Tuesday Tip: give your ♥ away

A lot of etsians offer great products, yet their shops go unnoticed. This week I'm starting a several-week series of tuesday tips about ways to improve your etsy karma... These are ways I have found to get people into my shop. And the more people go through my shop, the more likely I am to make a sale!

Etsy has a feature where you can mark an item or seller as a 'favorite.' Doing so is referred to as 'hearting' because the icon for marking favorites is a little heart. ♥
The seller can see everyone who 'hearts' them, and most sellers will 'heart' you in return. Additionally, you can see anyone who 'hearts' you.
When you visit a shop, you can see everyone who has marked that shop as a favorite--so if you like the shop, perhaps you'll like some of the other shops of folks who like it too, you know?
When you mark an item as a favorite, it appears in your etsy-mini of favorites (mine are posted on the right sidebar a ways down) so if you post your mini on your blog, you're helping other etsians get a little more exposure...
So be liberal with your ♥s, mark things you like, even if you aren't interested in buying them yourself. Soon your favorites list will reflect your own personal style, and when someone with similar taste finds your list (or anyone on it), they will also find you!
