Find out where you are at.

You have to start somewhere, so here is where I recommend anyone that wants to increase their business starts.

This probably seems a little silly.  You know your sales numbers.  You look at your page all the time, but there are other markers that you can check to see what is going on with your shop!  Some of this you may already know, if so, you can skip ahead.
Sales Stats
On your Etsy account page under Orders on the left side, is a place you can click and see what your stats are.  It will show you how many orders you have had per day, and how much in dollar sales.  The nice thing about this is, now you can look back and see if something you try to promote your shop works or not!!!  This is huge.  Nothing is worse than spending a bunch of time on something that isn’t helping.
Google Analytics
This is also available through etsy.  Google Analytics will tell you how many people have visited your shop every day, how many pages they look at, and what are your most popular pages.  They also have pretty graphs and stuff.   You can find this under the Options tab on your account page, then Web Analytics.  They walk you through the set up pretty well.
Etsy APPs
Lastly, at the bottom of the list on you accounts page is a section called etsy apps.  Some of them are REALLY cool.  Browse through and see if there is anything there that you think you would like, or could help you with your shop. 
If you have any questions about any of these steps, leave me a comment and I will help you!!
Hope you enjoy the rest of your week and I will be chatting with you all again soon.
