Etsy Tip of the day (Building your Social Network)



Developing collaborative communities with Etsy Sellers inside and outside of Etsy has really taken my business to a higher level. So I really feel it's necessary to create a multi-prong strategy:

*Establishing a solid base of followers on Twitter--we tweet our items and RT our fellow artisan's items and I got my first #Follow Friday!

*Establishing a solid profile on Facebook--I am beginning to offer added value to fans by promoting their posts, adding Discussion Topics so that they can share their Twitter Channels, Blogs, etc. and gaining a larger friend and fan base.

*Providing rich content on my blog--featured artists, giveaways, articles about marketing and promotion

*Establishing a presence in the Etsy forums, chats, labs--I am currently working on developing a stronger Etsy presence and broadening my participation.

And I also am getting back to basics: redoing some of my not so successful shop photos, redesigning the banner, and making sure my items are fresh and appealing to buyers!
