Do you believe there is any relationship between the number of sales a shop makes and the number of hearts they have?
Great question! I do think there is a relationship between the number of hearts a shop has and the number of sales. Shops with a lot of sales almost always have a ton of hearts. Some shops have a ton of hearts but not very many sales. These shops usually have more expensive items that are really amazing, but don’t sell as frequently as less expensive items.
How do you market your Etsy shop?
We (my business partner and the love of my life, Mark, and I) want to start doing more to market our shop. I participate a lot in the forums, not really to market my shop, but just to hear what others are saying and thinking. We also use flickr, facebook, and google adwords. We have been fortunate enough to get some really great press on Design Sponge, She Unlimited, and will be featured in an upcoming issue of NEET magazine.
