Wow, here it is already at the end of September and we are still working on getting more traffic to our shops. My traffic has improved over the last month due to more time spent on Etsy Forums and tweeting more. I did realize that trying to work or spend time in 20 different threads was a waste of time so I picked 2 or 3 threads that were suited to my needs and have cultivated some great relationships with those other etsians in those threads. In turn, that has give me lots of exposure and referrals from other sellers that has turned into sales for my shop.
Twitter is a great way to get 20 to 30 people to look at a given item almost immediately. This usually translates into sales within 24 hours.
I also have started using craftopolis to see what more people are looking at so that I will know which sections are working and which sections are not working in my shop. Just these few little changes have resulted in a slow increase of sales in my Bounty Of Beads shop.
So, I will keep moving forward and I plan on trying to take full advantage of the upcoming Holiday Shopping Season.
