There's one thing that's been on my mind and I would love your opinion; it's about on-line textile shops, as in us selling our weaving on a art/craft-oriented site.
A while back I sensed Etsy is the biggest of such platforms so I got an account and have not done anything about it. With the falling (fallen?) Kiwi dollar, however, it seems now is a good time for me to get on board this type of selling/marketing.
Connie Rose reexamined her sales venues in December, however, and revamped her web site, more or less ditched Etsy for her nicer things, and joined another platform. (See a whole series of posts on this subject here.) In particular, this post stopped me from jumping right into it last year. Around the same time, a local person started Jammy, a Kiwi version of Esty as far as I can tell.
I like the idea of taking part in local efforts like these, but it costs to take part, and that being the case, I prefer to be on an US or UK based platform where I can get more hit, particularly if I want to take advantage of the low Kiwi dollar.
Do you have any thoughts on the matter? Etsy in particular, or on-line sales in general. Any thoughts, experiences, and biased opinions appreciated.
