Any tips for selling online?

My husband and I are working on setting up a shop on etsy, hopefully sometime near the end of the year.
Currently we're just getting ready and selling locally in person where ever we find we can set up.

I'd love to hear any tips for once we get going selling online.
We both have been reading and doing research, but nothing helps more than hearing experiences from people that are already set up. Once we are ready we thought of starting a giveaway to draw some attention. It won't be easy but we want all the products we sell to be customized so that everyone can have what they would like.
Right now we only have jewelry, earrings and necklaces, but we're adding in some decorated bobby pins soon and have lots of ideas of different things we'd like to add over time.

One important tip that I can offer is that good qualitye photos are a must and so is a watermark on every photo you post online. Sadly, there are a lot of people who steal others work and use it for their own so it's important to be able to prove it's yours. The watermark should be very noticeable and should be placed on the item to make it hard to remove without destroying that part of the item in the photo.
