I remember how as a newbe on etsy I was walking in the dark trying to understand what are the good days in a week, what were the good days in a month....and so on.
I tried finding info in the forums and the blogosphere but came up with not much.... This made me start accumulating my own figures, I built some excell files in which I put my sales figures, with the details that interest me to follow.
So - now that I feel my shop is running long enough , and doing pretty well (knock on wood), I want to put mu penny for all the great info I did find on the forums and on etsyiens blogs and share my personal statistics. it may help some of you to decide what times are best to renew , good days for show cases etc...
SO- week days statistic show all days are approx the same.... , the exceptions are Thursday and Friday that are 3 % higher and Saturday that is 2-3% lower
days in a month : pick days are around the 3-5th, 14-17, and 26th.
My clients origin pie looks like this : 66% USA, 21% Europe, 8% Canada and 5% far east and Australia.
My hours stats looks like this just don't forget I'm in GMT +2 time zone so you need to convert the hors to match yours. :
I hope this helps someone to better plan their renewing, listing of new items and just hanging around in the right hours...... :)
