Anymore, it seems like almost everything I do is online. We have so much helpful technology that we can shop online, play games, read articles, and all sorts of things. What you may not know is that there are tools that make our online world even easier. The following article will give you information about tools that will make your daily use of the internet even easier.
Why not start with the largest online retailer? I imagine that many of you make use of the amazon wish list feature. (If you don’t, you should!) It allows you to save items on Amazon that you would like to have and you can share this list with your friends and family. It makes birthday and holiday shopping a lot easier. You can also save things on a private shopping list that allows you to save items that you intend to purchase in the future.
However, did you know that you can save any item from any site to your Amazon wish list? It’s super easy! All you have to do is go here:
You simply install the button on your browser and then you can just click the button any time you are shopping to save what you want! It sure beats bookmarks and it makes sharing things so much easier. Now, when I say “install”, don’t be afraid… all you have to do is drag the button to the top of the screen. It’s really that easy.
Okay, let’s move on to Etsy. Now I no longer have an Etsy store so I have not personally been involved in the huge growth the site has seen recently. However, I understand that it has made things hard for sellers because it can be hard to optimize your search terms or know where you show up in the results without digging through the pages manually. Luckily, there are lots of tools out there for sellers! Try visiting:
They have two tools in particular that would make store development and product descriptions much easier. The first is Tag Wars which allows you to enter two sets of search tags. It then returns results from Etsy on how many items have that tag in their descriptions, how many times a day that particular tag search occurs, and how popular the tags are.
The second tool is WALL-E. This tool allows you to enter a store name and keyword combination. It then queries Etsy and will let you know exactly where your items would end up (in the first 20 pages) if a user performed that search on Etsy itself. It keeps the store owner from having to do a manual search when listing a new item to determine what page your item ends up on. It is especially helpful in determining your product relevancy based on your search terms.
