Congrats, lizstaley! If you don't mind me asking, what did you do to increase your hearts & sales? For me, promoting and adding things to my shop doesn't really seem to influence my sales one way or the other. Sometimes, I'll have a spurt of sales, and other times, nothing.
I honestly haven't been able to peg it down to any one things. I have a MySpace account for my shop, have my shop in my e-mail signature and my signature on GaiaOnline.com, I'm a member of a street team that's gotten to 100 members in a really short time, I post on the forums and I'm in the chat rooms a lot, I go around shopping, buy from other sellers, post my pictures on Flickr and DeviantArt, add new stuff and/or renew old things as often as I can... Etsy is basically my full-time job so I sometimes devote every waking moment to it- guess it's finally paying off!
