Etsy (finally) releases new app to all sellers ๐Ÿ“ฒ

It's half way through the week!

We just got back in town from a short trip so it feels like this week is flying by!

Lets get into the good stuff though ๐ŸŽ‰

Etsy (finally) releases new app to all sellers ๐Ÿ“ฒ

Etsy decided to fix ๐Ÿ”ง something that wasn't broken with their new app; Etsy Explore. It looks like this in the app store:


This app was previously only available to a few invite-only beta testers (I was actually one of them ๐Ÿคช) and if the 2.5 star โญ๏ธโญ๏ธ rating on the app store isn't already telling; the app is just meh ๐Ÿคทโ€โ™€๏ธ

โžก๏ธ The biggest thing they are pushing with this new app is the 'Explore' feature.

Which is where you upload videos โฌ†๏ธ that allow users to scroll Etsy ๐Ÿ“ฒ as they would scroll Tiktok -basically them trying to copy TikTok in a way ๐Ÿ‘€

โœ… The nice thing is that you can actually tag ๐Ÿท listings in these videos so people can purchase ๐Ÿ’ฐ๐Ÿ’ฐ right from the video

๐Ÿ‘‰ See my video breakdown here

It is an entire extra step when it comes to listing products on Etsy though ๐Ÿ™ƒ Love that journey for us ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ


New digital product idea that is โœจtrendingโœจ

If you're on TikTok I just know you've seen a million videos about UGC (user generated content)

UGC is basically being an influencer without needing a following or posting on your own account - but still getting paid by brands.

Watch my video about it here

๐Ÿ‘‰ Because of all the buzz on this look at whats starting to pop up on Etsy search...


Soooo yeah this is a product that is building ๐Ÿ”ง in demand ๐Ÿฅณ

Because it's so new (only about 1.5K listings so far) there isn't a ton of data ๐Ÿ”Ž surrounding it but I think jumping in now ๐Ÿ• is a great idea to start ranking for it ๐Ÿ“ˆ - snag those bestseller spots ๐Ÿ† baby!

โžก๏ธ Because of the intricacies of this industry I don't recommend this product for beginners unless you're willing to do the research๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป to fully understand what people are looking for โœ…

Etsy descriptions are about to get even more ignored...

Not to be dramatic, but this update has me feeling like a best friend betrayed me ๐Ÿ’”

Yeahh so Etsy decided to implement the 'BUY NOW' ๐Ÿ‘€ button feature- which means consumers can click the buy now button without ever actually clicking on the listing...๐Ÿ™ƒ

โžก๏ธ Which means that the description won't even show for them ๐Ÿคฆ๐Ÿผโ€โ™€๏ธ

๐Ÿ‘‰ So what do you need to do about this?

Basically add all the important info from your description โœ๐Ÿป into your listing photos ๐Ÿ“ท because most people look at all the photos โœ…

Have you been using Creative Fabrica elements on your Canva Templates? ๐ŸŽจ

โžก๏ธ A lot people (including me!) have used using creative fabrica ๐ŸŽจ elements as a work around to have โœจmore of a varietyโœจ of elements outside of the Canva free elements (you can only use Canva's free elements when selling digital products)

However...

One of my sweet followers emailed โœ‰๏ธ Creative Fabrica for more clarification and this was the response:


According to this email..

โœ… You can sell files with Creative Fabrica elements if the file is a flattened PDF

โŒ You cannot embed their elements on websites

โŒ You cannot use them on Canva templates that you're selling

I feel like they're saying you can upload them to your own Canva account to design the PDF but can only SELL it as a flattened version (???); however Canva is a 3rd party server so I'll have to ask for more clarification ๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป

๐Ÿ‘‰ If you have more questions about this I recommend directing your questions to Creative Fabrica directly.


This TikTok glitch ๐Ÿž is freaking annoying

Where oh where did the website links go ๐Ÿ”Ž๐Ÿ‘€

โžก๏ธ Have you noticed that some of your fav creators links are missing?! Are YOUR links missing?!

One of my accounts has โœจpoofโœจ lost its website link - every time I add it back in it would immediately โœจglitch out of existenceโœจ and then this morning I logged on and now the spot to put websites๐Ÿ‘ฉโ€๐Ÿ’ป is completely gone. Nice ๐Ÿ™ƒ

๐Ÿ‘‰ Its been reported ๐Ÿ“ฐ that this is happening to a group of accounts big and small- hopefully it gets resolved ASAP cuz your girl is annoyed ๐Ÿ™„


...and a TikTok โญ๏ธUPDATEโญ๏ธ too?!

Now when you scroll TikTok ๐Ÿ“ฒ you will only see the 'name' displayed instead of the username..kinda tripped me up ๐Ÿค” when I first saw it but yeah its a whole thing.

โžก๏ธ If you're out there doing your TikTok thang I recommend updating your 'name' field to reflect your username so people recognize your account ๐Ÿค

Maybe even add an emoji for some โœจpizazzโœจ


This review flew into my email this morning โค๏ธ

Hearing such amazing feedback from you guys literally makes my day, thank you thank you thank you!!
