Actually in a few books I have read about starting online business, they suggest that you keep your prices the same across all venues. Don't you think someone would get mad if they saw you selling something they purchased from you cheaper on another venue? Keep them the same and just keep marketing, marketing, marketing.
Another thing, which I am so guilty of myself is inconsistency in marketing. I work a full time job so sometimes it hard for me to do but post every day to all of your accounts even if it's just a little inspirational saying or a share of some relevant diy video. The rule of mass marketing is that for every 1000 people you "talk" too, you will get 1% of them to buy. __________________ https://www.artyah.com/seller/jadedmage

A year at least is a good length of time to evaluate. How to get some sales: pound the keyboard to invite people to your shop. Offer incentives. Do these things consistently. Never give up. Make adjustments until something works. Good luck to you! __________________ Sandi ♥ ♥ Artsy Craftery Studio ♥ The Creative Seller Website ♥ Pinterest ♥ Instagram ♥ Facebook Twitter

Send out an announcement email to some of your contacts, friends, family, people in your groups online, etc. Make it tasteful, don't spam. Find people to tell about what you do and where your shop is. __________________ Sandi ♥ ♥ Artsy Craftery Studio ♥ The Creative Seller Website ♥ Pinterest ♥ Instagram ♥ Facebook Twitter

I agree. keep pricing the same if you can. this confuses the buyer.

To the OP - I'd keep your prices the same in both places, otherwise if you get a client that bought from one and then found out you sold it for less at the other, you could lose a repeat customer.
To the discussion on whether or not Artyah site makes it: the-site-which-shall-not-be-named is making big changes to the way their site looks, and also is not monitoring mass produced and allowing a ton of low-quality, cheap items. Combine the mass produced low quality with the way the listings have been changed to look like a frenzied bargain bin at Walmart and their buyer base is going to change. People who prefer LL Bean to Walmart will stop shopping at the other site, and people who prefer Walmart will start going there. The only problem for the other site is Ebay is already Walmart, so with the changes being made by the-site-which-shall-not-be-named, they are (intentionally or otherwise) changing their buying customer base and heading into direct competition with Ebay price-wise. That will change what sellers sell as they will have to drop their quality in order to price competitively. Some site will pick up the quality-minded buyers because they still exist, and ArtYah has come at the right moment to pick them up. I don't think most of the customers from the other site have realized yet, but they are starting to. I've already seen it in convos from my own clients. Yes, it may take those people a while to fully find ArtYah, but that niche market is out there, and the other site is cutting them free and throwing them to the wind... I'm betting on ArtYah to be the site that picks them up. Why? Because when I look at my ArtYah store I see big detailed photos, relaxed, clear and easy to see listings. It's a clam and relaxing pleasure to shop. When I look at my other site I see a confusing mish-mash of listings truncated with reviews and dotted with sale tags. I see heavy sales pressure, and get a used car lot stress feeling It looks disorganized, frenzied, and stressful. The difference in the two looks alone will attract a customer base to ArtYah that is looking for quality, simply because their site set-up exudes calm, relaxation, and quality. This change will take a while, but those quality customers have to go somewhere - their taste isn't going to change simply because the other site changed - as long as ArtYah keeps quality handmade items and continues to advertise, those buyers will find ArtYah and word will get around. Give it time... they will find us :-)

Make up a flyer about your wonderful new store on Artyah and how you are ready for holiday shoppers. Include it in the package when you sell something on another site. (Another reason to keep prices the same if you sell in more thwn one place.)

I keep my prices the same but Ebay is 10% and that includes shipping which is a hard hit. so usually my ebay is a little higher on my pricey items.
Welcome Farplitzs and Ann. what is your shop addresses? You could put them in your signatures for more exposure. I use twitter and pinterest for my items to get them out there, along with instagram and I have a FB account Julie __________________ Bold Statement Jewelry https://www.artyah.com/seller/123gemstones https://www.facebook.com/123gemstones/?ref=settings https://www.instagram.com/123gemstones/ https://www.pinterest.com/123gemstones/
