So, for the past week I've been loving soap life - I've had an order almost every day, it's been "easy" for once...I'm not spending hours every day promoting, I was in a treasury, people seem to be finding me somehow without me really trying.
I was just in Etsy Forums and found this helpful post. It turned me on to a new tool called Featsy which will search etsy to see if you are featured anywhere (meaning gift guides and front page I believe...I think it's only if administrators choose you and doesn't search treasuries). Well, I found out that not only was I on the front page this week, but I have spent the week in the Gift guides!! I am so honored, seriously. And if finally gives me my answer as to why things have been suddenly different. I went a month without a sale...I know changing my photos helped a little, but I just couldn't understand how all of these people were FINDING me?! I suppose, really, changing my photos helped a LOT and posting the sampler pack was a good idea as likely the combo of those those two things are what got me on the gift guides.
Here is the gift guide I am in, Stocking Stuffers:
