Specifically with Twitter, I've noticed a trend of product photos not posting every time with the tweet. Sometimes yes, sometimes no. It's spotty. Would like all the photos to post, as shoppers are visual. Is this glitch, or is it supposed to do this randomly?

Hello DC! There is another thread about this. I've been working with Pinterest, but they don't know what's wrong. I'll go over to the other thread and post an update.

Here's the thread:

Sorry DC....I misread and thought you said Pinterest. I replied and updated in the other thread.

Is anyone else having this problem? I'm not talking about Pinterest now. Has happened 80% of the time on Twitter. Really getting freaking frustrated with this. Can't sell something if no one can SEE IT!

I know Trump and a bunch of celebrities use Twitter, but I have never found any value in it. Perhaps because I don't really understand how to use it as I do Pinterest and FB. This month I got an order in via FB which hasn't happened in the last three years, also got orders via Pinterest, Bing, Google, and Direct. I stopped using twitter as such years ago. I do have it checked to automatically send a post when that is doable, but never do it as a separate way of using social media. Not sure if that makes sense or not. I just know that I found trying to do Twitter feeds was like hit my head against a brick wall for all the good it did me.

Wish I could help DC. I don't recall anyone here saying that they have had success with using Twitter.

Yeah FaceBook and I aren't getting along right now. Twitter at least increases hits and awareness, even though I haven't had a sale proven to originate from there. More hits isn't a bad thing. Since my Twitter is geared to the store only, I just use it for posting listings for the most part anymore. I keep thinking I'm going to do something with the other account to separate the tweets, but I've come to realize over the past couple years that the whole of Hollywood celebrities live in a bubble and can't get their heads out of their own aspirations of how politics and the world should be. So if I do post personal stuff, I'm pretty sure it will get REALLY personal and not particularly conducive to promote sales. So best to keep the two as separate as possible.

I really want to get instagram going. I feel that could be my wheelhouse. But the limitation of being a primarily phone based program is proving difficult to get off the ground.

Have I mentioned marketing in the past 5 years has become like trying to catch a hurricane with a butterfly net?

DC, I don't use Twitter....yet. Many of us, however, are still having Pinterest issues. Pinterest states there is no problem on their end, and Dimitar at eCrater says he can't see a problem. I've talked to both - twice.

So, if you are having issues with twitter, please contact Dimitar and ask him to look at it because he might then see that it's not just a Pinterest issue, and might see an overall issue that needs a fix on the eCrater side of things. I have to wait at least three days after listing an item before trying to Pin it....not sure yet exactly why. Thanks, and good luck with the Twitter issue! Let us know how this turns out.
