Original Post

Hi, I am VERY NEW to Etsy...in fact I just became a member today. A good friend of mine made the recommendation that I join because he knows that my team and I do awesome graphic design work! I haven't even opened my shop yet buy got an email from Mary Andrews and it talked about teams, so I decided to check them out.

As I saw what kinds of teams there are on Etsy I got excited! Why?

Well, I have been a full-time entrepreneur and business owner since 2006 and I have been the owner or part owner of several companies. All of these companies specialized in helping entrepreneurs and business owners get more customers. I have even been a part business owner in two Facebook Marketing companies.

If you want to know how to grow your business on Facebook I have a very valuable FREE gift for you!

Facebook is forcing everybody to change over to the Timeline format, for their Profile Page and their Facebook Business Pages ( aka – Fan Page ) whether they want to or not.

I have decided to create and give away Facebook Timeline Covers, designed to promote your Etsy Shops, too 1,000 Etsy Shop owners...for FREE!!! I just set this blog up a few minutes ago so you can get your FREE Facebook Timeline Covers to promote your Etsy business: etsymarketingmadeeasy.blogspot.com

Hurry up and go to the blog ASAP! There are over 200,000 Etsy Shop owners and right now I am only giving away FREE Facebook Timeline Covers to 1,000 people right now.

Thank you for letting me share this gift with you!

Sincerely, Kevin

Repeatedly posting threads that have been closed in other teams and forums will get your shop shut down.

I tried to be nice in your prior post after everyone jumped on you - but now you know better and I will not do it again.

Kevin -
Welcome to Etsy. I am sure your intentions are well intended. There has been so much spam lately here on the forums, that unfortunately it has left a bad taste in our mouths, so it is not warmly received and some snarkiness and harsh criticism can run amok and unchecked.
Etsy is suppose to be a welcoming community of people supporting one another in their talents, artistic ability and our small business ventures and its also a learn as you go opportunity.
There are many things to read and know about Etsy and we would all strongly encourage you to read up a bit on them as it will help you much in the future.
The forums can be a very scary and ruthless place to venture out in, and you need to wade carefully in these waters sometimes.
Best of luck to you!

I think there is a new open source ( which means free!) for this sort of thing. I just read about it in Mashable- great site BTW.


Anyhoo, here is the story link:
