I agree with Kim @KBCreations. Promotion is everything. Social media promotion is a marathon, rather than a sprint and it can take a while to build up a following, but it is worth doing. Today’s follower could be tomorrow’s customer. I promote to Pinterest, Instagram and Facebook. Instagram is good for building up a following quickly. Experiment with different hashtags and see which ones bring the most people to your page.
Joining in with the promotional activity in the forums (like the daily or weekly listing threads) can improve your visibility on Folksy itself. We favourite each others listings and promote as many as we can on social media. It is a lot of work, but when I’m not doing it, my views and sales tend to dry up. I have favourited your shop and your items to get the ball rolling.
Think of your Folksy shop as your own website. You would have to direct your own customers to a website, Folksy is much the same (only much cheaper and easier to manage).
Participate in some craft fairs in your local area and have business cards ready. I have got customers to my Folksy shop that way.
Personally, I wouldn’t say that “money is tight” in my about me section, even though it might well be. I don’t think customers need to know about your finances (perhaps that’s just me, I would find it a bit off putting).
Everyone is very helpful here, but for most of us, that first sale was quite a long time coming. Those that don’t give up can do quite well, so the best of luck. ,
