You have to wonder why a site that has actually left the definition of handmade behind, and works constantly to shine its headlights on trends, throw-away and poorly made products and encourages sellers to underprice would be able to come up with a wide-appeal advertising campaign. They needed to bring in a PR consultant 2 years ago. Advertising on and off the site hasn't changed or increased to meet the needs of hundreds of thousands of sellers, and the thousands that are added each month.
The further etsy moves away from helping the individual artist, the less hope there is that they will start doing the right thing for this site and it's reputation.
Success is so 80's
there's not many businesses that don't want to become huge and successful. maybe etsy is one of those i don't know.
When I really want to make myself good and mad dog-angry, I just browse a little bit through all of the amazing oppertunities available in Alchemy and then I decide to go walk barefoot in glass shards instead.
