Using RebelMouse to Generate Traffic to Your Work

RebelMouse brings in the second largest amount of traffic to my Etsy, next to Twitter.

After setting up my RebelMouse, my Twitter feed and Pinterest, among others, automatically post to my RebelMouse page, along with an image of the work I'm sharing. RebelMouse then becomes a graphic "business card"--a quick snapshot of who you are and what you're about. Using #hashtags on twitter, whenever I post links to my Etsy, results in regular hits on my RebelMouse page and referrals to my Etsy--many more than just posting on twitter without any hashtags.

This is what it looks like once you have it set up:

FYI: I have "frozen" my Etsy link to the top of the page, where you see it. You can freeze a few posts that will always stay at the top, as your feed continues.

The RSS feature will allow you to add other pages, ones that offer syndication--including your website--if that's your main sales venue. Its usefulness is not restricted to Etsy.

Tips for Members

If you just want to spout off, it is best accomplished as a blog posting. If you want to get more guidance and ideas from other members, ask a question as a new discussion topic. In the upper right corner of the lists for both types of posting, you will find an "+Add " button. Clicking it will open an editor where you create your posting. 4/16/2014
