Besides my Etsy shop, I also have a new on-line shop at Artfire.com. Artfire sponsored a Twitter networking event on Sunday, May 23, 2010 for its crafters and I took part in it. It was called the Handmade Parade and it was a blast! I met a lot of Artfire vendors and increased the traffic to my Artfire shop by over 500% during the event!
As I was browsing through the Artfire forums, I came across the invitation to Tweet to promote our shops on Twitter. It took me a minute to set up an account and join the Artfire thread. There are a lot of talented artisans at Artfire and I enjoyed looking at the items they posted and then re-tweeting. I hot listed a few items and also tagged a few suppliers. In all I tweeted 101 times. I have about 23 followers so far and hope to keep in contact with them.
I hope that this will be the beginning of many followers and customers for my online jewelry shop at Artfire. My Twitter tag is DesignsbyAudrey. The link to my Artfire shop is designedbyaudrey.artfire.com.
