It's times like these I'm glad I don't have Brink-and-Mortar Shop

Well it's been 5 days since I've had a sale in my Etsy shop. I looked back at my stats and found I haven't went that long with out a sale Since May of last year...  I've tried analyzing the reasons why the lack of sales, I've Phoned a friend, Phoned Home mostly to wine and have someone tell me it will be OK.  I've even thought about Group Therapy or even going on a Vacation to get away.

I've searched for inspiration, tried smudging (burning white sage), Searched Etsy for answers, Read more about Google and SEO.

The only thing different that I have done is change the name of my Etsy Shop in the past 30 days.  I am under the impression that Etsy would direct traffic to my shop for 45 days if anyone used the direct link so That doesn't explain the lack of sales either, and anyway my views haven't went down just the sales. 

So I've decided to do the only thing I can do..... Light some incense, do some Positive affirmations and start my Spring Cleaning......  and remember what my mother always said  "a watched pot never boils".

So it's times like these I'm Thankful I don't have a Brick-&-Mortar shop........

This is just a little time for you to rest and replenish for the massive and abundant flow of sales you will have in the next couple of weeks....I believe this is so...:)

This happened to me, I had a TERRIBLE February and March seemed be be turning out the same way. I looked at stats, read the Etsy forums. I was so dejected then whoosh, things began to improve last week and today I have had 3 sales, unheard of before. It will pick up again I am sure, keep promoting and listing. You have a great shop
