I was wondering if anyone can help. I have been on Folksy a few months now and I haven’t had any sales yet and I have very minimal visits to my shop! I have recently changed careers as a result of family commitments and having retrained from IT to jewellery design. I’ve had a successful training year making bespoke jewellery to my friend and acquaintances network but I’m struggling to get any traffic to any of my online presence. I was hoping that Folksy would be a good step as it has a such a strong handmade brand. I’ve tried to put quite a range of products and prices in my shop to have a wider appeal but still no luck yet.
Can anyone give me any advice as to how I can get some traffic to my shop and how I get featured on a Folksy blog/email/Facebook feed to get the ball rolling e.g… I noticed a Luxury Item link today which would have been great to be included. Is it possible pay for adverts?
I’ve be grateful of any help.
