As many of you may know, I recently started an Etsy shop, Haus of Ariella, and I’d like some feedback on it. First of all, I started it with my Etsy username at the time, Ariella42, so it comes up under ariella42.etsy.com instead of hausofariella.etsy.com. I can change the name once, but I’m not sure if I should. Any ideas?
My second issue is the look and feel of the site. I’d love to have better photographs on the site, but I don’t have much to work with in that area. Any advice on taking better photos would be much appreciated though. I also want to have a banner on the top of my site, but I’m at a loss for design. I considered having a contest to design a banner for me with a prize of earrings, cuff links, or a candle, but I’m not sure how much interest that would garner since my blog is just starting. I’m hoping to focus the shop mostly on geeky or music-related items. There’s a vintage ring on there, but that’s the only vintage item I’ll likely put on there. I’d really appreciate any advice or feedback anyone can give me.
