Etsy Growth Bot by Viralwoot – Best Free Etsy Marketing Tool

Automate Etsy Marketing – Grow Etsy Sales while you are sleeping

Today, we are excited to launch an Etsy marketing automation tool for one of our favorite communities i.e. Etsy Sellers. Out of 125K users on Viralwoot, close to 3% users are running a shop on Etsy.

So, we worked with over 500 Etsy sellers to understand the challenges they face in growing their Etsy sales. A majority of Etsy sellers rely on manual work (be it creating ads, posting on social networks, finding useful tags etc) instead of using tools/softwares or services  because of two main reasons:

  1. These automation tools or services are expensive
  2. They are not much techsavy so using any new tool or software takes time & efforts to learn

But, they must realize that to beat their competition & increase their share in $3 billion annual sales on Etsy, they will have to use technology to get more done in less time. Speed & efficient resource utilization are two most important factors that separate successful Etsy seller from just another average Etsy seller. Hence, we strongly believe that each & every Etsy seller should have access to a powerful, easy to use yet economical (if not free) Etsy marketing tool to not only boost his/her sales or brand but also, grow Etsy buyer base as a whole.

Why should I automate Etsy marketing?

We are good at social media marketing and analytics, so started researching about how Etsy sellers are currently handling social media marketing. About 89% Etsy sellers are currently managing their Facebook, Twitter, Instagram and Pinterest pages themselves or they hire an intern/freelancer to do the same. Only 11% Etsy sellers use one or more softwares to accelerate their sales growth or optimize their listings.

Hence, we built Growth Bot For Etsy Sellers to help Etsy sellers with automating social media posting for his/her products on 4 social media networks – Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and Instagram.

How Etsy Growth Bot works?

Once you create your free account, we fetch your Etsy products. Then, you connect your social media networks where you want to promote your products (Pinterest, Twitter, Facebook and Instagram).

Now, you can set the rules for bot like how many posts per day for different social networks, which Pinterest board to post on and so on. And, that’s it. The growth bot will start working for you day & night.

Several companies want affiliates that promote their goods on a promotional basis. Use your boards to promote their products using the affiliate links. Just make sure that you don’t spam because Pinterest takes action against spammers.

Use Search Engine Optimization (SEO) Strategies

You need to use SEO strategies so that people can find your boards easily with the help of major search engines like Google. Write a good description in your ‘About’ section and use keywords and hashtags that you think the searchers will use. You can use the same strategies on your pins too as you can add a 100 word description to them.

If you want to increase the number of followers, then you can create contests because eventually it will help you in making money. By creating contests, you are encouraging people to think and talk about your products.
