Here is an image of my fairly new shop, The Hairy Vetch, where I sell hair accessories. It's not connected to the social world yet and looks a little lonely.
Clicking on the Facebook icon under the shop banner brings me to the Info and Appearance page of my shop. From there I can select the Facebook page I want to connect to the shop and instantly the Facebook Like button appears on the page.
Once I click the Like button, Facebook registers that I am my first fan!
- Shoppers will see a Follow button for your Twitter account below the banner of your Etsy shop.
- You’ll be able to tweet about each new listing you add to your shop.
- Anyone who has Followed you through Etsy will see your updates in their Twitter Timeline.
Now I should start my conversation with my future fans. For some tips on how to have a meaningful and professional social media presence in your shop, check out Etsy's Guide to Facebook.
