I’ve slowly started taking new photos for old listings that need an update. This Sodalite bracelet is one of the first items I listed in my Etsy store. The listing only had two product photos and I wasn’t 100% happy with how the photos looked. I think the pink just didn’t reflect my own taste, to be honest.
I’ve kept the pink photo in the line-up, but my new main photograph is clear and simple. The background does not distract from the colors of the stones or try to convey a specific mood. The bracelet gets to be the star. In addition, it’s more in line with the other photos in my store. I will admit, my store doesn’t have a fully consistent look, but I’m trying to steer toward that goal. I have two more of these Sodalite pieces to update, and then the pink will be gone!
Another key to updating a listing is to tweak the Title, body text and tags. I actually found an error in the body of this listing that had been there for a year! And then I saw that I was only using eight tags! It’s so important to use all 14 tags if possible so that you show up in Searches.
Now I feel like this is a new listing instead of an old one. It’s modern and updated and I feel proud to call it my own. How’s your store looking? Is it time to do some Spring cleaning?
