Being on ETSY’s front page is HUGE, and could potentially net many sales to your shop the day you are seen on the front page and in the days and weeks to follow, and the questions everyone is always asking is “How do I get on ETSY’s Front Page?” There is no guarantee that you will make it to the front page, but there are ways to increase your chances for that exciting exposure moment! So what can you do to increase your chances on getting on the front page? By making treasury worthy products.
* MERCHANDISING DESK *
This is huge. The merchandising desk article that comes out and every month is written by ETSY focused on the hot trends that are coming. A lot of the treasuries and products they choose for the front page are keywords that can be found in this article. The merchandising article can be found here: http://www.etsy.com/storque/search/tags/from-etsys-merchandising-desk/
* TAGGING FOR SUCCESS *
When sellers make treasuries, and admins choose products and treasuries for the front page they are looking for keywords. If your tagging is lacking then there is a good chance people are first not seeing your items, second your chances of getting into a treasury is smaller. This is my all-time favorite tagging article made by ETSY’s treasury team. I highly recommend it: http://etsytreasuryteam.blogspot.com/2009/03/tagging-for-maximum-exposure-in-etsy.html
* TAKE GOOD PICTURES *
I can’t say this enough, if your picture doesn’t pop out chances are it won’t go into a treasury. There are many articles on ETSY and on the internet on how to improve your pictures. The more striking, the higher your chance of being put into a treasury.
Have fun, and just know it’s more than possible to get on the front page you just have to make your products ready for the front page!
