About this team

UNDER CONSTRUCTION
PLEASE PARDON US, WHILE WE REVAMP OUR TEAM!

Welcome to Shop Therapy, proud recipients of 2013 and 2014 Etsy Fellowship Grants! We’re glad you joined us and we look forward to being a part of your growth and success.

Shop Therapy's mission is to help each other achieve our goals through mutual promotion, help each other grow our businesses by offering advice and sharing ideas and to build a strong and supportive community among our members.

We are not a team based on self –promotion or a post and run team. We all take great pride in our shops and our work and want to grow and share them but we are a team not just about shops, but also about people. We are also a team who doesn't want to sit back and wait for success to happen, we want to make it happen!

Here are some ways to be a team player:

• acknowledge other people's posts
• share insight, knowledge and advice
• provide critiques of teammates shops and work when asked and be constructive
• ask questions and share concerns
• be active in the Etsy team as well as in the Facebook group
• help promote members by favoriting items and shops, "like" on facebook, tweet, pin, etc, whenever possible
• visit your teammate’s blogs and follow them and comment on posts
• provide moral support when a teammate is having a rough time

Our team holds a number of events and promotions. Although you are not required to participate in these events, we do expect that if you sign-on, that you follow-through. In an effort to make sure everyone is being promoted/supported fairly, consistently signing-up for events and failing to participate, may cause us to suspend your invitations to group events and promotions.

Drama, negativity, and harassment WILL NOT be tolerated in this group and offenders may be suspended or removed.
You will find this is a very giving team.

We look forward to growing with you in our shops and our work because of our team spirit and generosity.

Our official team tag is #cpromot. Be sure to use it in your treasuries and item tags so we can find you.

Additionally, we promote in all of the following forums:
