Attention Etsy Shop Sellers - you'll be interested in this new site, FanChimp! Basically, it's a program that you set up through and it will automatically post things from your shop onto Facebook and Twitter when it's the peak time to do so - it takes all the guesswork out for you. Let me tell you all about it....(and it's FREE trial)...
I think part of the struggle with Etsy Shops is promoting them - figuring out the rhythm of FB and Twitter is tricky and ever-changing. And even when you understand posting, etc, you still have to take the time a couple of times a day to post and promote. I love that this takes care of the social media side of things for your shop, and that you can set it up once for the whole week. That's how I like to do things! (like with my blog, I love to have several posts ready for the week - things just go smoother that way.)
