I've seen some sellers posting pictures of their products in flickr.
I for one, do not frequent at Flickr, but I'm wondering if maybe it actually helps boost sales?

If you can link it to your other sites, it doesn't hurt to have outside forces linking to your site. It could be, though, that folks are just needing a place to post photos so they can post them elsewhere, like this forum, for example. I have a Photobucket account and I can put tags and such on them; I don't do it all the time because it's tedious, but it certainly doesn't hurt. But like any other site, if you want traffic you have to direct it there somehow.

I recently opened a shop and I use my flickr to post pictures in etsy groups on flickr. I think it could help.

As far as sales go, I'm not sure if it's helped me at all. But I have made some great contacts and found some pretty sweet sellers by looking through the groups (Etsy Supplies, Indie Designers, etc). I think it probably helps get your product out there, but it's unfortunate that we can't use our link in our description.

Hope this helps! =)

Not only for business, but thinking of using it for cub scouts too....

Thanks!
