I am truly amazed by the wonderful supportive teams that Etsy has to offer. I have been posting items in my shop since April and only recently discovered the power of the teams within the last few weeks. I have joined a few and continue to learn so much from them.
The Handmade Movement Team was brought to my attention earlier this week. What is the Handmade Movement you ask? Well, let me tell you, they bring the term "supportive" up to a whole new level.
This team is not for new shops, exactly. This team is a group of people determined to help the new shops. If you are all about helping the new shops then this team is for you! If you have a successful shop on Etsy, maybe you remember what it felt like in the beginning when the sales were not coming in. You know how hard it can be getting started and how frustrating it is waiting for those first few sales.
Handmade Movement actually searches out those new shops that have no or just a few sales! They go in and give those shops a sneak attack. A sneak attack, from what I understand, can be done by purchasing items from that shop, adding the shop to their favorites or circles, adding items to their favorites, and generating lots of traffic into the shop! How amazing is that?!?!
So, in closing, I would just like to say that this team is doing a truly wonderful service for Etsy and if you are able to become a sponsor on this team, check them out today!!
