Thursday Etsy Tips: Etsy Mini

An Etsy Mini allows you to display a sampling of your shop or favoured items on your own website or blog. It is an easy way to advertise your products. The images are clickable and take the viewer straight to the listings.

To make your own Etsy Mini, click Listings Manager from the drop down menu connected with Your Shop, located in the top right corner of any page.

On the left hand column, locate the Promote section, near the bottom. Click Etsy Mini.

Now you are able to customize how you would like the Etsy Mini to appear.

You can choose to display either items from your shop or items from your favourites. If you are going with items from your shop, you may click the box to show up to 4 featured items first, so you can have control over what is displayed on the top row. Otherwise the order will coincide with the most recent items added to your shop.

The size (thumbnail or gallery) and the number of columns and rows are all personal preference and can be changed depending on what works best for you.

You can play around with these preferences and see a Preview to determine what you like best. Once you are happy with your choice copy the code provided to use on your website or blog.
