First step: Get yourself acquainted with the place FORUMS PROS per Etsy seller Littleputbooks:“1. Etsy users are genuinely helpful.

Simply asking other sellers to give you their input on your shop (see the critiques section) is a great way to get an idea of what youre doing right and what needs improving on. 4. Etsy Admin is involved in the forums. While I still dont believe Admin tends towards favorites, being visible to the people who write the Etsy articles and choose the featured seller is a good idea. It never hurts if the powers that be know you exist."
