Authoring & Writing Content

I am wondering something, does anyone know is it possible to export your website content without loosing all your work and pages, posts, images, etc?

Hi Steph:). I may not be adding anything to the discussion, but it's good to see you around! I thought about you recently, and wondered how you were doing:)
Blessings:)

You can make a full backup of your website and upload it to a test site to make sure that everything has been included, before you actually export the site. ~Jude

Let us know if the advice given by Triblu was successful
seems to be sound advice .It is great learning from other member's questions

Hi Stephanie, I've never given it a thought, sorry.

I am sure it is possible, and I see that Triblu has also given you some good guidance on this.
Good luck.
Remember - site support is a great help with these kinds of things ;)
cheers - Orion

Don't it depends on where you export it to?

The only this that is applicable is if the target destination has enough space to hold the files.

Hey Stephanie,

It SURE is possible. I've done it several times... and if your website is small enough to use the WP Clone plugin, it will even change up the URL within EVERY internal link if you use the zip file to "restore" your website to a totally NEW domain name. I've done THAT several times. However, if your website is tad too big, you can use the All-in-One WP Migration: Hope this helps you.

I imported my site from another hosting company to WA. WA gave me the information on what to do and then completed it for me. I did not lose any content at all. It came over perfectly. So I'm thinking if you can import a site, you should be able to export it.

This may have to be preemptive Steph with a cloned site I would be most interested in a definitive answer!

Yep. I was thinking of that too - a "clone site" --- Thank you Mike.

One of my websites is for selling handmade Southwestern jewelry. Should do I an Etsy site to handle the ecommerce or should I go with a regular website and a WooCommerce plugi

My sister makes jewelry and sells on Etsy. She doesn't do much promotion, so her sales suffer, but Etsy is an excellent platform for handmade crafts. Also, lots of shop owners on Etsy make use of Pinterest to lure people to their Etsy stores with traffic grabbing pins.

I've added a lot of pins to my sea glass jewelry boards that are linked to Etsy shops.

I was thinking of doing that. I have a PInterest account and I was thinking of creating a new board with the turquoise jewelry that is currently on my new Etsy Shop that I just opened. I was thinking that would be a great way to get sales. Thank you so much Wendy for chiming in.

You're welcome, and turquoise jewelry with the right Pinterest pins created on Canva should get you lots of sales. Please pm me your Etsy link so I can follow your store.

I'm on the hunt for a particularly well crafted sterling silver ring with a large opal - so if you ever make anything like that, let me know. :-)

I will strongly recommend Shopify not because of its name or brand or etc but for simplicity and peace of mind which allows you to focus on selling your items. Instead of spending hours and days tweaking and testing. All your work will be automated once set up.

You can research them for more proofs and tips.

Hope this helps.

I will look into Shopify. I have heard of them and took a brief look at them a while back. But I will take another look because of your suggestion. Thank you Richard. Your recommendation is very much appreciated.

Very well then. I am glad to be of help today. I have helped a couple of store owners get on to Shopify as I am a partner their as well. Its all about understanding your specific store need so you don't waste time and money on thing you don't need.

Anyways all the best going forward and feel free to ask for help anytime.

Good question I had an Etsy account for a few years but I was more successful with my own woocommerce site.I was debating reopening my Etsy account for one product only which has been a best seller for over 20 years.

Okay. And it could be a timing thing too. Perhaps when you had your Etsy store, Etsy was too new and not enough people knew about it yet and now that they do know, you might have more success. I don't know....just thinking. Thank you for sharing your story and experience. Much appreciative.

Thanks for asking this question - I learned yet another aspect of affiliate marketing.
Good luck with your Etsy store.

Thank you Orion! I am curious about your username "SantaFez"...do you live in Santa Fe?

With a WooCommerce plugin, you'll mostly be responsible for generating the traffic to your products. With an Etsy store, you've got the advantage of being available to the millions of people who visit Etsy every month. It's worth the cut you must pay them to be on there.

FYI, Etsy has an affiliate program through Awin.com. You are still allowed to join as a store owner. If someone buys something from your store, you don't get commission, but if they click through to your store then buy something from another store, you get a commission. Worth doing for sure!

Hi Jeanine:

Oh, I like that idea of not only if I am a store owner, but I could promote Etsy in general on my website and get commissions if I join the affiliate program. Thank you for the suggestion. I think might do that. I followed everyone's advice and started an Etsy store. But I had not thought about also doing the affiliate program, but I love that idea. :)

Thank you a million Jeanine!

Hi Stephanie,

My 'lil' sister does jewelry and quite often talks about Etsy and they have been around for many years.

Monica

Thanks Monica. I appreciate the quick response. That is cool to know. I did not know they have been around for so long.

Hi Steph,

I would do it with Etsy as it is marketplace that buyers frequently visit and inherently trust.

Thank you Jay. I appreciate the quick response. I was thinking of doing a website and then have a page called "Etsy Shop" that links to my Etsy store...that way I can still write posts, etc. to develop content and link to the Etsy store. Thank you!
