Team Newsletter #1

(Please convo me your email address so I can email you this newsletter (at most, once a week).

Thanks for being a part of our team. Besides organizing treasury giveaways, we’re also dedicated to promoting our products within the team and as a team.

We started a team blog: treasurygiveaway.blogspot.com To be featured in our team blog, email me an introduction of you/your shop. Include links to a few items you like in your shop. Pictures are better than words! Here are some ideas to write about:

How did you get started on Etsy?
What kind of products do you sell?
What are your favorites in your store?

Also, Nicole Phillips from SayitWithPaper (www.etsy.com/shop/SayitWithPaper) volunteered to review team member’s shop and pin some of our items to our Pin board (pinterest.com/dorkabrain/etsy-the-treasury-giveaway-team/). Since not everyone likes to be featured on pinterest, Nicole will only pin your items if you give her permission to do so in our thread (www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9853154...).

Every business owner should have his/her business cards with them at all times. You will never know when the opportunity comes up to give a potential customer your card! Moo.com and Etsy are offering 50 FREE business cards (us.moo.com/en/partner/etsy-business-cards/?utm_source=partner&utm_m...) Just pay shipping. I just ordered mines last week, shipping was $5.50 by USPS. I didn’t get my order yet but I read from a lot of other team discussions that Moo.com is very good quality.

Jacque, our team leader and I put together a starter kit for Etsy Sellers. It includes great files to organize your business and a Swarovski Sandisk USB drive to save your files and pictures on. www.etsy.com/listing/93742630/etsy-seller-business-organizer-starter

Convo me your email address to receive our newsletter. It will be a weekly newsletter (sometimes less often). Your email will be safe. I won’t use it for SPAM or give out our email address to others. Our goal is to build a meaningful and useful team to help increase our Etsy sales! Spread the word! Would love to have more members.

Team Newsletter #2

(Please convo me your email address so I can email you this newsletter (at most, once a week).

This week we featured Nicole in our team blog: treasurygiveaway.blogspot.com We’re still looking forward to introducing more members! To be featured in our team blog, email me an introduction of you/your shop. Include links to a few items you like in your shop. Pictures are better than words! Here are some ideas to write about:

-How did you get started on Etsy?
-What kind of products do you sell?
-What are your favorites in your store?

We’re in the process of creating a team directory for the team. With the directory, hopefully members would look there first if something needs to be purchased and support each other’s business! Also we can advertise the list to our customers to increase each other’s business. If you want to be in our directory, please provide:

- your shop's name
- your first name (want to be personable, but you can skip it if you want)
- a category that fits your items
- link to your Etsy shop
- link FB fan page (if you have one)

The directory will be posted in our blog and/or a webpage for our team (probably on Weebly.com). If you have suggestions on where to host the directory, let me know.

Yesterday, I started a social thread. I intend to start a social thread everyweek for us to just chat. When you’re ready to take a break from all these business related discussions, come over and just talk about anything! Here’s the thread for the rest of the weekend www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9897032...

I posted a special offer in our advertising thread. I’m offering a special rate for the Treasury Giveaway Team members for my custom Youtube video: $15 ($10 off regular price). Just convo me and I'll make a custom order w/that price! www.etsy.com/listing/94141100/custom-video-to-use-on-youtube-using

Finally, here’s an inspiration w/tips to read about! www.etsy.com/teams/5002/etsy-success/discuss/9902106/page/2/?post_i...

Team Newsletter #3

(Please convo me your email address so I can email you this newsletter (at most, once a week).

The big announcement this week is our Team Directory (treasurygiveawayteam.weebly.com/)! Before you buy, please check to see if one of our team member is selling what you’re looking for. Let’s support each other! Also, please check to see your links are working and everything is correct. If not, please let me know. If you haven’t signed up for the directory, do so in this thread: www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9883357...

Now that our directory is up, what else do we want on our website? I’ll post our treasury giveaways there as well. Anyone else have/seen a team website? Let me know if you have ideas.

Our March Treasury Giveaway (www.etsy.com/treasury/MTkwNDM0MTZ8MjMxNTI4ODUzMw/march-treasury-giv...) is coming to an end on 3/15. Also our St. Patrick’s Day Treasury Giveaway (www.etsy.com/treasury/MTkzOTk1NTN8MjE5ODA2ODU1OA/st-patricks-day-tr...) will end on 3/17. Now is the time for us to do some last minute promoting!

Jacque is organizing our Spring Treasury Giveaway. It will run from 3/20 - 4/8 (Easter). For those who participate, please make sure the participating item is not due to expire during the treasury. We have had issues with items disappearing from other treasuries. To join the giveaway, post in this thread: www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9943500...

One last thing... remember to promote our team! We would love to expand our active membership.

Team Newsletter #4

(Please convo me your email address so I can email you this newsletter (at most, once a week).
Treasury, treasury, treasury! Let’s all make some treasuries. I’ve been using this great tool to help me speed up the treasury making process: shmetsy.com/tools.html. Don’t forget to post/check our “Tools” thread for useful tools (www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9938969...) I would love to create more team based treasuries to increase all of our exposure. Please add the tag: TG Team in your items so we can search for team items easily. Post your shop to this thread after you added the tag (www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/1005666...).

A few weeks ago we created our Team Directory (treasurygiveawayteam.weebly.com/)! Before you buy, please check to see if one of our team member is selling what you’re looking for. Let’s support each other! If you haven’t signed up for the directory, do so in this thread: www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9883357...

Just a reminder, to prevent confusion, please post information regarding third party giveaways or other third party info on our promotion thread. Lastly, come and talk story on our weekly social threads!

Team Newsletter #5

(Please convo me your email address so I can email you this newsletter (at most, once a week).

Creating treasuries is another way for us to network with other Etsy sellers and increase our own shop exposure. A new thread for a themed treasury thread will be posted each week. The first theme is BEACH. www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/10094517/

Jacque and I each created a treasury on this theme.

Hello Beach. www.etsy.com/treasury/MTkwNDM0MTZ8MjY5MTI2MTg0Mw/hello-beach

Gonna be a Beach Bum! www.etsy.com/treasury/MTkzOTk1NTN8MjY5MjkyNzIwMQ/gonna-be-a-beach-bum

Hope to see more beach themed treasuries this week!

Don’t forget to post all your other treasuries in the Share Your Treasuries thread: www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/10068667/

Please support each other’s treasuries by leaving comments in it :-)

Lastly, stop by to play one of my favorite Etsy games - Favorite Item from the Shop Above. www.etsy.com/teams/11813/the-treasury-giveaway-team/discuss/9961004...

Once again... created my first treasury - thanks to Regina.... it was a lot of fun to put together especially as a die hard shopper window or otherwise.

Now it's happy hour!
