Original Post

Hi there! I was wondering if anyone has any advice on how to more effectively promote one's store. I've got a facebook page that I actively promote, run sales and specials through FB and teams, frequently update my tags and make treasuries... I can't seem to really up my views and sales significantly... any ideas?

Sheila, I've asked around on several teams and haven't gotten any responses, so if you hear some good things, let me know!

Same here.

Blog is another way to reach people and market your product. It's free!

Giveaway is good, because people want free things and they'll sign up for it.
I've hosted 2 giveaways on my blog and had a great traffic. In fact, the winner of my last giveaway loved the items I sent her that she's ordering more.

I'm trying to keep up with some of the social medias out there, but it gets overwhelming.

Yes, I also did a giveaway on someone else's blog who approached me and it did bring traffic because the way to enter was to like my FB page, heart my Etsy, etc. Other than that, I just have an FB page and also renew my posts. I stopped making treasuries, not sure if that helped. I don't know! I see those people who have so many sales everyday and wonder as well if they are doing something different!
