Original Post

Joined Etsy over three years ago...

My shop died a slow death since day one.

Then I learned about light boxes... curses!
Then I learned about renewing... curses!
Then I learned about Treasury teams... curses!
Then I learned about Blogging...curses!
Then I learned about Twitter... curses!

I got me a:
Twitter account
Facebook account
A Blog
Made a Light Box

Soooo....

I practiced taking product photography...
I practiced writing descriptive descriptions...
I looked for teams to join...
I wrote on my blog...
I wrote on Twitter...
I wrote on Facebook...

What did it get me?

Nada
Zero
Zilch

Now... if you make it work, good on you! What didn't work for me, might very well work for you.

What works for one shop, doesn't mean it work for another. :)

Do what you feel comfortable with. :)
