A little here, a little there, but none over there

I am still trying to figure this one out. I'm guessing its where the shoppers are for kiddo things. But this is whats happening. I am selling on ebay, on craigslist, by word of mouth in person but NOT ON ETSY where I have my website and where I do the most in promoting. I just don't get it. I also have a free shipping sale right now on etsy and not any of the other places, hmmmmm?????
So I just need to figure out why. The pictures are the same ones, the descriptions are the same and the things that are selling are the same. I'm not complaining if thats what it sounds like, because sales are coming in, but why not from etsy? Thats what I'm wondering. So I think I will try to find another place to sell on and see if that one works too. :D But I am getting a few more views on etsy so there are people looking. Any ideas anyone?

How long have you been on etsy? It takes a little time and perhaps the audience is different. I also know that ebay and craigslist are a little more known to the population than etsy.

I honestly do not like ebay because of costs and the point of getting buried. Have not tried craigslist yet though.

Thanks nicki, been on etsy for over a year, I'll see what happens, its still going to be my website, just not sure why the sales are coming from elsewhere and yes ebay sales are high, but at least I'm selling there :D
