Treasury Madness

Earlier this week while I was reading the Etsy forums I came across a thread about spamming shops that you feature in your treasury. There was a huge response to this thread and it grew by pages in hours and has since been closed. I am trying to be more active in the forums, virtual labs and chats on Etsy in hopes of networking my way into some sales.
As a whole I am very shy person and find it really hard to put myself out there, so when I do make comments they are usually short sweet and to the point.
All it took was one post in one thread. The result was being featured in three treasuries in two days so far. I had only been in two treasuries since I opened my shop on September 1, 2010. I also curated my very first treasury this week as well.
I am going to have to buck it up and step out of my comfort zone and be more social if I want to be successful in this dream.
Have a great weekend.

The first treasury I was featured in after posting has had over 2000 views so far. Great exposure for my shop.

  1. Wow 2000+ views. Did it make it onto the Front Page? I hear you about putting yourself out there. I've got a few threads I follow regularly the others can seem like a lot of drama sometimes. Great job on the treasuries.
