New stuff and a coupon code!

Happy Tuesday AND Happy first day of Summer! To celebrate I have a 25% off coupon code. Use code TUESDAYTREAT25OFF in my shop and save some cash!

I also wanted to post some new designs here on my blog. Check them out:

As you can see, I made some fall/Halloween sets. I also added some Christmas sets as well. I decided to add them so that customers can stock up early and use them when the time comes.

I have also been really active in some giveaways lately. I have a free business card design up for grabs on The Shop Around the Block's facebook page. I have a free set available on Storkbite's Children's Boutique on facebook as well. Go check their pages out and have a look!

I also have a big announcement but that won't be coming until next week. Be sure to check back and find out what the big news will be!

I also wanted to share my write up I wrote for my absolute favorite team-The Homefront Team. We are made up of military spouses on Etsy and it is a fabulous place for all of us to go to work together and support each other.

A few ways to help promote your shop:

There are so many ways to promote your shop. My two favorite things to do when promoting my shop sets are doing giveaways and having great customer service.

Do you have a blog? I think having a blog is one of the single most important things that you as an Etsy shop owner can do. Just start out slow. I usually blog once a week and this is perfect for my readers to get a glimpse of any new shop sets I've created, coupon codes, or any other general announcement. Blogs are great for doing giveaways as well. Giving away items from your shop set is a really fun way to get buyers in your shop to have a look around. They can see what is in your shop and this usually will spark some interest and point your followers in the direction of your shop.

If you don't have a facebook page, I would recommend heading over there right now! Facebook is probably the single most effective way to get your news out to potential customers. You need to first build up your fan base and then the rest is a piece of cake. With facebook, you can announce sales, giveaways, coupon codes or just send out a friendly hello to your fans.

I will be writing more in the coming weeks but for now I am going to focus on the shop and getting more items in stock.

I will see all of you next week for the big announcement!
