Hi

Yes, you can promote your items on Pinterest and other social media - you may find this thread useful
https://artyah.discussion.community/post/artyah-social-media-list-8880678?highlight=social+media&pid=1297914307

Artyah are just starting to do advertising so at the moment we are largely having to try and bring in customers ourselves

To add your shop link / signature go to Control Panel tab at the top of the page and select edit, scroll down to the bottom option to add/edit your signature

Thank you for the tip, Christine.
I've been promoting my shops on the items I pin to my Pinterest page.
However, when I try to link my shop on my profile page, I keep getting an error message stating the DNS address can't be found.

FYI, my browser doesn't have the "control", "edit", "options", so I select "settings" and "profile".
There's a space for my Artyah site, and after entering the address and click "confirm", the error message appears.

Any help would be appreciated!
Pat

Pat are you trying to link your shop in the website area??
If so I have not been able to get that to work.

I just add my shop links in the about section.
I am not sure if they are clickable but at least they are there.

Hi Pat - the forum has these options, if you are logged in then you should be able to see them whichever browser you are using  Control Panel is one of the tabs above the forum posts, others are Calendar, Search, Latest Topics, Chat etc

 

We may well be talking at cross purposes though, are you trying to add your shop name to your signature - such as most people have in blue below their posts - and I have in pink?

Hi Christine,
Perhaps we're talking about two different things here? I apologize for the confusion - my post was about issues with Pinterest, and not the AY forums. I was under the impression that the original post was about using Pinterest to promote AY.
It appears that my Pinterest photos successfully link to the corresponding items in my shop(s), but the shop address on my Pinterest main / homepage doesn't seem to work - or rather, it won't link directly to my AY shop homepage(s), and when I enter it in my Pinterest profile settings, the error message comes up.

It's a minor detail, but was hoping that  someone might know what I'm doing wrong.
Thanks in advance for any advice!
Pat

I have read somewhere that you have to do some copy and pasting with Pinterest .  I detest it and consider it purely a copyright infringing site so do not use it.

I was replying to the second part of the question in the first post [smile]

I hope you've gotten your answer, but I don't understand your question. There is a Pinterest share button under the default image of each listing. I click it and pin my listing to some of my pin boards, or to an Artyah group board. Someone mentioned the need to copy and paste to share at Pinterest. I've never had to do that to pin a listing that links back to my shop. I can also share/promote by uploading an image from my computer, but it would not link to my shop because it was not pinned from my shop. I've not tried to link an image that I uploaded from my computer. Maybe that is what some have tried to do, add a clickable link to a local image.

Are you asking something different from this?
