One of the most useful places to sell your Tarot readings online is on Etsy. Etsy is a website that allows you to sell handmade, vintage, custom, and unique things to potential customers all in one place.
To sell Tarot readings on Etsy, you must begin with making an account and choosing a shop name. Once you have done this, you should determine what services you want to sell, give your shop a clean and professional look, and then spend time promoting yourself as often as you can.
If you are looking to expand your client base as a Tarot reader or are brand new to being a Tarot reader and are looking for a place to sell them, Etsy is the website to be on. Below we have provided you with a complete guide on how you can easily and successfully sell Tarot readings on Etsy.
The first and most obvious thing you need to do is create an Etsy account. When you do this, you will be providing some personal information and become a seller.
When you become a seller, you will first have to choose a shop name. If you are stuck on what to name your shop, you should choose something that portrays who you are and what you do. In this case, it’s Tarot readings, so it is best to use the word Tarot, readings, or other related words somewhere in the name.
Be creative, unique, and take a look at other Tarot readers on Etsy to get a good idea of what to do, but remember, don’t use someone else’s name as that is bad for both your business and their’s.
Once you have a shop, you will then choose what readings to sell. You can do this by creating multiple services within your shop that all offer different types of readings for different prices.
When you are choosing which ones to pick, here are some different Tarot reading package ideas:
- One-Card Tarot Reading
- Themed Tarot Reading (for example, love/career/friendships)
- Past, Present, Future Three-Card Spread
- Celtic Cross Reading
- Yes or No Question & Answer
- Relationship Prediction Reading
- The Year Ahead Predictions
- Monthly Predictions
- Same Day/Emergency Three-Card Spread
You are welcome to pick and offer as many as you would like, and it is beneficial to have some variety in the style of Tarot reading, the topic of the reading, and the prices of the readings.
While you can set the price to be different for each reading, you will have to keep it lower than some other more established Tarot readers as you start out.
But, a great way to bring in some extra cash is by offering same day or emergency Tarot readings and charging a higher price for those.
Another trick to boost up the amount someone is spending is to offer the readings that do not specify the number of cards (such as the themed Tarot readings or year ahead predictions) on a per-card basis. This will allow you to set the prices based on how many cards the customer wants you to draw, and you can even offer discounts the more cards that they choose.
One of the most important aspects of your Etsy Tarot reading shop is how professional the site looks. This will come down to three main things that you should make sure you spend time on, so your site looks professional, trustworthy, and appealing.
One of the first things a customer will see is the title. Make sure the title accurately describes what the service is; in this case, it should just be the name of the Tarot reading. Further details can go in the description. You also want to ensure simplicity and proper spelling.
If you really want to get people’s attention to your Tarot readings on Etsy and away from other people, you should invest some time into taking great-looking photos for each service you offer. If you have an iPhone, you already have a great camera to use. Use it to take photos of sample Tarot spreads on top of a simple background with bright lighting to make your service look as appealing as possible.
The Tarot Reading Descriptions
After a customer clicks on your Tarot reading service because they loved the title and saw your amazing photos, they will then read the description to learn about what you are offering. It is essential here that you spend time writing in detail exactly what the customer is getting in their reading. As well as any information you need them to provide, you can do the reading easily after making a purchase.
If you can master these three things, your business is set up to succeed, and now you need to focus on getting people to your Etsy shop and making sure once people get there and like what they see, they actually make a purchase. This will be covered in the next few steps.
One of the best free and easy ways to promote yourself is through social media. Create an Instagram or a Facebook account, and if you are feeling like really spreading your reach, you can even try out YouTube, Twitter, and Tik Tok. Do not stress, though; even if you only have Instagram or Facebook, you can get a lot of attention on those alone.
When you make the account, it is best to give it the same name as your shop or use your own name. Add the link of your Etsy shop in your biography or somewhere it is easy to find and use the accounts to promote yourself and your business by providing Tarot related content and possibly even free one-card readings.
Once you have launched your shop, it is time to get networking. Reach out to other people through social media that are also selling Tarot readings.
Connecting with like-minded people is a great way to gain inspiration for what you should be doing, a way to find support from others, and, best of all, a way to get your name out there in the Tarot reading community.
Ask for Reviews
After you have done some readings, ask people for reviews of what they thought. If you are providing the reading through an email, add on to the end of every email that you would really appreciate some feedback.
When people provide reviews, potential customers will be able to see how many stars you have right on your profile as well as see what other people are saying. If someone complimented your work, ask for them to post a review directly on your shop page.
If you do not have reviews, people will not know whether or not to trust what you are doing. So, by having other people rave about your readings, other people are more likely to purchase a reading as well.
If you follow this guide on how you can start selling Tarot readings on Etsy, you are sure to create a successful and professional looking shop.
By giving it a creative name, having a variety of services and prices, making the title, photos, and descriptions as professional-looking as possible as well as promoting yourself wherever and whenever you can, you will be making money on Etsy in no time.
