Hi everyone, I thought I would post here to see if I can get some advice and other perspectives on my idea. I want to sell sewing patterns ( designed by myself) as digital downloads / pdf format. I have already sold a few on Etsy and Ebay. Ebay has been very slow indeed! but I want to get more sales and grow it into a business. At the moment I only have 4 patterns done and I'm aware I need more products before I can create a credible looking online shop and presence. So in the next couple of months I am going to work on getting more patterns finished. What I would like advice on is 1) eCommerce platforms. I did some research and the platforms I looked at only allowed sales of digital products on their higher priced monthly shop packages, the ones that allow you to sell 100s of products and have capabilities I don't really need as I will not have 100s of products. As far as I can see on Shopify, I would still need to sign up for additional services to automate digital downloads. I would be selling more like 20 different patterns in the first year. So should I just stick to ebay and Etsy for the first year? 2) Marketing. Of course, I need eyes on my products to get more sales. Some ideas I've had are ads/ photoshoots in vintage interest magazines / websites. ( My niche is vintage/retro fashion). Maybe tutorials on Youtube. Obviously, I will try and use social media but may get someone else to manage this as it's not my strong point. Potentially I can sell worldwide as there is no postage to deal with, I just need to reach my customers. Does anyone have any advice?
