If you live in Oregon and have an Etsy Shop and a blog, let’s chat about how to support one another and cross-promote at the same time!
I was thinking about a ‘marketing on a shoe string’ strategy today and how to get some local press for Hide A Heart. It struck me that one of the most obvious ways would be to connect with other Etsy Shop owners living in Oregon!
I once did an Etsy search to connect with shop owners living in my immediate neighborhood and sent an email to a couple I discovered, but everyone is so busy, we never quite pulled off meeting one another over coffee.
I think a ‘virtual’ connection would be easier to accomplish and I’m counting on my fellow Oregon Etsyians to feel similarly. I just replaced all the ‘cyber Monday’ and ‘black Friday’ tags with Portland Oregon and Etsy searched other Portland Oregon shops to find there are a fair number of us!
Here’s my ‘marketing on a shoestring’ strategy proposal:
- I will make a page titled Oregon Etsyians on both Hide A Heart blogs
- add links to Oregon Etsy Shops and Blogs
- include the link to that page in the Hide A Heart Etsy Shop
If you live in Oregon and have an Etsy Shop and a blog, leave your shop and blog address below in the comment section and that will serve as TWO links to your shops and blogs!
If this new ‘shoestring’ strategy is successful, I think there’s a good chance I can pull together an even larger project TBA later!
Looking forward to connecting with all my fellow Oregon Etsyian Shops!
