 Handmade Twitter Blueprint

the handmade twitter blueprint

 

Have you scoffed at the idea of using Twitter?  Do you think you’re too old to learn a new technology application?  I hope to make Twitter so easy to learn that even a Grandma or Grandpa can learn to use it. (Although I’m not a grandparent, I am 48 and know quite a few grandparents on Twitter!)  For the handmade world, Twitter can be like hanging out at the water cooler.  It gives you a chance to have conversations with people who share some of your interests and offers an opportunity to broaden exposure for you and your products.

I will walk you through the steps of creating a Twitter account and using it effectively to promote your handmade business.  We will cover the following:

The breakdown of each day.

Day 1 – Getting Started

Day 2 – Building Followers

Day 3 – Getting in on the Conversation

Day 4 – The Power of the Network.

Day 5 – Tools to Help Manage your Twitter Life

2 Bonus days!

Day 6 – How to grow and nurture your Twitter following.

Day 7 – Long list of helpful links to awesome Twitter and social media marketing articles.

 

 

etsy relevancy

 

By now most Etsy sellers have heard about the Etsy relevancy search change.  When I cruse the Etsy forums, team discussions, Facebook fan pages, comments on Handmadeology, and my inbox,  a common theme seems to pop up over and over.   Sellers are trying to understand what the changes to the Etsy default search mean, and how they can make the correct changes to get the most traffic that leads to sales.

The Handmadeology team has put together a FREE package that will help every Etsy sellers understand what the new Etsy search is all about.  The Etsy Relevancy Breakdown walks you through every thing that has changed when the search default was changed to relevancy. In this report you will also find helpful tips with will set you on the right path to increasing your views and getting more sales.   Also in this package you will get a 12 point checklist that will help keep you on track when you are listing new items and optimizing your shop for the Etsy search and Google.

Etsy Traffic Log / Goal Tracker

Etsy traffic log

You know how important traffic is.  Without traffic you would have zero sales.  The idea behind the Etsy Traffic Log is to help you keep track where your traffic is coming from from an entire year.  The goal-tracking feature is designed to help you keep motivated and strive for more traffic. Traffic  = Sales!

Here is a screen shot of what the Etsy Traffic Tracker looks like.  You will notice your traffic will be broken down by day and week.  The Goal Tracking feature is simple to use. Just enter your traffic goal and the traffic count down is updates every time you enter more traffic.
