Congratulations to our team member FrostedCrossbones for an Etsy Finds feature - Macaroni n' Cheese Soap (April Fool's Day)!
Q: How did you find out you were featured in Etsy Finds?
A: I actually had no idea that I was featured until I entered the Etsy chat room and started receiving congratulations.
Q: Had you heard of Etsy Finds before you were featured?
A: No, frankly I was trying to figure out what people were talking about.
Q: How do you feel about the item Etsy chose to be featured?
A: I thought it was an interesting choice since it's one of my newer, more offbeat items.
Q: How has being featured changed changed your shop traffic?
A: I've gotten quite a bit more traffic. I've actually been featured on the front page a few times and enjoyed a great deal of traffic but I feel that being featured in Etsy Finds has given people a chance to spread the publicity instead of it being a quick burst.
Q: Why do you think Etsy chose your product to be a part of their finds?
A:I think the photography probably helps. I've also come to find that it really doesn't matter if you use your iPhone or a DSLR to take the picture. What matters is the angle and background. The less quality your camera is, the closer you need to be and more simple your background needs to be. This helps focus the photo without leaving it up to the camera itself.
