Etsy is running a design competition this year, so I’ve decided to enter. I am putting up my bouquet, since I think it is both the most ambitious project I’ve ever undertaken (coming in at over 200 hours and a pound and a half of silver) and the most unusual.
I don’t particularly expect to win anything, much like I don’t expect someone to actually drop to $1500+ for a silver bouquet, but I am hoping for some of that sweet sweet exposure that everyone is always talking about. Self promotion is … uncomfortable... for me, and learning to wrangle SEO and the ever changing requirements for ranking well on google, picking the right keywords for instagram. Ugh. Fingers crossed this will help get eyes on my store, since traffic breeds traffic.
I suppose this means I need to work on my product photos for all the rest of the listings, and at some point, I should probably learn how to properly write SEO, and maybe update my blog. All I want to do is make stuff. Someday, maybe, I’ll earn enough to pay someone else to do all this for me.
So, wish me luck on my quest to get more eyeballs on my art!
