Etsy’s Guide to Facebook

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

At any given moment, hundreds of millions of people are logging onto Facebook and browsing their News Feeds. With a Facebook Page, you can tap into that captive audience and make it easier for people to find and spread the word about your shop. The key with Facebook (and all social media) is that it is less about explicitly trying to promote things, and more about forging connections, sharing interesting tid-bits, and having fun!

If you don’t have a Facebook Page yet, but would like one,  here’s a handy tutorial on getting started. Don’t forget to connect your Etsy shop to your Facebook and Twitter accounts, too!

Content

So now that you have a Facebook Page, what do you say? You might be tempted to post every new listing to Facebook but that’s not going to win you any sales or fans.

Getting to know you: I like learning about an artist as a person. I am interested in seeing new work and hearing about events such as sales, shows, and blog posts. What I don’t like is spam. New listings one after another clutter my feed. — Cindy Steiler from  MarysGranddaughter

Spam I am (not): If all I get in my stream are advertisements for your product, I hide you. If, on the other hand, you inform and entertain me I’ll keep you in my stream and visit your page now and then. — Vicky Bell from  FreshUrbanVintage

So while the occasional listing is necessary, our community has suggestions on ways to keep your Facebook Page fresh, engaging, and relevant:

Working on it: Sharing work-in-progress with fans seems to work out very well. This allows your fans to see your creative process. Once a piece is completed I then blog about it, linking to that post from Facebook and list it for sale on Etsy. — Jessica Doyle

Be an inspiration: Every couple weeks I write an ‘article’ on something that inspires me, ‘jewels in history’ or something like that. They aren’t completely random. They all have something to do with what I make. — velvetotterhound

Personal effects: My most popular posts on my shop’s Facebook Page are always the ones about my cats or my family. I think it’s good to include a personal touch on your Page (without over-sharing), and not just promote your business in every post. — oldworldprimitives

Share the knowledge: Since I sell camera straps I try to post interesting articles and such about photography. I keep my fans engaged by asking them questions about photography, since most of my fans are professional photographers. — RhyahPapaya

The human touch: Most importantly, my fans like to see that I’m a human being. It’s like any other conversation — they like it when I ask about them, and when I do talk about myself, it’s best to talk about things that they can relate to whether it regards to something that I like to do, or what my future might hold. They also like it when I post pictures of my studio, or sneak peeks of what’s to come. Adding a little mystery always gets the fan’s interest! — Mary Recchia from megashark

Frequency

Experiment and find what frequency of posting works for your content, audience, and voice.

Save it for later: Sometimes I have a ton of stuff I want to post about. What I end up doing is writing ideas for posts down as they occur to me and then space them out over a period of time. I really don’t like to post more than 3-4 times per week. — Angela from ShopSomethingBlue

Keep it consistent: A lot of people are saying “don’t over-post,” which I agree with, but I’ve also found that it’s very important to be a regular and consistent poster. The more consistent I am, the more Likes I get. I suppose it makes me appear serious and reliable as a business owner. — Mary Recchia from megashark

Connect

Social media isn’t a one-way channel. You can make your Page more effective by focusing on connecting, rather than broadcasting.

Ask for feedback: Make the effort to include your customers in your design process. They are, after all, the ones who will or won’t buy from you. Listen to them and ask open-ended questions — and stay away from the yes or no, like-this-if-you-agree kind. — PhanieMarie

The name game: I keep it personal by using their name in the reply, so fans know I’m a real person capable of making human connections. — Mary from FrayedFuzzies

Be responsive: When someone asks a question or has feedback, definitely respond to it in a timely manner. It will make your shop even more approachable to potential customers. — inediblejewelry

Niceness counts: Definitely be nice to people and get to know your followers. If they like you, they will look at your stuff. If they look at your stuff, they are more apt to buy. So always be super kind (genuine, but kind) to all followers. I had one girl who really likes to message me and tell me what is wrong with each inidividual painting (“I don’t like your style in that one…” “The background is too dark…” “I don’t even get that — what are you trying to get at?”), and it makes me want to scream. But, I accept her views and always reply carefully and kindly. As a result, despite the constant criticism, she has bought a decent amount of my work! So you never know! — Loki Ryeland from PaintingsbyLoki

Build relationships: Interaction with others is a wonderful source of inspiration and drive. That is the goal of my Facebook Page, not sales (not directly anyway). Through building relationships with your followers you will gain sales, emotion-based sales (those are the ones that turn into word of mouth advertising). — Rebecca from Athenianaire

Gaining an Audience

How do you connect with potential fans? Here are top tips from sellers:

Automate it: In your auto-response to your buyers, put a blurb about liking your shop on Facebook to be the first to hear about promotions. — GeekGirlVintage

Invitation enclosed: For getting “quality” fans, and not just playing the “Like my page and I’ll like yours” game, when I send a thank-you after an item has shipped, I include an invitation for them to join my Page and sign up for my newsletter. — Mary from FrayedFuzzies

A little help from your friends: To those with just one or two likes, make sure to check the right-hand column of your Page where you’ll see an “invite friends” link. That will send an invitation to your page to your whole friends list on Facebook. It will get you a nice jump start. — maryannfarley

Climb the networking ladder: Networking ladders (such as The Craft Show, and Addicted to Networking on Facebook) are a great way for those who start at ground zero. It may not bring you ‘true’ fans, but when you have nowhere to start, it gets your product out there fast. — Crystal from WhimsicalMai

Slow and steady: Accumulate true fans little by little. Having 2,000 fans that are not interested in what you have to say isn’t as effective as having 200 who love hearing from you. — Cordelia J. Smith from  sweetpetula

List it: And use your lists! Different lists should be marketed to differently. Don’t spam your family! — Vicky Bell from FreshUrbanVintage

Promotions

The occasional promotion can be a great way to reward your fans and drive traffic to your shop. Here are some ideas:

Members only: Give your fans exclusive perks. We occasionally will throw out a % off coupon code, or a free shipping code on our page only for our Facebook fans. — SerenityInChains

Bring ’em over: When I first started my Facebook Page, I went to my LinkedIn account and invited everyone over, not just to “like” the page, but to enter my first contest giveaway! It really worked in those early days in gaining likes. — maryannfarley

Seller beware: Giveaways (hosted by popular blogs or Facebook Pages) increase “likes” very quickly but I have noticed those are very often not quality likes. — PBlossomBoutique

Your Page Look

Here are some ideas for making your Page look enticing to your fans:

Cream at the top: I always make sure my best items/images are in the top 5 thumbnails on the Page. You can easily tick the little ‘X’ in the corner and make your recent uploads vanish. — missbelluk

Create your own world: To get fans to like my Page, I created a landing page that gives my fans an idea of what my page has to offer, such as coupon codes, sneak peeks and giveaways. Once they like, they’re taken to a welcome page with an ongoing coupon code for fans only. I also created a custom profile picture that is much taller than a standard photo and acts more like a banner with information than just an avatar. — RhyahPapaya

Safe place to land: Make a Facebook landing page that non-fans will automatically be directed to that literally tells them to “like” your page, and why (mine says “Click ‘like’ above to keep informed about shop news, updates, and sales”). Google “Facebook landing page” for instructions on how to do so. Made a huge difference for me! — Julie Morris from BuffaloLucy

And finally, make time for making things. The best piece of advice:

Keep a balance: Don’t sit on Facebook all day. — LonesomeRoadStudio

    I so needed this right now, thank you. I have both a personal and business Facebook page and I'm Twitter as well. I rarely update my personal page, and have a hard time with what to say on the business page. As an introvert by nature, I spend most of my time on Twitter, where I can connect with my 'friends/followers/customers' and build relationships in a non-committal sort of way. I recently added a landing page to my Facebook wall & have seen a steady influx of likes, which is great. Now I just have to figure out how to keep them engaged. Lastly, I moved pages - any advice on how to get the 400+ fans I have on the old page over to the NEW one? xo, MJ

    This was most certainly a timely and helpful article for me. I've only recently been working with a Facebook page for my Etsy shop and although I've been able to increase the number of likes somewhat, I've increasingly felt something wrong with my page. Sort of like I know where I want to go, but feel I'm heading there in the wrong direction. This has helped tremendously in showing me ways to get on the right track. Look forward to more topics and conversations such as this. Thanks!

    Awesome article, it's things I've seen other successful businesses do, but never thought to do this, as I felt it impersonal. However I realize that these exact points such as a 'be responsive' and the store using my name, 'Build relationships' & regular updates, not being too frequent, has kept me peeking into their shops regularly & eventually purchasing, not only online but at their physical stores as well...

    The only thing I would add is this. While promoting your business and making Facebook friends using all this wonderful advice, I believe it's important to keep in mind that we don't always know who's watching what we post to social networks, so it is probably a good idea to protect our personal identity and information to a reasonable extent. You can still be a friendly person and an effective representative of your products without letting everyone in the world know exactly where you live, sharing too many details of your children's lives, etc. Let's remember to be careful out there ... ;)

    One more tip, that is really very useful, is to register a username for your FB page. In that way you have a short URL that is very easy for your fans to remember and also very "tidy" to use it on your business cards or your promotions. You can do that by going to your page ->edit page ->basic information!!! Oh!! And one more thing!!! If you are going to use a landing page, make sure that you will make it your default landing page (otherwise has no meaning to use one since none will probably see it)!!! You can do that in edit page-> manage permissions!!! Hope that 'll help :-)

    My Facebook fan page tip: Tag each picture you post with your fan page name and your own name. I've done this with every image to associate my work with me in an informal copyright sort of mindset. As an an unintended consequence, besides appearing in my fans' newsfeed, each photo shows up on my personal FB profile...where all of my friends (official fan page "likers" or no) can see my daily updates, too.

    Thanks for the awesome advice! I really need to start posting on my Facebook page, but was never really sure what to post. I wasn't really sure whether to post personal info about myself but I can see where that would help. I have a question though - does my post only go to the people that "like" my business page or does it also go to the people on my personal Facebook page and others too? Thanks!

    Great article! I am very active on FB and have a core of followers. I noticed it's very helpful to share on my page information given by businesses I like and linking to them -> they get to know my page if they don't already do. Supporting each other is key here. The next step for me is to get a "landing page" real soon.

    I agree with the importance of posting relevant information to help keep fans engaged. For example I'll post interesting links I've found or write a short essay that pertains to something I've been working on. It certainly takes time away from creating but the benefits are more than worth it. Most of my new customers all have come from facebook.

    I am active on fb and just getting going on Etsy. Make sure to establish a buisiness page and not just give a business name to a personal page. That way people don't have to request a friendship and can just like your page to be your fan. Plus there is a limit to how many people can be your friend but no limits on fans of business pages. Thanks for the tips about a landing page; I didn't know about that!

    Don't forget that the way it works is that if anyone likes one of your statuses or something then your business will appear on their wall to their friends. That means that even a non genuine fan could potentially bring in 10 or so more genuine ones. So encourage your fans to comment.

    The only reason I joined facebook was to connect with a broader fan base. It's fun to let the people you know (& the ones you don't know yet) keep up with what you're doing without giving them an update every time you go the grocery store. Since it's a clear passion it makes sense to share inspiration or things that you find to be beautiful. From time to time I'll simply snap a photo of something that I just brought home from the beach - no idea what to do with it yet - I just want to share the beauty! https://www.facebook.com/profile.php?id=100001064674749&ref=tn_tnmn#!/pages/Vixen-Design-Studio-by-Victoria-Kerkela/126249350722893

    Sharron M from TheSpikedOlive says:

    I opened a Facebook page years ago but didn't bring it to the "live" stage. I have now published it been trying to post something at least once a week now to coincide with opening an Etsy store. FB has changed so much in the last few years that I am still trying to navigate through it but so far so good. I haven't has any promotions yet as I am still posting new items but I have used the find friends feature and used the Google one to search for invites on Etsy and surprisingly quite a few people found me. I can't seem to use Find Friends on Etsy to search through Facebook though, I think it's because my Spiked Olive facebook page is connected with my personal page and it's confused. I would really like to separate them but don't know how. Otherwise enjoying Etsy and the helpful blogs and emails I have received so far. :)

    Michelle Hatcher from TheVintageGirlie says:

    There are some excellent tips - my favourite is when I see a page I like, I write a comment and say that I have liked it - I will also make a point saying what I like about their page - it shows you have taken time and made the comment personal - they are more likely to come back and like your page too! They then write a comment, and you reply - there a relationship is built.... :)

    This is great advise and information. I have been slowly increasing my likes on facebook but I don't get a lot of interaction. I have been trying to figure out what the best things would be to include on my facebook. I try not to add to many items to my page as I have noticed I get more clicks when I talk about something interesting or personal. So I agree with everything you have said here. I just needed to hear it from someone else. Thanks for all your work here and helping us in other social medias.
