November Sparklers Daily Listing Challenge Thread!


(Natalie Ofkants) #1

Good morning to the November Sparklers Daily listers and to all those taking part! Here’s to a month of sparkling sales for us all!

Please don’t forget to view each others items in situ in their shops, to ensure we have good viewing figures for our items and most importantly, let us know when you have a Folksy sale, so we can celebrate with you.

Please remember to post a link of your item in the thread, or clickable picture if you prefer. If we have a direct link, it makes it easier for us to look at your items.

I will endeavour to keep a tally of the months sales. Please let me know if I miss any.

Sorry! Only folksy sales can be added to the tally but happy to hear about and celebrate outside successes with you.

There is a Flickr group for a collective of all the folksy daily listing groups, so join in with this too please: http://www.flickr.com/groups/1693492@N24/

Twitter hashtag, for you twitter users is #folksygifts or #newonfolksy

For those wishing to repin, Carol has kindly given her Pinterest board and the link is:

And here is the FB link to Maxine’s wonderful shared page: https://www.facebook.com/groups/1481471495437850/

The collective reported tally for the November Sparklers by the end of yesterday was 491Sales!

Looking forward to seeing what everyone is going list!

Good morning sparklers!

I thought I would kick of the thread with an item that has plenty of sparkle! This knitted, crocheted and fully lined handbag, in a Sparkly golden yarn!

Good morning everyone.

According to Folksy I had 139 views yesterday, I don’t always check but the most I’ve ever seen is 133 but that was ages ago.

Have been back and caught up with pinning and loving fro last month. Can’t believe we’re in November!

(René Trewern) #8

Good morning all
Happy November!


(Steph Short Supplies) #9

Morning all!
Happy November!
Good luck to us sparklers this month, fingers crossed we all have lots of sparkly sales!!

I never ever looked at my views, don’t really want to, I’d immediately think I’m doing something wrong and start comparing myself and my work to others and always coming off worse than everyone else, so I never go there!

I’ll start a new pin board for this month and put the link up, in the mean time here’s mine today - a wooly Xmas with a hint of sparkles

Right I’m off now, it’s Saturday so that means one thing…housework!!!
Back later when I’m all done, Steph xx

Good morning Sparkles :boom:

Woweee Carol they are amazing views! I haven’t checked mine but they’ll be nothing like that I’m sure.

Here’s mine for today


(Charlotte ) #14

Gosh 1st November already…where does the time go?! Good luck this month everyone. Have viewed and loved your fabulous items above.

Mini lunch bag from me today and matching tea towel.


( Carol ) #15

I’m thinking the viewing figures must be wrong. How can Apryl @bluedaisyglass only have two views when so many of us tweet and pin? I don’t normally check them as like many I see them and get despondent. Even with the apparent good views yesterday I’m still thinking ‘well what’s wrong with my items then as not one of those views resulted in a sale’.

Anyway I haven’t done one for ages so here’s a one day sale item

(Liz Dyson) #16

I’m like Steph, I don’t often look at my views but I just did and got a whopping 10 views yesterday. Oh well, who cares? I’ve not been listing anything, so I don’t even get the daily listing views - so I suppose 10 is quite good.I know lots of people like to keep up with their views and I’ve heard you can get fabulous data from GA, but I don’t understand any of that so I stick with the sales when they come in. I’m discussing a sale at the moment, thanks to the lovely Julie of @NightOwlCreative, so I’ll probably get myself on the tally soon. Will I be the first? Loads to sort out before that, though, so I’ll get back as soon as I can.

Happy November, all.

PS, Carol, I love the colour of your scarf.


(Roz) #17

I’m a bit like that with the views too. I occasionally look at them but don’t think they really mean a lot - joining in with threads like these and others is going to artificially increase your views anyway and whilst I think that all the loving, tweeting etc helps to become more visible to others the “views” figures is fairly irrelevant. I’ve had days with zero or very few views where I have had sales and other days with relatively high views but no sales and at the end of the day its sales we want!


(Rachel) #18

Oh dear Liz it was probably me eyeing up your beads again :smiley:


(Maxine Veronica) #19

whoo first sale of the month!. One for the tally please Natalie @NOfkantsCurios :). I just checked my google analytics and it’s exactly the same number of views on there for yesterday 23, so seems my counter is working any rate which is not such good news lol!
