I’m not sure how I managed to pull it off, but I did it. I set a goal in January that if I did not reach 100 sales by February first, I was closing my etsy shop down for good. Well, as of Feb 1, I am at 109 sales! I started out at 60 sales in January and it took me two years to get that 60 sales.
Here are some things I did in January to gain those 49 sales.
- Etsy Teams: It was a pain in the ass to play those etsy promotion games. I joined about 10 teams and I also joined some promotion facebook groups. I played the games just about every day. Games like post one product then favorite five, favorite five shops above you, etc. It was exhausting.
- Gained 200 favorites (There is a rumor or urban legend if you can get over 200 shop favorites you rise in ranks in the SEO of Etsy search). That rumor may or may not be true. However, this may be the explanation as to why I gained so many sales in just 30 days.
- SEO. I revamped all of my titles and tags.
- Add more products. During January, I worked hard to build more products for my shop. I have just over 617 products that I sell on my etsy shop.

Looks like Free Printables is going to be open for another year.
