I've found a site that I'm finding useful.  Check out 34 Ways To Promote Your Online Shop Like A Pro.  That in conjunction with browsing the bits in the forum are helpful.

Hey y'all!  I'm Gini of Ginspired Arts.  I am a silversmith, painter, woodworker, chainmailler, builder and all-around artsy-fartsy type.
I was on Etsy back when it was only handcrafted stuff, then they decided to become what is basically an online WalMart so I stepped away.  I still have a shop there where I sell jump rings for maillers that gets pretty much no action.
I can't believe this site has been around since 2009 and I just found it.  I'm so glad this is here.
I'll set up my shop and hopefully start selling.  I spend about 5 months a year on an island in the Caribbean, so I won't be able to sell during that time...hopefully I'll be able to put my shop here on vacation during that time.

I do have one question...why is there not a "follow us" link to Instagram?  Just wondering.

I  had  both  hips  replaced  in  1989....    2  separate  trips  to  the  hospital.    Most  days  the hips   are all  I  have that  don't hurt.    I   recommend  it  to  all  I   see.

I'm a relatively new member with a developing shop.  I need a few pointers and suggestions.  I have very limited resources and internet experience.  First:  The banner and profile seem to require exact pixilated photos.  Is this true and is there a way around it without a camera that will pixilate.  I've tried it on my computer an it is proving extremely difficult to get it right.
Second:  Does google search by title, key words or both?
Third:  My previous experience is with physical shows,  I could use some specific suggestions for promotion.

I  worked for Houston public library  for  a while..  I  left to  work for a school district.  I  needed choice of schools for  my  son.   The  district  where  I  worked had a hard  time finding  subs  for their  library  personnel.  That  might interest you.  As  a  sub  you can work  when and where  you please.  If  you  don't  need   the benefit package  it might be  something   you'll  want  to  check out.

I have a few shows this summer - but what I am really excited about is that I have to go to Washington DC!  My novel, ALTITUDE, won a national book award!  So Paul and I are going on a road trip to the awards ceremony!
