Have You Been Spotted?

Have you guys heard of IndieSpotting? It is a gallery that showcases photos of indie and handmade goods. What's great is that the photo you submit will link to any site you want, ex. your etsy shop, your website. IndieSpotting just displays the item for you, giving you more exposure, and what's even better, it's free. The other thing I really like about this site is that they only allow you to submit 1 item per week, which allows everyone a chance for some exposure.

Your image will need to be 200 pixels high and 200 pixels wide. They look for quality photos, so make sure your lighting is good, the image is clear and it is really good quality. The site really tries to get all eligible photos up on the site within 24-48 hours of submission. You will receive an email when the item is up.

They also have a badge that you can post on your blog to promote the site - more traffic to the site and mean more traffic to your shop!

Here is the link the FAQ page, and from this page you can click 'submit an Indie find and submit your item.

So what are you waiting for, go, go go...get some free exposure!
