Tuesday's Tools Get YOur Shop Noticed

First I must say that I am certainly not a Pro, I just read and then read some more. It seems that the formula for success on Etsy is different for each Estian; however there are a few tips that seem to be on all of the power sellers lists.

1. Twitter it is the new way of spreading news and networking. Please see the article on our Blog that discusses Twitter.

2. Facebook almost everybody has Facebook. Let’s say you have 500 friends on Facebook, you post your new item, 500 more potential buying customers have the opportunity to see your product. Does it drive your sales? Not really sure but it does get you exposed and out there for all to see.

3. Blogging is another way to share your product with others. Hundreds of potential buyers have the opportunity to see your shop.
4. Get to the Etsy Forums at least 4-5 times a day. Yet another way to be discovered.
5. Esty Storque is a place with so much to offer, it is a learning tool. This will keep you up with what is going on in the world of Etsy. Post comments, get your name out there.

Now this list could go on and on but from my reading these five things are repeated in many articles about getting Etsy sales. Not to mention list new items daily, several times a day.
Etsy is so competitive as an Estian we cannot merely set up shop and hope someone happens by to see our products. Some of you just have that “item” that all the buyers are buying and then there are others of us that are struggling for a sale. Find a venue from the list above a try it for a month see what happens. What works for one may not work for the other BUT do something to network your shop. What ever you choose to do try it for at least a month or two before you say this doesn’t work.

Happy selling! Expect big things to happen in your store today!
