FORUMS PROS per Etsy seller Littleputbooks:“1. Etsy users are genuinely helpful. You can ask advice, basic questions, look for honest and kind critiques and find camaraderie with others in your field. 2. Etsy sellers also shop on Etsy. There is a strong feeling of wanting to support one another and while begging for sales is not really the way to go being visible among a community of shoppers is a smart move. 3. Forum posters have their pulse on the industry. With so many designers in a small community you can get a real feel for what is people are looking for. Simply asking other sellers to give you their input on your shop (see the critiques section) is a great way to get an idea of what youre doing right and what needs improving on. 4. Etsy Admin is involved in the forums. While I still dont believe Admin tends towards favorites, being visible to the people who write the Etsy articles and choose the featured seller is a good idea. It never hurts if the powers that be know you exist."
