The other day I noticed an unusually high number of Etsy favorite notifications on my phone – which, as it turns out, were due to click-through traffic from Buzzfeed. The listicle “29 Perfect Merit Badges for Adults” featured three of my Snarky Scouts badges: Instagram Selfies, Skinny Dipping, and Dirty Dancing.
This is awesome because A) it’s just awesome to see one’s work listed alongside other cool projects; B) my Etsy shop’s traffic has gone up; and C) lots of people are marking badges as “favorites” in Etsy.
However, these views aren’t yet translating to sales. So far I’ve had only one, and that was to a cool dude in the UK.
C’mon Americans! I’m impatient and you should be too!
But the good thing about having more people favorite my work is that when I list new items, they very well might show up on those folks’ Etsy homepages. Time to list some of my new designs!
