This week I started getting a lot of notifications that my Pom Pom Ice Cream garland was getting favourited by a lot of people and I wasn’t quite sure why. 

I probably should have done a little bit of digging earlier on but with me being relatively new to Etsy I figured this might just be the way that it goes sometimes.

This morning I thought I’d see if I could find out why. I logged in to my Etsy dashboard and had a look at the stats for the past week. I found out that my summer Pom Pom Ice Cream Garland had been featured on Etsy’s Fresh Shops listing, under the party essentials category.

I was really happy to find this out as promoting my products is probably the most time consuming part of my business and any help I can get on this is hugely appreciated.

It’s probably also worth pointing out that Etsy is still a bit of a mystery to me. Beyond adding tags to products there doesn’t seem to be that much that you can do to actually increase your products’ visibility.

If anyone has any tips on that front – I’m open to ideas. I’ve read a lot of Etsy’s guides and spent a while in the Etsy forums but a lot of the advice is very similar – tweak your tags, change your title. There’s got to be more to it than that.

Anyway, onwards and upwards. Here’s hoping that this is the start of something!
