I was very excited about opening my new online store!
I've created some great jewelry pieces, I took pictures from all angles, I edited them with my photoshop program, and finally, I posted them in my e-store!
I thought I did a great job! But, I figured I needed extra opinion, so I went to Etsy forums and asked other fellow etsians to take a look at my store and to tell me what they though. It didn't go to well. I had a lot of negative(but constructive) critiques!
My banner was bad ( I did it my self and I was proud of it!), my pictures were unfocused, blurry and dark; my background wasn't good ether!
They told me all the pictures should be in the same line, and they should tell the same story; they should be uniform when you look at all of them.
Bottom line everything I had done was wrong!
What a disappointment! Had to start all over again! New pictures, new banner, new background!
One very nice lady selling on Etsy helped me with banner. For a very small fee she did extraordinary job! She was very patient with me, too.
If you are in need of a custom made banner for your online store I really recommend this lady! She will do miracles:bohtieque.etsy.com
My banner looks great now, and tell the same story like my jewelry do.
I am still working on improving my pictures. It's hard and very time consuming!
But, when you have a website you need great pictures! After all, pictures sell your product!
I have a lot of work to do so, good bye!
