I'm always looking for ways to improve my Etsy Store.
Lately I've been focusing on the way I stage my photos. I've changed backdrops and lighting in the past several times, but recently I've been adding props.
Not only is this making my photos better but I'm having fun too.
Which one would you be more likely to purchase??? it's a no brainer
A simple pair of American flags give this old sign some kick. But remember your proper flag etiquette when using these for photos.
I also like showing how an item can be used. It's not enough that it's cool and unusual, it needs to function as well. I love this very unusual lap desk easel, but I can see how someone might need some help to figure out how to make it useful.
Again, Which one tool carrier would you be more like to purchase???
I think I'm getting better at this
Below is one of my favorites. I'm sure this lovely chopper will sell now, and look how the tray behind just makes it pop!!
If you do this in your store remember to make it clear that only the item in the title is part of the listing, and don't over do it with too many extra props, That take the focus away from the item you are wanting to sell.
Also use items that are available in your shop. You never know someone might just start poking around looking for the other item too. I had someone buy everything I had in a picnic photo one time. She wanted the whole thing for a party.
