It’s better to give than receive! Right?
But how good does it feel when you excitedly rip open that wrapping paper ( im not patient enough to gently unwrap) to find something you love nestled in that paper!
Women have perfected the art of dropping hints. You know what i mean! Pointing out and complimenting particular items in shop windows, catalogues and on other people.
And just as women have perfected hinting, men have perfected the art of MISSING THE POINT COMPLETELY. Lets face it, often subtlety just doesnt work!
Thats why i love the Treasury feature on etsy. Treasury lists allow users to “curate” a list of items they like or are interested in. For a seller it is yet another tool to allow potential customers to your items whether it be via a customer clicking on your profile because they like your list or if you are lucky enough to have one of your items featured on someone elses list.
The real potential of this feature for buyers is an easily accessible and changeable wish list to share with loved ones (almost like a registry) before an important date or to keep to yourself for future reference.
Many of these wishlists can be based on a particular event, colour or even emotion. At this very moment Treasury lists based on Valentines day, romance, love, hearts and the colour red are trending world wide.
If you find that you have a knack for curating lists you might find that one of your lists is used by etsy on their homepage. It goes without saying the amount of traffic this could generate for your business if your treasury is listed or better yet your product is featured.
