Do Your Etsy Product Photos Look Like They Belong On Facebook Marketplace?

Sometimes when I’m scrolling through Etsy shops, I see product photos and think, “Are they photographing for Etsy customers or Facebook Marketplace buyers?” Or even Craiglist customers.

Your product photos matter to customers when selling handmade products on Etsy. If you’re taking photos that look like they could be for a listing on a website where people are looking for bargains, how do you expect customers to look at your product and think they’re getting a quality, handmade product?

It’s why it’s so important to learn how to take proper product photos for your online handmade business. They communicate the value of your product and even the trustworthiness of you as a business and business owner.
