ArtFire vs Etsy

I was advised by a friend of mine to go to ArtFire - there is a monthly fee, but I was not
selling on Etsy, just posting my FB sales on there and giving them the % just to use the service
and show that I was actually producing and having sales, so just to post them and use that
credit card feature it was costing me about 9.00 a month. This will cost 12.00 a month - but I have noticed
that I'm getting more exposure and looks than I did over the past few months on Etsy, just in a few hours!
I'm hoping to increase sales, so that I can keep supplies on hand.

I finally got a bulldog request, it is going to be a real cute one. Three of them lined up looking for a chip.
Perhaps after I complete that portrait I'll get some more photos sent my way.

  1. Artfire admin is far more responsive to users, and they participate in forum conversations. Their phone number is answered by a real, live person. They respond to help requests right away.

    The community is much friendlier, too, and my views in just a few months on Artfire have well outpaced my views over the approximately two years I was on Etsy. Plus, for the $12/month, you get SO MANY tools!

    I have two Pro accounts. That's $24/month.

    Whatever you decide, good luck!
