Did you miss the first Holiday Boot Camp newsletter? You still have time to catch up — view it here!
This week's Boot Camp is all about offering the right product this holiday season. Take a step back and follow my directions below to set up your shop for success.
I challenge you to ponder your buyer, this season's trends and/or holiday must-haves. Use this information to brainstorm ideas for a new product (or line of products). Or think about what you already create that you can add more of. This new Etsy blog post will help get you there.
Advanced task: Head over to your Web Analytics reports. What items in your shop have the most page views and lowest bounce rates?
Make a Connection
Reach out to another Holiday Boot Camper. Send a convo to a seller whose shop catches your eye and ask them to be your Boot Camp partner. Each week, check in to see how you are doing and how you might push each other along. I have a feeling some of you might put this off, so I encourage you to do it right this second!
