Okay, well I really want to make my Etsy shop successful and to do that, I need traffic and marketing. I got some amazing tips and ideas from Ultimate Guide: 7 Ways to Increase Traffic to your Etsy Shop | Handmadeology. Their is so much information and great ways to get started.
I have been posting pictures of my creations as I finish them on FB for a couple of months now, but that is mostly sharing with friends. Of course they are going to “like” them. The first thing I am going to try is Twitter. I got an account last night and put the link on my toolbar so I will remember to go their. I also set up an account on Scoop. it and Linked. There are so many more sites out there, but it is overwhelming. So, for the next few days I am going to work just on those three sites until I get to know them and get used to them.
I highly recommend this article I placed the link for because she explains how they work and why you should do it. She gives a 5-10-5 rule that I want to learn to live by. Though I do not totally get it yet, I know that I will figure it out and I will be successful! Good luck!
