I just joined this group and I am also new to the etsy seller world!
Scary and exciting at the same time. I make angel dolls. I firmly needle felt them and then add embellishments to give them a mixed media feel. I am slowly adding more mixed media components to the dolls as I make them.
Anyway, I am trying to build traffic to my etsy shop. Any tips? I am obsessed with the shop stats and have to admit it is a downer when those numbers don't seem to go up!

Welcome! I'm pretty new myself, but I've noticed an uptick in my stats when my dolls were in a couple of treasuries. So, along with favoriting and circling, try creating treasuries and chances are the folks you put in your treasury, might put something of yours in a treasury they create. There's no guarantee they will, but it's another way of getting yourself out there.

I have just joined this team here and already hearing some really good tips on promoting and exposure etc. I am not very good at advertising my shop so need all the helpful advice I can get. I know that I do love looking at treasuries and find the etsy purchases I make are often found in a treasury - so they must be good selling features. Now I just have to work out how to do a treasury or get into more of them! Anyway love the team and many thanks for good suggestions.
