Also, just a suggestion:

I've noticed the more pages/shops I find and "friend" or "follow" (depending on the networking site), the more I get. So, when I find other Etsy Shops promoting on Facebook, I "like" and "Suggest Friends," in hopes that they might do the same, so we can all help each other boost viewing stats. On Twitter, I try to find all of the people I regularly network with, as well as other fellow Etsy Shop Owners. Again, I'm noticing the more I "follow," the more I get "followed!" It's pretty cool, actually!

So, don't just look at someone's Etsy FB page, "like" it and "suggest" it, so the love returns back to you! On Twitter, follow other Etsy Shops who follow you! ;o)

To all,

If none of you have a facebook fan page, yet. I fully suggest you make one. It's easy to do. Plus, only 7 of my friends have fanned me so far, but I've had almost 100 views to my page.. I don't know if it's brought any sales. But, you have to admit that's a lot of views for 1 week.

That's why I recently joined Twitter. I noticed quite a bit of traffic referral from there, but never used it myself. So, why not? It's free, after all. . . I've noticed the Etsy On Sale App gets quite a bit of traffic too.

"Etsy On Sale App"? Not sure what that is. Care to share?

www.etsyonsale.com has a video about it. You basically plug in what type of sale you want in which sections of your shop on specific dates and create a sales event and the app sets up your shop with the sale for you.

you can also start a sqidoo lens that links back to your shop. sqidoo is similar to a blog, and you can get paid from it. the more lenses you make the more you can link to your shop. you do the lenses on tips and topics you would like to share with the public.
this is mine, just to give you an idea.
