellent point! I'm always looking for something more to do to make my shop better and this is a great idea-and so quick and easy to do too.
Thanks Cherie!
