So, do you reckon it’s just us? And no-one else ever visits? There are over 6000 sellers on here, and every time I go on the home page, it tells me maybe a couple of hundred folk are browsing, surely at any given time, there will be a couple of hundred sellers logged on.
So it leaves me to think that Folksy has us lot stumbling around buying the odd thing from one another, and everything else we sell, is as a result of our own promotion. I know that I direct traffic from pinterest, and Facebook etc. but wonder if Folksy will ever be popular as a whole with anyone other than it’s sellers.
Everyone I know who also has an Etsy shop, does better on there than here, but I love my little Folksy shop, and get a fair amount of sales, so will be sticking with it. I hope one day that word will spread about this wonderful place with little hand-made businesses selling unique and unusual goodies - I fear we are the best kept secret
I will continue to spread the word, I think folksy is a lovely place. I do wish we could have a ‘search this shop’ facility, this would be useful both as a buyer and a seller, but otherwise - for me Folksy is THE place to shop. So I’m off now, for a little stumble around - maybe I’ll bump into someone else - though I doubt it!
I’ll be more likely to get caught up in a tumble weed …
