Hello, I just happen to stumble to this forum and found it interesting. I am new so not sure if this is the correct place, but I will try and see. I have been on Etsy for 3 years and sold over 3k items. I started with custom Snapchat geofilters and printable invitation. I have recently switch over to focus on selling Cards. Cards for birthdays, graduations, and greeting cards. I have found much success with this item. I sell 15-20 cards a day. I tried to branch out with my website but had little success. I am wondering how can I scale up my greeting card business. If anyone has tips or suggestions I would greatly appreciate it.

I'm surprise people still buy cards I guess you've stumbled on a unmet niche. Do you print them yourself? Are you in any other platforms but other than etsy?

Yes I was surprise as well when they starting selling. I mainly sell on Etsy and have a website. I use a manufacturer that also ships the cards.

Just curious, how many listings on Etsy do you have?
It seems there's a strong co-relation between the number of sales and the number of listings on Etsy.

I'm using eRank to track over 45 of my competitors:




I've cropped out the shop names, but from the table, it seems generally the more you have, the higher the chances your items gets shown on the first pages.

* The Week column indicates the number of sales they made per week, so the first guy made 9294 sales that week. Damn, if I can make 350 sales per week, I can quit my day job for good.
