    Hi
    I use etsy for my beaded jewellery & I've been looking at showcase to get more views & hopefully sales, just wondering if anyone has every used the etsy showcase & wether it was worth the spend or not?
    Thanks

    I have at least 4 times, increased hits, but not sales. I am not bothering again to be honest

    I've never tried a showcase but I have found that judicious adding to my Circle has increased my sales. I go looking at things I like, then see who has Favourited their shop then I add them to my circle if they like the same kinds of things that I do or if they like the same kinds of things that I make. And all it costs is time.

    I have also started to make treasury lists. I am getting at 100% increase in likes, others featuring me in their treasuries and circles

    How do you go about the treasuries. Do you add your items, or items in your niche from other shops. I think treasuries are not meant for self promotion.
