So My esty shop hasnt been getting any kind of business really it truly sucks!
I've posted new items and everything so I was thinking of making a facebook to promote my etsy shop.
But I wanted to know if its worth it?
Does it help you get more business?

Create a facebook account using your business name, and then create a Facebook Page using that account. It makes for GREAT advertising because then anyone who 'likes' the facebook page is advertising it to their entire friends list.

There is also a very good advertising system that works with any budget. You can promote your page in those little side ads. I've used it once to test it out and my views skyrocketed.

I've found it's an okay tool to have in your repertoire as friends and family can shoot it around for you as well.
Best thing I've found is Etsy its self, the teams and forums. Be apart of them, help people out when they ask or in turn ask your self and get out there. Also as Shelby says, Tumblr and a blog are seriously good things to have too! x

Also, if you have an etsy, you should use google analytics to see where your traffic comes from. It's really valuable.

Sorry I got back to you so late! I hope you're liking it so far. I've found it seriously helps me get more sales, because immediately after making one, I had a person buy from me that day! It was great.

It's great with the reblogging etc because if enough people like your posts/reblog them, it's serious coverage. :]

Hope it works out for you!

That's a shame! I hope it goes better for you. It definitely gets you out there though, because of all the reposting. I had a bunch of people repost my stuff when the pictures look nice. Yours is great. It's nice because you can also heart other posts and get people to possibly look at you that way too.
Good luck, sincerely!
