So now that you’re approved by these Facebook groups, what’s next? Again, read the rules and follow them.

Some of these groups have “networking days” where you are allowed to post your Facebook page to get free likes, but in return, you may also have to “like” the other pages on the post thread as well. Sometimes they require a “like” back, sometimes they don’t.

The best part is, they allow you to post the projects you’re currently working on. From doing so, you will be able to get honest feedback and tips from your fellow artists. You can also get a lot of inspiration from the other works of members.

The benefits of joining groups include:

  1. Endless source of new tips and trick to get noticed and make sales
  2. Feel part of the arts and crafts community
  3. Share new listings and get visitors to your shop
  4. Request and received feedback and advice on your listings and shop setup
  5. Connect with other Etsians on your social media
  6. Share links to your other places online – such as pinterest, stumble and blog posts.
  7. Connect with Etsians in your local area
  8. Keep up to date with what’s going on within the Etsy community
  9. Market your Etsy shop and help promote other artists and crafters.

As you can see there are still a lot of Facebook groups you can join to that were not included in the list above.
