Etsy Shop Makeover Challenge Part 3
Alright, so, by this time you should be 10% up to speed on my Etsy Shop Makeover Challenge! You've studied popular Treasuries. You've reworked 10 of your listings. And your ready for the next step. The next step is a simple one. I would like you to comment on 25 or more active Treasuries.
Simple enough, right? Here, let me complicate it just a little for you. I want you to only comment on Treasuries that match the following criteria:
1. You are NOT featured in the Treasury
2. Your comment MUST be on the first page of the Treasury
3. Your comment MUST be relevant to the Treasury (No generic comment like "love it")
4. You MUST comment on one Front Page Treasury
Okay, of that list, the hardest one will more than likely be commenting on a Front Page Treasury, on the first page of comments with a meaningful comment. You have to time yourself to get it in there. Meaning, you may have to camp next to your computer at the turn of the hour. By 3 minutes after the hour Front Page Treasuries usually are already up to 2 or 3 pages of comments.
Step 5 which I did not mention above is an important step as well. Follow the curator and favorite their shop. Many people who have their Treasury picked for the Front Page get picked again and again! This is not so much favoritism by Etsy as it is people who seem to have a pulse on the Etsy Trends Heartbeat!
This part of the challenge is one that I would like you to repeat each day for a couple of weeks. Actually, it would be great if you could just do it every single day but I know how taxing that can be for you. So, just do it as often as you can. If you cannot hit 25 Treasuries aim for 5 to 10 a day.
Let me know if you have any questions or comments! See you all tomorrow!
