It has taken me 4 years to test the waters of Art Fire. With a positive increase in sales in my Etsy shop and a dismal performance on Art Fire for 2012, it all adds up to putting my efforts where the sales are. So as of January 26, 2013 my presence on Art Fire will downgrad to 'patron'.
Yes, it is sad to let my little shop go there. The Art Fire staff are good people, always striving to make the site better and more attractive. Four years is a long time to see enough sales to warrant the monthly fee.
It's not like I haven't tried in my promotions and encouragement to people to shop there. Maybe it's the Amazon payment required at check out, but they recently added Paypal last year and that didn't help either.
So I will be putting all my efforts into my Etsy shop and begin to look for another venue to rest my sign board. If anyone reading this blog has any recommendations, I'd appreciate hearing about them.
Right now if you want to see what I have left in my Art Fire Shop head on over there and take a peek. I am offering a 25% OFF discount on all my earrings. Soon they will appear in my Etsy Shop at regular pricing. So now is a good time to take advantage of buying gifts for yourself or future birthdays of friends and family.
