Just a reminder to freshen up your Etsy shop post-Halloween! Re-title and re-tag your Halloween listings to make them more evergreen... (or ever-orange?) For example the above image used to be a Halloween journal and is now an "Thanksgiving planner. Autumn pumpkin notebook. Grey Moleskine journal for Fall, with orange pumpkins illustration. Notebook, journal or gift."

You could market some items for Thanksgiving Day in the USA (November 24th 2016). More info on Thanksgiving here.

If your products and listings are overwhelmingly screaming Halloween and cannot be convincingly marketed as autumnal, it might be a good idea to either offer them at a discount or deactivate those listings until next year, because everybody - IT'S CHRISTMAS. 

Don't forget to weed out Halloween references in your descriptions and look out for any listings where you selected the occasion as Halloween in the drop down lists when creating the listing!

Hope you had a:
