  1. Once I was in a Treasury, but my listing was below the fold….and not really seen on the Front Page even though in the Treasury.

    So close, yet so far away!

  2. My art has never been featured on the front page and I’ve been on Etsy since 2006. My fairies don’t let that get them down, though. ;D

  3. Wow I think the second poll says it all! :)

  4. My Victorian Mouring Hat was featured on the front page of the Storque last Christmas season, b/c of our Milliners of Etsy Team.
    I saw my traffic triple for 2 days, then it slowly fell back to normal!!
    It probably would not have happened save for the team effort!!

  5. My work has been featured once on the front page in the 2 years I have been on Etsy.

    No sales followed though.

  6. Never been on the front page. The first Christmas I advertised because their was space but I don’t advertise anymore and have not seen a tick of difference up or down in my store. I have easily boosted my brand 100% over the years by Blogging, Twitter, FB and Empire Avenue. All that and I haven’t seen an up tick in sales only more traffic.

  7. I have been in 87 Treasuries, but never featured on the front page that I know of.

  8. Since it got so cluttered with Taste Test and Might Likes, I’ve pretty much stopped caring about the FP. Had to check the Craftcult Vault even to find out how many times I’ve been featured lately.

    But to be fair, I have to say that in the past I’ve gotten sales and custom orders from FP features.

  9. Can someone tell me how you know if you made the front page of Etsy ?

  10. I just finished a 3 day feature on the front page (Fri, Sat, Sun). I have found that it takes much work & perserverance to get there. Doesn’t just happen – & you have to have what people want. I may love some of my work, but others may not – I post what I’ve learned they will like. Also, tags, title, Description (part of which google picks up, joining groups, blogging about your products, blogging about others products(networking), putting shop links in your emails.

  11. I was in a treasury once – in 2007.

  12. I was featured once, but it didn`t help sales!

  13. So Craft Cult says I’ve been on there about 25 times, but I’m sure many of those were as alternates or below the first 12…

    Curators typically create treasuries searching tags by color, theme & items near the front of the search [recently listed]. Remember that listing tags may need to be updated too since Etsy reformatted how you create listings. No more *cheating* by using multiple [unrelated] words on a single tag line.

  14. I was on the front page once, at 4 am, 3 years ago. It was thrilling, but no sales came of it because of the time of day.

    I have heard that using a copyright or watermark on your images makes you much less likely to be featured on the front page, but because of the large amount of copyright theft I deal with for my tutu images, I can’t leave the copyright off. So I have pretty much let go of my front page hopes…

    We’ve never been on the front page. I kind of liken it to winning a million dollars. Would be nice, but probably won’t happen.

  16. I’ve been in the top three rows of 9 FP treasuries, and 5 of those items sold. I’ve been an alternate in 8 other FP treasuries, and I think a few of those had enough sales to actually get the item on the FP with no resulting sales.

    And the vast majority of the FPs (12 of 17) were the result of being on teams – not the top FP generating teams, though.

    I’ve curated three FP treasuries, which is really winning the lottery, I feel, and much more rewarding.

    I’ve been on Etsy for one year, have 300 items in my shop, and 178 sales. Not as good as I’d like, but I plug along.
