It's going to take a while ... but.

We've had 53 new forum members in the first 8 days of this year.

At that rate ... we will reach 5,000 members by the end of this year.

What should I do now?

@Seniorpreneur

Agreed on the actively participate ... but we have a good core of folk here already who keep the lurkers happy.

Thanks for your participation!

Active is always the key - without the interaction, we learn nothing from each other.

@belew @bdaoust, @all,

I haven't participated much except to lurk because I am busy researching what works and what does not to drive traffic of the correct kind to my Etsy site.

It would seem that well crafted descriptive keywords in titles, keyword entries and the folksy dialog in the product description goes a long way to getting traffic.

Also I am building a larger number of followers on twitter, seemingly because I tweet interesting content (about what I do and how/why I do it) interspersed with blatant advertising tweets.

One curious thing - My Wordpress blog I neglect, but when I do post something there I get a sudden "leap" in both blog and etsy traffic.

If you want more ppl to come to your site ... give them more reasons to come.

6.6 new members per day this year ... that .6 guy can't really make up his/her mind.

People are like that sometimes.

Jump in. You know you want to.

Welcomed our 2900th member to the forum this morning!

That's a lot of focused people to learn from or teach.

Which one are you ... a teacher or a learner?

10 of the last 10 members to join the forum are from DIFFERENT countries.

That's never happened before.

13 of the last 20 members are from DIFFERENT countries.

Take a look at where people are coming from in this image.

Ask yourself:

Who are you learning from? <= Learn 6 benefits of being a student here.
Who are you teaching? <= Learn 10 benefits to being a teacher here.
