Folksy Ltd

Promoting Folksy

Hi Kirsty. I do have an Instagram account for another shop on E#$y but TBH it hasn’t made any difference to sales or visits (or lack thereof!) so far. I hope when I do a Folksy one at least I might get going with a base of followers etc, which is nice, but they will be other makers, not necessarily buyers! Haven’t managed to crack that one yet!! But for sure, the Folksy community is super supportive compared to ‘the dark side’.Wishing you the best for 2021😊

Can you not use the same Instagram Account? You can put both shops onto a Linktree page. I am a fairly new Instagram user and I am just getting to grips with it but I know I wouldn’t want to be trying to run 2 accounts!
All the best to you as well, I hope 2021 is an excellent year!

It’s a totally different shop (selling only jewellery) but will try Linktree when I set up a Bimble Bird page. I may be pestering you for advice on that​:laughing::grinning_face_with_smiling_eyes:

This is my board ready for tomorrow.

I probably spend too long thinking about eating!

You are welcome, it’s a great jug.
I use Canva, the free version… It helps! I think someone posted how to do it somewhere at the start of this thread.

Thank you so much for using my earring image. I’m so useless with the forum, I can only really work out how to use Instagram. Happy new year x

Thank you Lou for posting my rainbow felt soap :rainbow:

I will get round to making a Folksy Friday one day, when I get my acts together with social media… in the meantime, take care of each other everyone (I have just lost a dear friend today and feel quite emotional…)

Hi Alexandra, you’re welcome it’s a lovely item. Sorry to hear about your friend, sending lots of hugs your way. Take care, Lou
