When asked what advice I would give to other Etsy shop owners in my answer I usually say "be an active team member." Etsy teams are a great way to network with other shop owners and help your shop gain exposure. I belong to a number of teams and made my own team as well. I find that in teams you get help and also make great friends.
I have currently joined a team called "We Have Your Back" where all team members participate in helping one another. This team is full of very active team members, and let me tell you, they really do have your back for everything!
Meet the team Captain and Leaders:
Dana Brady (Captain): Visit her shop ButtonTopSugarShop
Earl R. Branham (Leader): Visit his shop ThoreauFair
Jessi (Leader): Visit PJsCraftingCorner
(I will be featuring each shop and their story in future posts)
In the team there is a discussion thread called Shop Spotlight where a shop will be chosen and featured for an entire week!! During this entire week team members help the featured shop get noticed by posting links on various social media sites, liking items, making treasuries; anything to help the shop gain exposure.
For the week of 4/18 - 4/25 I had the honor of being chosen to be shop spotlight of the week! I am very excited about this opportunity and look forward to being able to feature many shops on my blog for upcoming Shop Spotlights.
