keyboard_arrow_downHow to start running Quirkito and promote my Etsy listings?
After you have linked your Twitter account to your Etsy shop, configure the tweet frequency. You can use one of the two frequency sliders available, or both of them.
For example, configure one slider by setting the interval to maximum, from 0-23 (the whole day), the frequency from 1 hour to 23 hours and enable it.
You can have more flexibility by configuring the two sliders. You can send tweets, for example, once every hour between your work hours 8 - 18, but only every 4 hours outside your work hour. In this example, you will configure the first slider from 8 - 18 and set the frequency to 1 and the second slider from 0 - 23 and set the frequency to 4. Make sure to enable both sliders.
Next, start your Twitter subscription and start promoting your listings by purchasing credits and extending your subscription for 1, 3 or 12 months. Quirkito makes it easy for you to choose the right plan for your shop!
