I have been trying to get my head around social media....again... but to be honest, Blogging, Facebook and Twitter are about all I can manage. There are various places like Hootsuite and Tweetdeck that tie them all together and supposedly make it more streamlined but to be honest my hard drive is full and if you add assorted foums into this heady mix..."she canna take any more captain, she's gonna blow!" yes indeedy! In an attempt to promote my Etsy shop I have been trawling the Etsy forums reading post after post of advice and really, I'm none the wiser. Actually that's not exactly true I have gleaned two pieces of useful advice...1. Use fantastic photographs2. Don't give up!Hours and hours of reading and this is what I have to show for it, I am completely overwhelmed!Obviously I have now spent so many hours reading that I haven't done anything else for days, I have not made beads, photographed beads, made jewellery, photographed jewellery etc. etc.So here is the thing, do you think I should be doing my bead thing and hope that my work sells itself or should I "not give up", invest more time and see if I can up the ante?Answers on a postcard please :DNew Special up on my website if you would like to buy them click here.
