Bulk Edit Your Etsy Listings With Vela

Good morning!

I just wanted to write a quick post to recommend an app I’ve been using for my Etsy shop – Vela.

Etsy apps are one of those things that:

1) I didn’t know existed until months after I opened my shop and

2) Keep forgetting they exist even now.

Etsy apps are not on your phone – they are desktop applications. (although some do have a mobile app that works with it).

You can find the list of Etsy approved apps here. Continue reading

My Morning Routine For My Etsy Shops

Firstly, let’s begin with the obvious. Not every morning is perfect and if you read this and think “wow, that’s organised!” or “man I can’t even think straight before 12pm” you are not alone. I’m right there with you. This is my morning routine WHEN everything is going to plan, I’m caffeinated and on the ball!

Secondly – I don’t usually start this routine until after I’ve dropped my daughters at school. To me it’s infinitely harder to try and concentrate on admin work when I’ve got “mummy where is my homework?”, “mummy, she stole my identical white sock!” and “mummy, she’s just poured coco pops all over her pristine uniform!”

Planning Ahead – What’s Next For Your Etsy Shop?

Hi everyone – I hope you’ve had a wonderful Christmas!

This is a different approach to blogging for me. I’m actually going to be doing the planning I’m writing about AS I do it. I think it’ll be helpful for me to describe the thought and reasoning behind my methods!

In this blog post I intend to break down the goals, objectives and ideas process that I’m going through for my Etsy shops! In front of me I have an A4 project book (one of those ones with tabbed sections) and I’m using it to separate goals and ideas for different aspects in my life.

The first section is “personal” so what I’m working on for me and my family. The other sections are labelled “Shop 1” “Shop 2” “Shop 3” “Blog” (If you’re wondering, yes I am mad enough to be launching my third Etsy shop this March 😉 ) I think it’ll be useful to have a hub of all of my ideas to look back on.
