Marketing and Promoting Sorta

I have finally joined Twitter after hearing other Etsyians rave about it. Supposedly, it is a great promotional tool. I still have no clue on how to use it but I am currently trying to figure it out. If you would like to follow me, here's my link: https://twitter.com/Jewelicide


Update: I think that I have received a few sales after joining Twitter. It has brought traffic to my Etsy sites and I have also discovered some some great artists and Etsians. Plus, its somewhat addicting.


I am also experimenting with 1000 Markets and Art Fire.

Hey there!

I'm kinda dropping by randomly because your link is on my blog & I'm reading through them in the middle of the night.

& I thought I'd stop for a second to tell you about this new selling site I found. It's called ArtFire.com & you should check it out.

It's still really, really new (still in beta) but it's heading in a really good direction! They are already buying advertising online & in print magazines to bring in traffic to the site. (It's already got almost as much traffic as indiepublic.com)

It's got stats for shop views so you know where your customers are coming from! I know! Gasp! Faint! Right? hehe

& it's just $7 a month (for the first 5000 artists) to list & sell as much as you can FOREVER. $7 a month no matter what! I signed up on that alone! haha

Anyhoo, it is new so there aren't zillions of people using it (which is good & bad) but I thought you might want to take a look at it. With the ad campaign they are working on kicking in soon (or so they are saying), I think it's going to be a good place to start listing!

If you sign up, give me a yell & let me know what you think!

Always,
Amy

I'm following you at twitter now! I've joined artfire too, and it is incredibly easy to list items. Haven't had a sale yet, but I am still listing all my other items!
