Introducing The New About Page For Your Shop
Sign in to participate in this discussion.
This discussion is public.
We've long ago established that telling your story on Etsy (of your product, of yourself, and of your shop) is incredibly important. Today we launched a dedicated place in your shop where you can share your story with the world. In your shop’s new About page you can add pictures of your process and talk through the special details that set your shop apart. You can learn more and see some examples of this page in action, here:
So now that you have this blank slate, how do you go about telling your story? Before you pull your hair out, check out the following resources for tips and best practices to apply when storytelling:
- Tips for Your Shop’s About Page: www.etsy.com/blog/en/2012/tips-for-your-shops-about-page/
- Why Your Product and Profile Need a Compelling Story (watch the video!): www.etsy.com/blog/en/2012/why-your-profile-and-product-need-a-compe...
Have you published yours yet? Do share a link to your shop’s About page when you’ve finished it. We can’t wait to read your story, and we might just might share a few of our favorite pages on Twitter!

now, i have a question, my wife is a member my model, i declared her, but now that she is a "team member" does she need to create an etsy account?
Members of your shop don't necessarily need to have an Etsy account.
If they do, that's great. The more the merrier!
If not, no stress.

That's lovely, I just created mine. But my photographs are being cropped, what is the right format for them to display properly ?

The large photos on the top are displayed at 760 x 428 pixels!

Thanks for sharing your published About pages with us. We're going to share some of our favorites and talk about choosing photos for this page in the Online Labs now (at 3pm ET). Join us here:
Hope to "see" you there!

Here is mine.
I hop between 2 countries a lot, so I don't really have a proper "craft corner".
So, I mostly showcase my stash and tools, instead of my craft room, since I don't have one.
Let me know what you think about it, thanks a lot (:
