Etsy has a new and exciting feature that allows you to connect your Facebook Page and Twitter account to your Etsy shop. This is a great way to let shoppers know about your presence on these sites so they can keep up with your shop!
A Facebook Page offers a rich opportunity to connect with your customers. You can provide news about your shop, share inspiration and process photos, and offer promotions. If you don’t have a Facebook Page yet, but would like to create one, this tutorial will show you how!
Get started: You’ll first need to already have a Facebook account to have a Page, so sign up if you don’t have an account. Then, go here to create a page and follow the prompts. I’ve seen sellers use either the option to register as a company or as a brand — it’s up to you!
Steps 1 and 2: Next, upload an image to represent your shop. An interesting item from your shop is a great choice for your avatar! On the next page, uncheck the options to share and like this page. This will allow you to make any changes before making your page highly visible. You can do these things later once you have made sure your page is the way you want it.
Step 3: Provide a link to your Etsy shop, and give some information about your business! If you have writer’s block, try looking in your Etsy Profile for inspiration, or reading this post about writing an engaging profile for tips.
Next steps: Okay, now your page is set up! Check out the ideas under Get Started, which is the next page that you are taken to. You can start adding content, promoting your page, and more!
Questions? Please see Facebook’s Page help section, and ask for advice from sellers in the Etsy Success forum or the Business Topics forum. Be sure to read Etsy’s Guide to Facebook to hear how other sellers socialize responsibly and effectively. Good luck with your new Page!
