Were you part of the Flickr frenzy on Thursday? Wow! I cannot believe how many new contacts I got there in one day! Over 40! There were 3 different threads talking about Flickr in the Etsy Forums on that day and there were a lot of people checking it out! When someone says, "Flickr...Run Don't Walk" and talks about getting 2 sales because of it, many people will run!
It was a lot of fun though! I have to admit that I found quite a few shops that were new to me! Cute, fun, and beautiful items I found! In fact, there is one seller that benefited adding me as a contact: L & B Accessories ( http://lbaccessories.etsy.com/ ) I decided that I liked her stuff so much after seeing them on Flickr, that I went to her shop and gave her a couple of sales!
So, check your Flickr account! I cannot say with certainty that it has helped my shop (although, I did make a sale on Thursday night too...who knows?!) but it might help yours! And if you buy anything from a seller because of their Flickr account- let them know that is where you saw them!
And, of course, check our my Flickr account...the link is on the sidebar!
