Hi friends! Our first ever team planning thread! May our efforts bring joy and a loving care for children and the earth through growing our businesses :)

TEAM TIPS in summary of the post by fairiesnest in the google group
Here are some things we can do to help the team thrive:
1. tag items correctly ("naturalkids team", and "summer party" when appropriate)
2. make team treasuries
3. visit all team treasuries, click once on each of the items and
leave a comment (this really makes a big difference in number of views
a treasury gets)
4. visit the team and promo threads often
5. add a link to your personal blog for a team search:

6. We now have a Flickr group so please come join us!
www.flickr.com/groups/726799@N25/ Remember that while it
perfectly okay to post your Etsy items and pictures on Flicker you may
not have any links back to you shop except in your profile.
7. have fun!!!!!

Now that our summer party is swingin' (thanks Orit and Haddy and everyone!), I think a great next step would be to think about improving our blog.

Any ideas?

oolcomesalive-can you explain this in more details?

"3. visit all team treasuries, click once on each of the items and

Sure Orit.
With treasuries, the default order they list the treasuries is by how "hot" they are. So the hottest ones are on page one of the treasuries list, etc. "Hot" means how many times they were viewed, how many clicks there are, and how many comments. To "click" you click your mouse on the box that shows each item - which takes you to the full page of that item. You are allowed up to 12 click per computer per treasury (one for each item).
If our team treasury gets more clicks,etc. it moves closer to page one of the treasury list. There it is more likely to be viewed by people who are just browsing through the treasury lists.
I hope that helps :)

Just think, if everyone clicked on each item of a team treasury we'd have 500+ clicks! Wow, that's HOT!
