Another Etsy seller, KathyPanton recently posted a thread on the Etsy forums about her goals to increase business and get to a goal of 3 sales per day. I've been watching her shop and her sales really picked up - the primary change she made was a simple "buy 2 get 1 sale". Kathy creates artistic prints, entirely by hand using cut painted paper - very unique.
So I figured why not? I'll give that a try - I put up my own "buy 2 get 1" to run through Monday as an experiment. Depending on how it goes I can do it for longer or again - kind of fun knowing that I don't need anyone's approval to change the rules as I go! If few new customers find me as a result - great!
