Many people ask me how they can share their social media accounts with their potential customers on Etsy.
Etsy has developed a way for people browsing in your shop to easily start following you on social media. This is great news as it helps people who have an interest in your items keep up with your new creations.
In case you don’t already have your social media accounts linked to your Etsy shop, here are the steps to link your Twitter account and your Facebook Fan page to your Etsy shop:
- Go into your shop and look at the left hand side. Underneath the “shop settings” section you will see a clickable link that says “Info & Appearance”. Click that link.
- About halfway down the page you will see where you can add your Twitter and Facebook links to your Etsy page. It looks like this:
- Click “connect with Facebook” to add your Facebook information. After you have done this a “like” button will appear on your shop homepage for customers to click on to start engaging with you outside of Etsy.
- Click “connect with Twitter” to add your Twitter account to your page. After you have done this a “follow” button will appear on your shop homepage for customers to click on to start following your Tweets.
If you have other social media links you would like to share with your potential customers like one to your Pinterest or Google+ page, you can add them to your shop announcement or your Etsy “about” page.
That’s all there is to it!
