Thought I would share my great discovery with you. I just changed the categories of my shop after a friend who was browsing explained how she searched websites). Instead of doing the categegories by type of object, I did gift guide categories (ie gifts for him, gifts for teachers, secret Santa gifts under a fiver etc to make it more shopper friendly. It seems to be working a treat and I can see from google analytics that lots of people are searching in a particular category for ages (especially adult humour!). Def worth experimenting with to boost sales. Cheers and good luck x
Morning Natalie, thank you for a lovely idea, i hope it works for you, i may just give it a try and see if it makes a difference in my shop too
Lovely of you to share, Natalie! I always struggle with tags, categories and things - may have to look at mine again!
That’s an excellent idea and really good of you to share it. I’m going to have to use my imagination to come up with ‘Crochet Gifts for Him!’ but definitely worth a try. thank you.
What a good idea! Well worth a try! Thanks for sharing the tip
Thank you for sharing! I have had a little look to see how I could use this and now have a new section for ‘Gifts £5 and under’, just to see how this works for Christmas. I was a bit surprised that my new section has 31 items in it!
Thanks for sharing this idea, I may give this a go as my last sale on folksy was back in 2014. I need to start selling here again.
Thanks Natalie @Mungbean - a great tip, I’ve changed the title of one of my collections to ‘Gifts £10 and under’ - fingers crossed it works
Thanks for sharing Natalie, shall have to look into this
Great idea, and thanks for sharing Natalie, I’ll have to have a little think about my categories
Thank you for the great idea. I’ve just done some updating, but it will be a work in progress I imagine
Update- I’ve had a sale this evening
Looks like this is working for some of you, I’d better give it a try. Thank you for the top tip.
Thank you Natalie…I think this is great idea…I am going to look at my listings today…x
Thank you for sharing …great tip…
Thanks for sharing. I suppose like everything else when you really think about it makes perfect sense - but it’s one of those things that doesn’t automatically spring to mind
