I read an interesting comment on a FB post this morning. Admittedly it wasn’t about Folksy but related to the other side and that well known auction site but it made me wonder whether Folksy worked the same way. Basically someone said that with a listing for multiple items, that once one had sold it caused the listing to rank higher in the searches and more sales followed creating an avalanche effect until they had to remove the listing to edit it and then start again, at which point the sales stopped. It made me wonder whether it worked against those of us who make one offs who would never achieve this status. It also begs the question of whether the addition of variations to our listings might help - i.e… I make something in 10 colours but instead of 1 listing for each colour I had one listing with 10 variations allowing a sale of one to boost the remainder.
Does anyone have any thoughts on this?
