Etsy has a lot of its own promotion capability right on their site. 1. Showcase – This is where you purchase a spot and it is shown at the top of the page under the appropriate category. It shows on the page as a “sponsored” item.2. Treasury – This a member-curated list of 16 items that a member creates based on their interests. It does not contain their shop items. It also rotates and will show up at least once on the main Etsy page.3. Etsy Picks – This is items that the Etsy ...

Online R Us #4: You're Never Too Old for Facebook

1204 days ago by closetguy | 10 comments »

I have to confess, being an older guy, I would have never had anything to do with Facebook if it wasn’t for my kids and family. Since they are scattered all over the place, Facebook is the only way I can keep in touch, see Nephews and Nieces as they grow up, and socialize with people I grew up with. It amazes me how much activity goes on with just the people in my friend and family list. I’m also bad about taking a picture of snow outside our house and posting it on Facebook my everyone to...

Online R Us #3: Tweet, Tweet

1207 days ago by closetguy | 3 comments »

Twitter is about the dumbest thing I have ever seen. It took me over a year to figure out what it really was. I would go fiddle with it for a while, throw my hand up in frustration and walk away, only to return a month later to try again to understand it. It’s basically the Internet version of a CB radio. It’s funny how we have come full circle from the 70s. I can’t understand how people can sit there making short comments all day long, but many do. It may be stupid, but Twitter is to...

Crafts Shows R Us #19: Online Sales in 2010

1211 days ago by closetguy | 24 comments »

This is a continuation of my discussion on 2010 craft sales. The previous blog was getting a little lengthy and since I am switching gears, it seemed to be a good place to split the narrative. If you didn’t read the last one, you should after you finish this one (or preferably before). Just like the shows, my online sales doubled from 2009. A better economy made this possible. But I also had sales coming from sources that I have never experienced until last year. My only online store ...

Crafts Shows R Us #8: It's Cold Outside

2075 days ago by closetguy | 8 comments »

Today was the start of another outdoor craft show for me with a 6AM setup time. I got up at 4:30AM, looked at my outside temperature gauge, saw that it was 30 degrees, and went back to bed. Call me a wimp, but I don’t do below freezing. There’s something just not right about icicles hanging off a canopy, and my down comforter was beckoning me back to bed. The high today was 42 and windy, so if anyone showed up at that show, they are better men and women than me. I hated losing my $150 e...
