You may have noticed a couple of times recently that we’ve added a Pinterest “Pin-It” button to posts that have key images that we’ve created.

Then we discover the concept of sales funnels.

You probably know that posting high-quality content on your blog or website is one of the most effective ways to build your brand and increase traffic.
But, if you are like a lot of busy business owners, you may be thinking, “I can't find the time to sit down and write a blog post, much less keep it going. And is anyone even going to read this thing?”
With a few simple tricks, you can easily reap the benefits of consistent posting (both search engines and readers love it!)
This is an article for those of you who blog – and who want to make your blog successful! I actually posted this on the Etsy forums a while back, when my blog passed 1,000 followers/subscribers.
That was only a month or so ago, and the count has grown to over 1,200.

For The Business: You submit a short form containing the specifics of what you are looking to do, how many bloggers you need, etc. We review it to make sure you are decent folk and have the best intentions for all involved, and we schedule it for an email to our thousands of subscribers. If they fit your needs and are interested, they contact you with details about their blog, and you play nicely together.

When people realized that social media sites like Twitter and Facebook weren't just a fad, and started hopping on them to build their businesses, a few things went awry. That's right, I said it.

Here are the 5 social media mistakes you're probably making and, of course, what you can do about them.
Mistake 1. Not Taking Part
If you want your blog to help promote your craft business, or connect you to book deals and freelance design jobs, you need a blog that's consistently interesting and valuable.
