I am still considering what to do with my Etsy stores. They are on Vacation mode, while I consider. They have not really been selling at all, which is deeply disappointing to me. I really thought that maybe the Gossamer Girl dolls might sell at least. There clearly is a market for those neat Waldorf dolls, and I thought they could be similar to those but different. Their prices are similar, and I thought maybe the style of the Gossamers would appeal to people who wanted some more detail in their dolls than the Waldorfs.
But they have not sold at all. Not a one. People tell me different things about why. Perhaps I just can't get enough exposure. Perhaps I need to make more small, cheap items and clothing for them first. Either way, it got discouraging. I wish I could just hire someone to market for me.
I really do wish I could. I'm not good at it, and being bad at it makes me sad. But I imagine it would be either super expensive, or would be one of my friends. And my friends don't tend to be good at it either.
I know I almost never get comments on here, but if anyone has any ideas I could really use some help.
