Internet marketing, the act of making money online, is continuously changing.
Traffic methods that work last year might be dead this year.
Products that sold like hotcakes last Xmas might be a forgotten fad this year.
Google keeps updating its algorithm, this keeps all the SEO experts on their toes.
Facebook is always finding a way to make its platform more annoying.
Etsy went public on April 16, 2015. They’ve always been a for-profit business, but when you add in the pressure of shareholders to the mix, from that date forward, the leadership at Etsy has to keep coming up with new ways to make more money from their platform.
So, as an Etsy seller what do you need to embrace?
Etsy is going to keep changing, this is a fact.
How you react to these changes will impact your success going forward.
As a seller, you can’t fight the changes. In reality, you must realize, you are merely a guest on Etsy’s website.
So like we talked about last week, lose the ego and be one of the first sellers to embrace new changes.
Remember when Etsy first introduced Promoted Listings?
We’re you open to trying them out right away or did you wait and think about it? Or perhaps, you still aren’t using promoted listings…shame on you!
The early adopters of changes are always to ones who will reap the most benefits.
The main point I want you to take away from this Etsy tip, try not to view change as a negative.
I know it is a tough order to sell but do your best to keep an open mind, and try to brainstorm how you can use the changes to benefit you.
Be an early adopter.
