Last night my newly listed "life" rings made it to the front page of Etsy. It was unbelievable the amount of traffic to my store that one hour of front page glory generated.
For the Etsians interested in stats :)
Visits to my store is usually between 100 and 150 per day. On the day that the rings were on the front page, my store had 629 visits.
I had only just listed the rings the day before and they had about 20 views and 1 heart. After 1 hour on the front page, they had 754 views and 54 hearts!
During the hour I received 44 new shop hearts.
I had no sales during the hour but I'm now working on three custom orders that were requested immediately after the rings were on the front page.
This is the second time in 2 years that one of my items has made it to the front page, I wish it would happen more often!
