7 Tips on How to Sell on Etsy with Pinterest

Etsy seller and author, Charles Huff, offers tips from the craft business trenches on how selling on Etsy can be made simpler, and far more effective, with the power of Pinterest.


La Mesa, CA -- (SBWIRE) -- 01/13/2015 -- Selling on Etsy isn't just about sending out a few emails, or making your Etsy store nice and pretty. According to Charles Huff, author of "How to Sell on Etsy With Pinterest" one of the best ways to boost your craft bottom line is to share the product love on the fastest-growing social network in the world.

"Pinterest and Etsy go together like peanut butter and chocolate. Or glue guns and craft rooms," said Huff.

Unfortunately most Etsy sellers don't have a clear Pinterest marketing plan when venturing into the world of pinboards and repins. "People need to be told exactly what to do," said Huff. "And that includes visiting your Etsy store."

That's why Huff has collected 7 of the best Pinterest marketing tips on how selling on etsy can be made simpler, and more profitable, with a couple of well-placed pins into a dedicated new board, on Pinterest of course, to help Etsy sellers.

Huff's philosophy is central: "Make sure every pin has a function. And that your pinboards are easy to find."

And though sales won't skyrocket overnight - "Nothing in social media is overnight" - Huff does think Pinterest might be an even more important part of Etsy marketing than Facebook.

"Pins and pinboards are like little ATM machines you can plant around the Internet, all pointing back to your Etsy store."
