I'm SUPER excited to announce that I've taken the plunge and opened a second online shop! I still love Etsy and always will but I wanted to branch out a little more. I have been wanting to do this for some time but it got so time consuming and frustrating trying to find one that was cost effective and still worth it. I found this completely new selling site at I Support American which is for American sellers. I'm usually pretty weary of sites that are new since they don't yet have a big market and yadda yadda but everyone has to start somewhere and Etsy was new once upon a time too. Plus they had an offer I couldn't refuse. There are no commission fees, no listing fees and the membership fee is only $5/month. Simple and easy. I like that. However it gets better. I get FREE membership FOREVER as a promo which expires on Monday Feb 6th. All I had to do was set up shop and list 10 items. Easy enough! Over the weekend they're supposed to be adding an Etsy/Artfire uploader which is sweet! I figure I'll list things I have more than one of on the new site and things that I am tired of re-listing on Etsy can go there too as they expire thus saving me money on my Etsy bill. I know it will take time to build up the new shop just like it did to build my Etsy shop but after over a year selling online I have valuable knowledge of SEO and all that stuff for getting yourself out there. I'm just soooooo happy I can open another shop without it costing me a cent! Yay!! If you're also thinking of opening another shop, check it out! I will be busy over the weekend working in my new shop but if you want to see it now, you can see my new storefront here.
