Here I am on December 4th at sale number 1901 on my Etsy site! My goal is to reach 2000 before the end of the year. Actually 2010 would be fantastic!!!!
How did I get here? A lot of marketing!!!!! I found out the hard way that "I" as in me and just me have to do all the marketing myself!!!! I paid for advertising on quite a few sites and I did giveaways on blogs. There is only one blog that has been a steady source of clicks to my site. I of course will keep up with that blog and continue to do giveaways etc. as long as she will have me! All of my paid advertisements were flops, including the $250 Design Sponge ad. Facebook does not work for me either.
What does work for me?
Twitter and Etsy forums. and they are both FREE!!!!!! However, you have to invest time and effort. Once the people come to your site you need to have atleast good pictures, decent descriptions, great prices and excellent customer service. I want people to be happy. I make my products because they are fun.
Come see what I am talking about: www.flirtbuttons.etsy.com
and if you make a purchase, write blog20 in the message to seller and get a 20% refund after purchase. and don't forget I also have buy one get one free pocket mirrors on sale thru December. Check out my announcement at the top of my shop for details.
Thank You for all your support, love my peeps!!! -Sharon
