I'm doing a survey, would you...
« on: September 14, 2010, 09:46:11 PM »
I'm doing a survey. Would you like to participate?

I am trying to determine what buyers look for when they go to etsy. Since we're all artists here, it maybe too much of an obvious answer.

But since Paul asked for a journal from me and a friend of me asked her to make a bag. Sometimes people want practical things as well as art.

Here are my questions:

What do you look for when you shop at etsy?

What keywords do you use?

When you see the front page, do any of the items featured interest you?

What time of day do you go on etsy?

If you look through treasuries, do any of the items from there interest you?

These questions are designed to get the truth of what buyer's want from etsy. I'm hoping it will be the solution to etsy's current divide between sellers.

If you could help me out with this it would be much appreciated.

If you participate in this I can make you something small. I'm making these pendants. Some will be on sale at etsy and some will be used for this experiment.

I will give you a hint as to what I can give you.

I found this digital sheet of poison labelse. And I thought they were charming and hillarious at the same time. I will make some and show you. I'm still waiting for the supplies.

Once I get answers from you, I will share what you have said with the people at etsy. However I will not share your name. I want to keep this annonymous.

If you could help, it would be a huge favor and may even help the sellers on here out in the long run.

Thank you for your time to read this.

Jess

What do you look for when you shop at etsy?
Hand made stuff.  Art.  Lately a coffee table

What keywords do you use?
Something related to what I'm searching for.  Like recently I wanted a figure study for the bathroom, so I searched for Nude Tile

When you see the front page, do any of the items featured interest you?
It depends on the day, but I think they pick some pretty amazing fashion items.

What time of day do you go on etsy?
There's no real specific time, mainly when the desire hits to find something.  Many of us are so uber electronically connected now that we have cellphones with web browsers.  What's time when you don't have to be lassoed to a computer.

If you look through treasuries, do any of the items from there interest you?
I haven't looked

Thank you Jesse for your honest imput. I will copy it and put it in the buyer's report thread. : ). When I get my supplies I will make you a pendant. It comes with a leather cord. I think you'll like it. It's unisex I think.

You're welcome.  I can't see what you come up with.
