I did not know that about the CEO - good! I'm happy to hear that's fixed. It seemed pretty unfriendly there for awhile. I thought it might have been due in part to the election craziness, etc.
I am just in the process of getting my etsy shop going again after being pretty idle for a couple years, and already made a couple sales (on prints). I think I'm going to open another etsy shop just for my originals. The idea being to post them 1st on DPW then putting them in etsy. I just didn't want to get my prints and originals mixed up. Do you think that's a good idea?
And yes, I do have instagram too (just 350 followers). I see where it's kind of just being 'out there' and using these venues to direct them to a sales site. The motto might be 'every little bit helps'. Nothing gangbusters perhaps, but just sticking with it. (I do pinterest also, but none of them as enthusiastically as I should....yet)
BTW, I want to emphasize that I think DPW is a really good venue. I see where looks at my Etsy shop have increased since I started up there again. I do recommend DPW, but just don't get discouraged if there aren't sales. I think it's good exposure. Thanks for the nice visit.
