So, I have no new followers so far, and I only got 4 views on etsy yesterday. Bummer. I have however, figured out that my most popular posts are image posts, and they are seen by the most people if they are posted some time during the day, in the 10 AM to 4 PM range. So I’ve set up my posts for a couple of days in advance keeping that in mind, using the post scheduler Facebook has built in. Yay for working ahead!
On that note, I think a big part of what will make my shop, and my Facebook more successful is better photos. I have a bit of a problem right now in that I am at college and so I live in a dorm. There is almost no natural light, and the floor is a disgusting, hide-all-mess kind of carpet. So my pictures are going to be pretty crappy no matter how I stage them, because I don’t have anything not blue to stage my owls on anyway. Oh well for now, I can fix that when I get home.
Another thing I think will be better when I get home is that I will have more products available. Right now, I only have 13 owls up on my site, which is a pitiful number compared to some very successful etsy shop owners. But, I just sewed eyes onto 12 more owls, which means all I have to do is sew them to their backs and stuff them, and I will have 12 more owls, nearly doubling my inventory! Again, yay for working ahead!
So yes, this post is Facebook Challenge – Day 3, and should be more about how my Facebook endeavors are going, but for right now, I have no news to report, and am a little at a loss as to what to do next. So, I will continue researching, and I will continue sewing, and I will probably continue watching far too much Netflix and eating far too much ice cream, and hopefully for Day 4 I will have news!
