We can’t believe how fast this third quarter has arrived! In some ways it feels like years since the start of the year, but in other ways, it feels like we blinked and it was almost July. With the start of the new quarter, we’re excited to share this third quarter’s free desktop calendars with you! We hope you love them as much as we do!
Third quarter reminders
We’re getting into the summer groove here in the U.S. but we know many of our customers are in the middle of winter. With this new quarter, we have a few reminders for you to help you find even more Etsy shop success!
Looking ahead: The first major holiday after the upcoming quarter is Halloween. We always recommend that you start making changes around three months in advance. Don’t wait until the end of the present quarter to start brainstorming and preparing to make changes to your listings and Etsy SEO accordingly.
If you wait until the end of September to make changes, you will be behind the curve and we definitely want you to take advantage of thinking and planning ahead!
The Holidays are coming!
On the heels of Halloween will be the 2020 holiday season! So, have you started thinking about new holiday products to release? Have you got a plan in place to get your shop holiday ready with branding? Do you have props in mind for holiday photos? Do you have your shop policies for the Holidays thought through and ready to go? If not, begin to brainstorm those now! And as always, be sure to let us know in the comments if you have any questions.
What we hope…
With all of that being said, we truly hope this is the BEST summer that you and your shop have had! 2020 has been a strange year so far and we sincerely hope you find more Etsy shop success than ever before as we head into these sunny months! If things are a bit slow, use this time to take a few courses and learn more ways to make your shop even more successful during your busy season! Prepare now for inventory needs and be on top of your game so that when things take off, you’ll be ready!
Enjoy the warm (or cool) days ahead of you and don’t forget that no matter what, life is very short, so love the small things and don’t stress about the things that are out of your control.
Happy third quarter and happy selling, everyone!
