hello! well, i just want to say- thank you to everyone for all of your support! i’m so excited- this has all been totally a dream come true!
for now, i’m taking a (small) break from etsy- to do what? talk about etsy! today we’re going to discuss craft cult- have you been there? other than being totally addictive- it’s an *incredible tool for both shop owners and buyers. the heartomatic tool is great for shop owners and the vault is a great tool for buyers- however, both can be invaluable to everyone!
the heartomatic feature allows anyone to put in their own (or anyone else’s) shop name and see all relevant info at a glance. shop hearts, item hearts, time of day, sales, items, feedback- you name it, it’s there! for shop owners, this is a great tool to see who’s hearting what and when. then all you have to figure out is why!
did you find a peculiar spike in views on a particular item? all you have to do is head over to the ‘featured’ tab to see if you or any of your items were featured that day- on the homepage, in the gift guides, or in etsy’s blog the storque. so simple! ok- moving on to the vault! what an awesome feature- it’s s an archive of all the home page featured lists. talk about eye candy! not to mention food for the obsession- as well as endless inspiration!
finally, you can even draw up some graphs called heart charts to see all the activity going on in your shop- with a click of a button you can see who’s hearting- whether they’re buyers or sellers, female or male, and a whole slew of other useful information.
so shop owners: get to craft-culting and find out some great info that will help you know your buyers. and, buyers: go check it out and get to window shopping!
