I added Google Analytics to my Etsy shop last month, and I am amazed at the number of views and the places from which they come. If any of you have Etsy shops, you should really take a look at this free marketing tool. It only takes a few minutes to sign up, and provides tons of interesting information to help you market your artwork.
I just checked, and from April 5 to May 5, I have had 2,219 views from every state in the U.S. except Rhode Island, and from 42 countries and territories: The United States, Canada (I am very big in Canada, Hee Hee), Australia, United Kingdom, Spain, Germany, France, Isreal, Russia, Netherlands, Italy, Portugal, Romania, Turkey, Lithuania, Poland, Finland, Austria, Cyprus, Sweden, Slovenia, Japan, New Zealand, Bermuda, Gabon, Jordan, Bulgaria, Hong Kong, Ukraine, Panama, Jamaica, United Arab Emirates, Czech Republic, Taiwan, Hungary, Malaysia, Belgium, Puerto Rico, Brazil, Latvia, Singapore, and the Philippines.
That is so cool! I am still amazed that you can pick up a phone and call someone on the other side of the world with no wires between you! To see that someone from Gabon actually window-shopped at my little store just thrills me.
And, the average visit to each page is 2 minutes, 34 seconds. I think that is amazing, considering how I flit around the internet. 2.34 minutes is a long time to stay on one webpage, so I must be doing something right!
So a big thank you to everyone who took the time to visit my shop and browse the items, and hey, if you know happen to know anyone living in Rhode Island, tell them to go have a look-see, okay?
