"A day in the life" series post 2. Craftopolis edit express.

"A day in the life" series post 2
Not everyone knows all that goes in to a small handcrafted business such as mine so I started this series of Blog and FB posts to give people an idea of my day to day life and all that it takes to run a business like mine. I'll have tips for online businesses in these posts as well.

Today in preparation for the busy fall and holiday
season I am starting to go thr
ough all of my listings and double check them for accuracy. Something that most people don't think about when starting an online business is how much work goes in to keeping your shops, websites, listings, etc. up to date. You have to be detail oriented for this job. Postal prices are constantly changing and every time those rates change you have to change your pricing. It's a lot of work when you have many online shops and 100's of listings in each shop.

For all of you Etsy shop owners if you don't use the Craftopolis Edit Express you should check it out. It is a great way to edit all of your Etsy listings quickly (well as quickly as you can LOL) Just enter your shop name and all of your listings will show up on the page. Then you can edit all of your prices, descriptions, titles and quantity in one location. To me it is a must have tool and is what I am using to update all of my listings today. It's going to be a long day.
