So, like everyone else here, I am trying to be optimistic about Artyah and waiting for sales that are not from friends and family. I don't look at the number of views any more because it is discouraging to think that there are so many views and no sales. It feels like rejection. In addition, since only 3 people have signed up for my Giveaway, I am beginning to wonder about my products. Needing a little encouragement today.

Oh, PlainandPurl I know how you feel girl. Please know that you are not in that boat alone!

I don't think it has anything at all to do with what we create and try to sell. I really don't! For the most part, we all seem to be seeing an increase in views. That tells me that Artyah is starting to spark some interest we so desperately need for a fairly new site. So word IS getting out that we're here. We just have to wait for more confidence from the 'curious' potential buyer to get those sales! 

I think once some of the coming improvements/upgrades are implemented that it will give more credibility and confidence to the site (i.e., shopping cart, sections, etc.). 

Hope you have another venue that is helping during this time of 'wait and see'. I still have 1 etsy shop left, even though that place is on its' last legs with me. It's just gotten too frustrating trying to keep up with all the changes and total disregard for the Sellers. But sales have picked up dramatically for me there (and I still don't understand it!). 

Hang in there girl!

Hi Purl....I count 4 signups so far...anyway, I think your items are wonderful.  But a lot of folks aren't thinking of colder weather quite yet.  I have a lot of views also, but most of my listings are for fall/winter holidays, so people are just beginning to get in that mode.  It will happen!  Be patient, smile, think positive!

I agree completely.
You did not get any sales on Etsy in their early days either. I go about 9 sales in the 2nd year they were in open

Thanks for all the love everyone! I always think that it is cold somewhere in the world but of course Artyah may not be that widespread, although I did notice one Australian seller. Despite lack of sales for winter items, I thought that baby items were always in demand, that seems to be the case on Etsy. I am letting my E shop listings expire and will be finished there in October. Too much money to promote items, and no sales without promotion, so net loss for me.

Back to the Giveaway, I only have 3 names because Barb withdrew. Timelapse, did I miss someone?

Thanks again everyone.

PlanandPurl, I love your creations!  It's hard, but give it time.  I opened on E in 2007 and it took a while for it to get going.  Artyah reminds me of what E was back then...before it got so "corporate".  I left over the whole forced EP and some other things that just crossed the line for me. I'm hopeful that Artyah will always keep what's best for the seller in mind.  I'd love to be included in this giveaway.  I hope you all are having a lovely day!

Thank-you vintagerepeats! Meanwhile, if things don't sell, I have the cutest granddaughter to knit for.

I will add your name to the Giveaway.
