Etsy Treasuries lead to sales!

Interestingly enough...yesterday's post "Treasured Moments" prompted a discussion on the Etsy forum threads about the number of treasuries that have been created recently because of the new "Treasury West" that allows an infinite number of treasuries to be created. The gist of the discussion is whether being in a treasury REALLY leads to sales. Well, the answer is YES! If you put together a great treasury with items that have great photos, it has a chance of being chosen for the FRONT PAGE of Etsy...and BAM!...lead to sales. That's just what happend to me yesterday. Our "Mommy & Me Lambs" print was included in this "Farm Chic" treasury, made it to the front page today, and we sold that print, and 2 more from the same collection...just like that! So, continue to take great photos of your listings, tag them accordingly, and "treasure" those treasuries...you never know when they will get to the front page of Etsy and lead to sales!
