I've always been a proud shopper of etsy. Anytime I needed some kind of gift, I headed straight for etsy. My sister and mom both have shops on etsy and I have many friends with shops on etsy.
BUT I have noticed an increase in shops opening and selling on Facebook. I don't know about you, but I LIVE on facebook. It's a slight addiction that I am told I need to work on. lol I follow a lotof different shops and love seeing their latest updates with new items and such. That is not possible with etsy. So I definetly think Facebook is a better way to promote and even make sales, don't you think?
In Facebook you can post tons of pictures, have sales or giveaways. Play games to promote your shop... AND you don't have to pay any fees. You can also chit chat with lots of friends and stay updated on their latest items as well...
On etsy, you upload your item, pay a fee and that's about it. There are no for chat rooms, where we made several friends...
So my question for you, as a shop owner, do you prefer to sell on etsy or on facebook?
And as a shopper, do you prefer to shop on etsy or facebook?
I wann hear from you!
