I am so excited my first sale on Folksy, 2 cards to the same lady. I spent ALL Sunday re-tagging and re-categorising and it seems to have paid off.
Ooh well done you! I have yet to make a sale. When you say re tagging do you mean you changed your keywords? I think I need to look into that.
Congratulations! I love your parrots
lovely I think Folksy is a wonderful place to sell on and so unique.
Congratz!!! Great news!
Congratulations. Here’s to many more
Fantastic news, congrats
We’ve got 15 keywords now instead of 5
Ah, obviously worth doing then!
Hi Everyone, thank you all so much for celebrating with me. So hopefully Onward and Upward.
Thank you Sarah I love Parrots too so colourful and Cheeky.
Hi, Flowers and Frolics when I started I did greeting cards, but at the craft fairs I found Animals, Birds etc. sold very quickly. I started to concentrate on those and rather left the Ribbons and Bows behind. I suddenly realised that I was actually in a different category, plus Quilling isn’t very well known so few people will actually search for Quilling which is what I was relying on . So I had a look at what sort of tags the Artists use also Animals is a good category. I still left quilling in but added Artists, Animals, Pets etc. it gets repetative but it seems to reach a wider audience. Perhaps fashion, fabric, make up bags , sewing, floral,flirty skirts you get the idea think outside the box as they say. Good Luck
Thanks so much for your suggestions, I hadn’t thought of some of those, I will give it a try!
Congratulations - the first sale is always the hardest one!
Yay congratulations love your cards
