    Hi all,


    so I'm running a (legit) shop and looking to get more exposure which seems to be difficult. Not looking for much of a shortcut, just looking to get more people to view my shop which will hopefully lead to more admirers. here are some thing I've been thinking may work.


    -Following lots of users
    -Favoriting lots of other sellers items
    ---> if worth it, maybe find a bot that could work these functions
    - Rank higher in Google product listing and Google Images (**EDIT: maybe ping all listing??)


    Cant really think of much else tbh... Seems like lots of the successful shops have gone somewhat viral to a sense.


    If anyone can recommend a good thread, ebook/guide, bot, or confirm one of the strategies i have above as a success or failure that would be great. Hoping to get a good discussion going on this thread about whats works and what doesn't

    I got customers/visitors from just submitting my shop into Google/bing and following and favoriting at least 300 shops.

    Were you able to do that by downloading your data feed from Etsy and submitting it via your google merchant account? I hired someone to do the product listing for my Etsy shop and it turned into a mission impossible, she claimed Etsy needs to grant access to my merchant account ID and Etsy said they have no clue what she's asking for so I had to terminate the order.

    How did you do yours?

    Getting shop favorites is really what helped me get the most sales. Not just the favorites on the listing, but the actual shop favorites. I'm at 161 shop favorites and I'm now getting daily sales. I'm going for 300 as the other poster stated. If you look at other successful shops, you'll see most if not all of them have a high shop following. It took a lot of work to get the tiny 161 shop favorites. I'm in many promotion teams on etsy and I post my shop there daily.
