Coming soon - CASTteam Promo Thread

Faith Cross Pendant by CROSSyourHeart on Etsy
One of the best decisions I have made since starting My ETSY shop was to join the CAST team  (Christian Artists Street Team)  It's a great place to meet and share with other like minded Christians.  The threads are always full of love and support.  If you are in need of prayer you can post your request and instantly other members will pray.  For many of the members, business is secondary to ministering to one another.  But we would like to promote our businesses too so the CAST Etsy team is going to host a weekly promo thread!  With well over 1000 members, I think that a thread dedicated to promoting our shops on ETSY could be a great success.

Would you like to get noticed and produce more traffic to your shop? Then plan to join with us by visiting the thread, posting your item on the list and then promoting at least the three previous post on the list.  I would recommend that you use a social media site like Facebook or Twitter.  These are good sources since Facebook has 500 million users and Twitter has 140 million users.  Another idea is to use a bookmarking site like Stumbleupon or Kaboodle.   These sites allow you to bookmark and share your favorite sites from around the web.  I plan to devote more time to support and promote others' shops at the beginning.  I hope others will too.   I know that many of us are busy with family and other responsibilities so we don't want anyone to feel overwhelmed. Even if everyone just does a little, it will go a long way.
