I've done like many of you other crafters out there and joined a few of the social media sites to self promote my items. I joined facebook, flickr, started blogging, and joined twitter. My favorite thing to do, I hate to admit, is tweet.
All this week I've been conducting a mini survey of my own to see if it really helps with getting your items seen. I can honestly say that it does. I wrote down the views for some of my items and then tweeted about them. The views on my Etsy items and e-bay items definitely went up compared to last weeks views when I wasn't into shameless self promoting.
Now I haven't had a sale from any of my tweets but at least there are more people out there looking at my crafts. And that's a good thing!
