Yes you do which is why you have clicked on this post - thank you.
I’ve written a blog explaining (very briefly) what Folksy is.
I wanted something which I could share online via FB and which other people could read, without it necessarily relating directly to my own shop. So a blog that:
- Explains what Folksy is ie online shopping website, sells handmade goods only, British,
- Explains it is uncurated
- Asks people to use it for online shopping if they want handmade or bespoke gifts
It’s a small experiment to see if I can encourage people to join in and circulate it to their online friends. Will it make a difference to my sales? Maybe, maybe not. But if it raises the Folksy profile a bit more with my friends, then maybe others could do the same thing too and we’d build an avalanche of enthusiasm and awareness! There are 4000 of us after all and ultimately that must surely have an indirect impact of sales?
I’ve tagged the post details onto a couple of other threads too and any other ideas or examples of what you have done to raise the profile of the Folksy name (so not sales pitches but just general awareness) post them here and maybe we can build a mini database of best practices.
If you want to, you are welcome to take my post and as long as it’s rewritten so the language varies, you can publish it on your own blog. Or if you don’t want to rewrite it, you are welcome to share my blog or the FB post.
@folksycontent if you have any articles which you think would be good for this please let us know too ie something which talks about how Folksy was started maybe etc etc.
