Hi, as the title says I’m thinking of coming back to Folksy and giving it a real shot.
I did try selling on here before, but I had just started up and didn’t really give it much of a go, had no idea about SEO and didn’t have much in the way of listings, so of course I failed miserably.
I currently have 3 shops on the other selling place which i haven’t really done an awful lot with, but I would like to start putting a lot of effort into one place or the other as I’m not convinced that running the same shops on both platforms is workable.
A few questions…
Can i run multiple shops on Folksy without having 3 different emails? thats what I currently have an it’s a little infuriating.
I have 3 shops because I do 3 different types of crafts. 1 is a wooly things shop with my crochet, knitting and felting, another is full of my sewn items, including CE tested dolls and stuffies, quilts and art dolls. The 3rd that I have recently opened is for items that are more adult in nature, specifically cross stitch and embroidery hoops with swearing and subversive quotes. Can anyone give me an idea of how these various things sell on folksy?
Is it recommended to only run shops on 1 platform?
Is folksy still seller driven sales or have they started doing any sort of advertising and getting the name out there? I would imagine that alot of people would love to buy British if they knew about it! I understand that I need to do some driving of sales to my shops, but I also don’t want to have to spend all day at the pc in order to do it.
And of course, hows are sales in general? Is it worth me coming back at this point?
Thankyou for any answers you can give xx
