Pinterest

http://pinterest.com/viki_banaszak/I recently joined Pinterest and am having a great time adding goodies I find to my picture gallery for all to see. I have been recieving a daily Artfire collection in my inbox and I am utilizing this to add beautiful new products and artists to my pins. I get to see alot of beautiful items that I may not have seen otherwise and I get to share the artwork of others and at the same time promote their stores and alot of times other pinners will add one of the products that I select to their pages. I did get a notice from Pinterest that someone didn't want their picture shared so they deleated it. That's ok by me if they don't want the free promotion of their product. Other than that one incident, I have had no complaints. I think it is a great way to get the word out there about Artfire and what awsome artists are there. There are so many advantages to being a seller on Artfire and I think it is by far better than ETSY and yet there is alot more promotion of ETSY. I don't pay for listing items like I did on ETSY and I don't pay a percentage of my sales to the bosses either. I have a Pro account so I do pay a small monthly fee, but I started out with a free account. That's right free! I opened my little store without having ever made an investment, not one penny at all. That is a great way to test the waters.
