Trying New Marketing Techniques

I have a very small budget for marketing my etsy store, so I spend time each week trying to find new and inexpensive ways to be seen by new people.

My latest project has been to enter a contest sponsored by Craft Magazine and The Crafty Chica to glitter and embellish a beach tote.  The contest runs until July 24th., so there is still time to enter.  See the info and official rules here and check out the Flickr pool to see the other entries.

I had a great time designing and embellishing my tote and I think that a few new people have now seen my work and there is always the possibility that I might win a prize :)chica bag collageThis has been a fun way to showcase the type of work I can do and to try something a little different.  My favorite part of this project are the stenciled stars on the lining (I have a mini tutorial for making freezer paper stencils here if you would like to give it a try).

I also have to share my favorite marketing tip of the week from Pam Hawk who tells us how to put our etsy shops in out pockets for about $11.00 here.

Please leave us a comment for your best inexpensive marketing idea, I’m always looking for new ideas!

You need to sell those bags!! I'd snatch one up in a heartbeat. Especially if it was customizable!
