When I see a post, I tend to look at the avatar first and more likely click on ones that is colorful or "fun". Not sure why but I do! So, do you think my avatar ur.... "click-able"?

I agree, often I click on ones that I like and think represent the shop items... often they don't, though! And yes, yours is clickable for people who might be looking for dolls especially.

... or doll clothes. Cute shop!

Thanks! I agreed some avatars do not represent what in the shop at all :) Ooh, I love the fresh feeling of lime green and polka dots patterns on your avatar, clicked! Nice products!

Yes, I absolutely look at everyone's Avatar. I find they say a lot about a shop and the owner.

I think the avatar is very important to your brand.

I agree and I don't click on an avatar that is left blank.

I never click on an avatar- but I am beginning to understand the importance and am working on 'branding' my shops.

I click on the person's name or shop- never the avatar.


I look forward to hearing more!

I do look at the avatar, often first! :O)

I do think the avatar is important and I often wonder about replacing mine with a piece from my shop, but I've heard some people like to see the shop owner....hard to know which is best.
