 Instructions:

You tweet the item(s) for me and all the posts above yours, along with your twitter account so we can follow you, and list 1-2 items (clickable links) from any of your online shops that you would like for all those posting here to tweet for you. No more than two items, please. ( No "mature" items, please). Be sure the item is twitter ready. (See below) Check back throughout the day and tweet all the new items posted from other online shops. Etsy, ArtFire, Zibbet, Bonanzle, ebay, your own website, etc..  Retweet our hashtag during the evening hours. Spread your tweets out so that people will click on the links.





Please add our NEW tag to your tweets. "#RETWT" This way we can Retweet later in the day, simply by searching the hash tag. We are not using "Bluebird" any longer. Thanks!




Limit of two (2) hashtags.

Some hashtags are automatic, and so to explain...

Example:

Here's what appears when I click "tweet" on an item:

Knit Lip Balm Lipstick pouch Black | ChristieCottage - Knitting on ArtFire... #handmade #artfire http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/3935206

 Here's the acceptable post for this item:

Knit Lip Balm Lipstick pouch Black @ChristieCottage #handmade #artfire http://www.artfire.com/ext/shop/product_view/3935206 #AFPP  #RETWT

By reaching out thru blogger and blog follower's twitter accounts, we will reach a new audience of viewers and hopefully land some sales. After all, we all have our online shops to make sales.

Tweet the blog link hosting the Twitter Tree© each day to get more participants. If benefits all of us.

Invite your friends!

  25. Quick question to all...

    I'm currently on Etsy but am considering trying out ArtFire, too. What do you all think of Artfire? Pros? Cons?

    ReplyDelete
  26. I came back and tweeted everyone and scheduled for later tonight. How is Artfire? I only average 2 sales a month on Etsy right now so I am worried about wasting $15 on nothing

    ReplyDelete
    Replies
    1. Korinne, I'm a little nervous about the $15 a month, too, considering how sales are going right now. I know these months are notorious for being crappy for sales, though, so I'm trying not to take it too personally. :)

      Delete
  27. tweeted everyone will check back again later
    The ArtisanButterfly I am on both and both are so slow right now it's crazy

    I will say what I do like about ArtFire is one fee a month so fees to list and final value fees like on Etsy

    ReplyDelete
  28. Korinne and Artisan I was lucky and signed up when artfire did the 5.95 a month, I don't believe I would sigh up at the 15.00 a month there has been a lot of times lately I have almost closed my Art Fire shop but I hang in there

    You could check into yardsellar too or Zibbet

    ReplyDelete
  29. I am caught up to here.

    I wish everyone great sales but I am glad I am not the only one struggling. I was really starting to wonder what was wrong with my shops.

    Good luck everyone.

  30. As for Artfire. I found those that stayed ahead are listing consistently. The more you list, the more exposure.

    Also posting in the forums. More posts = more exposure.

    That said, I closed my account last year. Could not generate enough sales to justify keeping that store. I sold 10 things on Etsy for every sale I had on Artfire. :(

    1. That is exactly the kind of information I was looking for! Thank you.

      I've signed up for the 2-week free trial but I have a feeling it'll take me that long to learn it and I won't have any time left over to make any sales.

      I pay about $15 a month in Etsy fees so I was thinking it would be worth it for the extra exposure but if I can't expect to generate as many sales as Etsy then it's probably not worth it.

      Big thanks!

    2. It was just the opposite for me. I had an Etsy shop for about 4 months before opening an ArtFire shop at the $5.95 price. ArtFire took off for me where Etsy did nothing, 1 sale in 9 months on Etsy - and that was not for lack of trying ): Finally closed the Etsy shop because I was tired of paying the fees, etc. and to concentrate on ArtFire. ArtFire is quite a bit different than Etsy and makes more sense to me. Also have a Zibbet shop and a SupaDupa one (both free) but haven't done much with them Lack of time! My sales have been consistent on ArtFire with a real flurry of activity lately :) I think each person has their niche on selling venues. ArtFire is mine.

    3. Maybe I'll give ArtFire a month or two before deciding. Of course, now probably isn't the time to be testing it out (especially at $12.95 a month). I assume sales there have slowed, too. Maybe I should wait until sales pick up bit. Thanks for the help!

  31. done for the day. off to a nice dinner and some port afterwards. maybe that will bring the sales dust to us all,,,
