According to an Inc. Magazine article about Etsy, (in April of 2011), the average Etsy seller makes just $785 per year. With those revenue numbers – imagine how important it is to get as much traffic to your Etsy Store & Listing as you can, critical, right?!
According to RJMetrics and others Pinterest drives more traffic to Etsy than almost any other site. And now…there is a new function in Pinterest that is going to take it to the next level for Etsy sellers.
Attribution! [Read The Technical Stuff Here]
Bottomline – Pinterest is now doing a great job of pulling the user level content off of sites so that rather than just having the pin say, “Pinned Via Etsy” it now shows the individual Etsy user. That gives a huge new level of exposure to the Etsy sellers. Score!
So if you’re – beanieVille – and you’re trying to move some hats – you can look to Pinterest now more than ever. And the cool part (of course) is that you don’t have to do the pinning – or do anything to set up the Attribution. Your fans can handle that – and your attribution information is built in …
And it cannot be changed or deleted when the pin is repinned. Sweet!
Bottomline – Pinterest’s new Attribution function is super friendly to small biz sellers.
Now go sell something!
