Promoting Recent Etsy Postings on Facebook

DeevineDeesignsSummer13 This is the latest collage of the newest additions to my shop!

I’m finding that it is much easier to post collages than it is to post individual items especially to Facebook.   I get annoyed when my timeline is full of  numerous individual pictures of someone’s jewelry, dog, kids…not to be mean but, if I want to look, I will.  I think it’s best to just post one pic that can link up with the rest of them if people choose to look.   What I’m thinking is that I will post new items twice a week in the future and post collages instead of each item.  At the end of the week, I’ll update my cover photo with my newest items.  So much easier for everyone!

Listening to Your Etsy Stats

I think that I am finally getting this whole online promotion thing down!

I watch the results of everything I do and have found that posting to certain sites seems to bring in more traffic than others.

Who would have thought that Twitter would bring more views than Facebook?  I’m just learning Twitter and didn’t realize how popular it was!  What a find for me!  Everytime I post to Twitter, I get bunches of views!  Don’t get me wrong…I still utilize Facebook and others on a rotating basis.  Everything helps!

One thing that I have noticed in the last few weeks is that I have had 6 hits on an item that I listed and sold last year.  I suppose that I wasn’t aware that it would be so popular this year!  I’m thinking that 6 searchs for a particular item is enough to produce more so, tomorrow, I will get started!

In addition, what a great way to see what people are interested in so I can produce more of what’s in demand!

Thankfully, I am fascinated with the internet and ecommerce so I hope to use it to continue to share my creations with the world!

See you at my Etsy shop!

Trying New Things

Okay…I talked about trying new things a couple of posts ago and I have just listed my first attempts at Chainmaille in my Etsy shop!  It really is a simple attempt but I love the outcome and hope to continue on with some more complicated patterns.  I choose to start slow because I don’t want to jump in and just get frustrated…I’ve learned that the hard way!

I hope everyone likes what I have done so far…

Trying New Techniques

I have spent a lot of time admiring techniques that I’ve never used before.  I love wirework and chainmaille both of which I have never really tried.  I have a wigjig and plenty of jumprings that I can play with…one is finally conquered!

Yesterday I decided to try a basic Chainmaille pattern and am very happy with the results!  I made two simple bracelets and added some bling to them.  I will be making a few more creations, including some earrings which I need desperately in my shop!  I’m very excited about how they’ve turned out and hope to post them in my shop next week.  I’m looking forward to sharing my first attempts with everyone!
