Tag Workshop: Pearl Hanging Art

Once we have created, photographed, and described our latest creation, we come to the toughest part of listing an item on Etsy. Choosing tags that will accurately describe a design, and help it turn up in searches can be a difficult task. Every week, the Oh Canada Team shares some examples of which search terms shoppers and sellers use to locate different types of products.

This week, our Tag Workshop will focus on a charming hanging art creation by UxCritter. The description reads:

Soft pastel glass pearls are gorgeous focals in the graduated lengths of clear crystals and silver hoops in this pretty hanging art.

It can be used indoors or outdoors. Each strand has been strung with heavy floss for the pure white color and sheer strength.

Dark Ride suggests these tags:

housewares, home decor, hanging art, jewellery mobile,
sun catcher, white pearls, clear crystals, outdoors,
glass hearts, circles, pale pastels,
garden art, UxCritter, ohcanadateam

Stuff by Steph recommends:

housewares, home décor, wind chimes, garden décor,
ready to hang, soft pastel, crystal clear, pearly white,
mobile, outdoor, housewarming,
wedding, uxcritter, ohcanadateam

The Sage’s Cupboard suggests:

housewares, home décor, outdoor, hanging art,
chimes, pearl beads, crystal hearts, pastel colors,
white, silver, delicate, whimsical, pretty, hoops

The Merriweather Council recommends:

housewares, outdoor, windchime, beaded,
crystals, hearts, pearl, silver, decoration,
yard, window, white, beach house, hanging

And the actual tags are:

housewares, outdoor, windchime, hanging art,
pearl, silver hoops, hearts, crystal, silver, white,
uxcritter, hoops, ohcanadateam, pastels

Each list features great examples of descriptive words that shoppers might use to find this product. The toughest thing about choosing tags for our own items, is trying to imagine what types of searches could lead to our designs.

One easy exercise is to show a new creation to friends and family and ask “What would you call this?”. You might discover some new terms for your product that potential customers will think of when searching.
