So..oo if you have never purchased an etsy showcase spot , here 'tis
I paid $7 .. one of my artworks is featured for 24 hours on the art showcase..
Here are the stats.. Thursday pre showcase vs Thursday day of showcase
items viewed in my shop none / 291
items sold none / 1 original painting
art bookmarked ( hearted) none / 15
my shop bookmarked (hearted) none / 10
Now I am not that great at math .. but that wasn't bad for 7 bucks methinks!
I decided marketing is probably something I need to buckle up and do.. yes it's boring and kinda sucks.. but Helen Wheeler-Shaw and The Willows Nest shall remain 'undiscovered no longer .. amid the sea of 40 billion other artists on etsy hehe!!
