ETSY 101: Forum Do’s and Dont’s for Good Karma

Blue and Pink Dangle Earrings


The forum on ETSY is a wonderful way to get to know other sellers, a great place to get information that can help you sale and get information to improve your shop, and a great way to get encouragement when you are feeling discouraged about your little store, but lately and more often I have been noticing a trend of forum posts about low views, no sales,  and calling out. Many of these threads seem to be more on the negative side then the positive. I think it’s wonderful to discuss things that are affecting your shop, but we always have to remember that there are buyers on the forums (many sellers buy too) and often time a discouraging and negative post could keep from someone clicking your avatar and seeing all the wonderful and pretty handmade and vintage you have inside.


Please Don’t:

* Call Out

* Gripe and Complain because others are successful and you are not

* Whine because you have no sales, no views

* Bring other members down

* Participate in hate threads


Please Do:

* Ask for Critiques to improve your views and sales

* Participate in the Thinking Positive Threads

* Compliment People in the Thread

* Start a Positive thread of your own


Positive people draw friends, customer, alliances, and most of all their shops get more love. I have been participating in positive threads this last month in the forums and I have noticed a 457% increase on Google Analytics from the previous 30 days which I personally think is Karma is saying “Thank you for keeping positive!”
