i’d never seen the artfire site before. it looks interesting, similar to etsy. as a user, what are your thoughts about it? have you had much success with it?

ArtFire is a really new site, less than a year old and still growing. It is way more user friendly, from a sellers viewpoint than Etsy is. My traffic is about 1/2 of what I see at Etsy. But my store is only 2 months old @ ArtFire, and 10 months old at Etsy. I just sold 2 items on Etsy today, bringing my sales total to 25 items, compared to 0 at ArtFire. But I have high hopes for my AtrFire shop. I have not listed as many items on ArtFire as I have on Etsy, but I’m about to. This internet marketing is a whole different ballgame than selling at shows and to local shops. I spend a lot of time posting and promoting my goods online. It’s very easy to spend more time marketing than building things.
Here are 2 links to my two shops so you can see how they compare.
