June 2018 Free Desktop Calendar from Marmalead

June’s free Desktop Calendar

Our June 2018 free desktop calendar for Etsy sellers is available for download! This month we’d like to remind you, our amazing small business creatives, crafters, and makers, that Father’s Day is coming up on June 17th. This is a huge time of year for selling on Etsy when shoppers are looking for Father’s Day gifts and items to show their dad how much they love them.

Do you sell Father’s Day gift ideas? If you haven’t already, be sure you make the changes needed to your Etsy shop listings to take advantage of the upcoming Father’s Day holiday! June 6th is also highlighted on your calendar because you will have one month until July 4th from this date. Get a jump start on planning for Independence Day if your shop sells items for this holiday!

Father’s Day Shop Updates

What do we mean by changes to your Etsy shop to prep for Father’s Day sales and orders? Well, let’s talk about some things you can do to ensure that Etsy’s algorithm picks up your items and shows them to shoppers looking for Father’s Day gifts. Remember, it can take up to a month for any changes in your shop to be fully implemented which is why we always suggest starting at least a month in advance when making changes to your shop for upcoming holidays. But if you haven’t begun to plan for Father’s Day, don’t be discouraged! Getting a little piece of the action is better than getting none at all. Jump on updating your listings that would make great Father’s Day gifts…and be sure to update a little earlier next year!
For example, if you sell leather wallets on Etsy that would be perfect for a dad, you could update a product listing title with phrases like “Father’s Day Gift,” “Wallet for Dad.” When you update your title listings in Etsy, make sure that you are also updating your tags.
For help on how to update your titles on Etsy and make sure that you are using the exact phrases that shoppers use on Etsy, be sure to check out the keyword brainstorming tools inside of Marmalead.

A few tips for selling and buying

We found this post on Etsy if you’re the one looking for a gift for dad! Supporting other Etsy sellers is always an awesome thing to do. Plus, browsing other shops may give you some great ideas for your own shop. Also, remember that Marmalead has the Popular Shopper Searches on Etsy lists that are perfect for helping you prepare your shop for the upcoming holiday. If you’re feeling stumped on keywords and don’t know where to start, as always, our Etsy keyword generator (aka Marmalead’s Storm Tool) is here for ya!!

Keepin’ it personal

One of the reasons buyers come to Etsy is because it’s a unique and personal buying experience. They’re not looking for the large cooperate feeling you find in many large stores. They are shopping for one of the most important men in their life and you have the opportunity to help make their gift the best gift yet!

Now is the time to amp up your packaging! Been considering making it more personal and unique? Do it! Adding a personal note if you have the time is a great idea. Also, doing something as small as tying a package with a beautiful ribbon can really communicate just how much you value the experience your customers are searching for.
