Good to hear it's working for you! :) I'm thinking of starting to use Facebook soon so it's nice to hear positive feedback about it.

Congrats on the sales! I just started a facebook page and am really hoping it works, so it is very encouraging to hear that it did for you!

I have 305 likes and I don't get sales from mine really. Must be just people who liked my page to get more coverage. PFFFTTT.
I really don't know whether FB works for me at all. I am having a mother's day sale but nothing happening yet!
But glad to know its working for you!

I did set up a facebook page the other day, but sadly I can't have a timeline cover photo, as the 'save changes' button is not there! has anyone else had this problem?

I was having issues today trying to update the profile pic while using Firefox so I switched to Google Chrome and ta-da, it went through. Maybe try using a different browser?! Good luck.
I do a lot of custom orders so I use my fb page to post photos of my completed custom orders that I can't post on Etsy, not enough room, I think it helps my customers see what kinds of customization is possible.
I ran a sale for my Facebook fans for Earth Day, and it was a pretty substantial discount too--but I only had two buyers use the coupon code, out of 600+ fans. I was a little disappointed by that to be honest. That said, I do think that Facebook has been a great place to gain long-term repeat customers for my shop.
A lot of fans at least in my case are other sellers and while it looks impressive to have lots of likes, I'm not sure how many sellers will be buying from me. I'm not saying that some won't, I buy from Etsy sellers, but I don't know if I will get tons of sales from other sellers.
Congrats on the sales Alona, that's wonderful!

I have a FB business page, and have gotten sales from it. It's nice to hear the feedback on my jewelry there, too, and to see what other people are doing and making. I've also purchased items from shops I found via FB.
