Original Post

Hi everyone!

I joined this lovely team just about a week ago and I want to first start by saying that your support and feedback has helped me tremendously. I have improved so much about my shop and had my first sale! So, thank you again for being there.

I want to help others the way you have helped me. I created this discussion thread because I want people to be able to share their online networking and promotion sources so that others can benefit as well. My personal favorite is wanelo.com -- it lets you connect directly to the etsy store they promote for, it's free, and seems to get a lot of traffic. The others I have used include, of course, facebook and pinterest.

SO, with all of that in mind -- leave feedback here on the places you go online to promote your shop! Anything is appreciated :)

Thank you for your advice. I just went to wanelo.com and posted one of our items. What happens there if you sell your item?

Posting to wanelo essentially allows people to view your product through that website, but in order to purchase they are sent back to your etsy store. It's kind of like pinterest in that way, though I have found it to be much easier and more accessible. What else do you use to promote?

Thanks for this info - I just listed 2 items on Wanelo. I'll be watching to see how many views I get from there. Seems like a great way to get things noticed - I'm hoping it will increase activity in my shop! :)
