So you're having a SALE?

Well, you're not alone! It might be a coupon code, or items marked down in your shop, but it's going to be most successful if you let potential buyers know about it.

A wander through our list of Chat Team members shows how some are putting their Etsy avatars to work as tiny 75x75-pixel billboards, advertising their sales throughout the site.

Since avatars go with us everywhere - shops, chat, forums, teams, convos - it makes sense to use them well. The sellers above have incorporated a Sale message in their avatars; some add a graphic to item photos, and Etsy offers free ready-made avatars, avatar layers, and Sale banners, here.

  1. Thank you for including my shop avatar as an example!
