I'm a veteran eCommerce seller who's sold on eBay, Amazon, Amazon FBA, Etsy, as well as Woo Commerce and Shopify stores.

Launching a new store or new business is always a challenge. Not only do you have to rise in Etsy's search algorithm, you also need to start getting some reviews for some social proof and trust from buyers.

I think the absolute best way to get your first few intiial sales is to use Ety's PPC advertising which can be found in the marketing section of your Etsy backend. It's incredibly helpful at getting a few sales. As you get sales your listings and items will naturally begin to rise in Etsy's search ranking and if people are happy with what your selling they'll leave reviews which will further raise your Etsy SEO and also offer some social proof making other buyers more comfortable to buy from you.

Outside of that in terms of getting your Etsy listings seen write detailed descriptions. Write headers or titles which catch attention and use keywords potential buyers may be searching for. Provide as many pictures as possible.

You can also start sharing or promoting your items on social media platforms like Pinterst, Instagram, Facebook, Twitter, etc.
