I also did a very detailed blog post with all the details of each activity the thread has;
So, all the shops in the thread spent 30 minutes on Saturday promoting my shop as much as they could throughout the internet. EVERYONE in the thread was incredibly supportive but several really went above and beyond.
First, I tried to highlight as many of the thread mates in this beautiful treasury.
AMAZING shops in that treasury!! And now I want to try to highlight a few of the shops that
One shop actually started promoted me a few days before the solo frenzy, in order to help get items onto Stumbleupon so others could rate those listings! Incredibly generous and nice.
Her shop is really amazing. She is a paper artist...
Look at these beautiful keepsake boxes with roses on top!
And one other item that I think are really nice are her paper beads! They are lightweight, unique and very affordable!
Another shop: http://www.etsy.com/shop/bijibijoux
She likes to work with, high-quality glass beads, Swarovski crystals, gemstones, freshwater pearls, and wood. She partnered up with another shop (the 3rd one I am going to feature here) and help promote and organize the promotions the entired day!
Look at these amazing earrings!
She has a matching necklace to go with it too;
Last but certainly not least... http://www.etsy.com/shop/jQjewelrydesigns
She specializes in an eclectic variety of high quality gemstones.
Check out this amazing bracelet!
jQ is a really organized, detail oriented person. She created list after list yesterday to organize what had been promoted and what still needed promoted! I mean not a single inch of my shop was left out!
Well the results are absolutely phenomenal! I had over 1500 new views on the very 1st page of my shop. Over 30 item hearts on those items on the first page and since yesterday 10 new shop hearts!!!
The 2nd page had over 700 views!
3rd page over 300 views!
The rest of the pages had 300 views except the last 2 had about 100.
There were around 5-10 hearts on each page!!!
The question asked the most is how many sales... well I had one from a friend in the thread that was very kind to buy a pair of earrings but no others directly related YET.
But I can't emphasize enough, that there is NEVER an instant thing you can do to bring in a boatload of sales.
The amount of promoting done through so many sites on the internet such as blogs or stumbleupon.com provides very valuable backlinks to my shop that will help in the long term with visibility and search engine rankings. So over time this will help a lot. I am positive sales are coming LOL
I can't thank you all enough. I am sorry there is no way to feature over 20 shops in this blog at one time. But the treasury really represents many that aren't featured here. And to the left of this post is a list of all of our participating shops!
THANK YOU EVERYONE!
