Returning to Folksy?

(IainSByrne) #1


I had a Folksy shop some years ago before moving to Etsy, I create and sell wildlife art prints and cards.

There have been many changes lately on Etsy and my sales have gone down despite lots of social media promotion. What I would like to ask the Folksy community is would it be worth my while returning to Folksy.

Any advice from long term Folksy sellers would be appreciated,

Welcome back Iain.
I think sales are slow everywhere lately but seem to be picking up a bit in the last few weeks.
I have found that daily listing has increased my sales, as has becoming a PLUS member.
Hope you do well and come and join us on the Art Chat thread…

Hi Iain. I have found Etsy very hard. I have a plus account now and I find promoting is important. I use Instagram and this is the only way I have got sales. Worth ago. I think we all have our own best way to promote. But I don’t think the search is a way I get found.

Hi Iain

I’ve just returned to Folksy too (I was on about five years ago). I’ve noticed a difference on etsy since they introduced the changes as well. It will be interesting to see how things go on here.

All the best,

Thanks Yvonne, totally agree about Etsy and I don’t think going public will help, it will be all about shareholders and profits!! Good luck to you too.
