AWEteam March 2012 Chat Thread, New & Re-Listed Items

Who can join?

AWEteam has the following requirements:

Anyone selling on can participate in the First Friday Art Walk on by using the tag: FirstFridayArtWalk on any currently listed item in your shop.

If you want to further be part of this monthly event, promote your items, promote other artists on this team, and the First Friday Art Walk Weekend event itself, please join our team. We would love to have you!

If you decide to join:
1. Introduce yourself and add your social media, if any, to our Welcome 2013 thread.

2. Add our team tag AWETeam to a few of your favorite, trending, seasonally appropriate, etc items.

3. Add a few of those items in the special listings threads for colors, themes, etc.

4. Add up to 4 items per month to the official, monthly "First Friday Art Walk Event Thread". It is up to you if you want to run a promotion or just show off your new work.

5. Feel out the team, help promote, ask questions, jump on in.

A Few "House Keeping" Things for this team:
1. Please put any shop promotions not related to the First Friday Art Walk Event, Introductions, Events you are in, etc into the current monthly chat thread.

2. Please do not start a new thread without sending the captain a message and wait for a reply. The chat may be the appropriate place for your topic.

3. Please be aware of your listing habits. We want to avoid the threads seeming spammy with one shop listing every item from their shop. List a few of your best, and most relevant to that thread, and people that are interested will click through to see your entire shop.

Let's make this a fun and relaxed promotional team with a goal to show off and promote new work with a monthly deadline. And of course - you will meet some amazing creative people that you may become friends with for life.

Welcome to our Art Walk Etsy Team!
We hope you will join us...
Artist of Marsha Neal Studio and current Captain of the AWETeam.

I've had a few questions here and there via convo from members asking about the best way to get involved with the actual First Friday Art Walk Event (other than general team participation of chatting, sharing work, etc).

So I thought I would copy and paste this for everyone just as a refresher or for some clarification if you need it:

For first friday via awe team:
1. Tag to use on a few of your items: AWETeam FFAW

2. For general First Friday: FirstFridayArtWalk

3. AWETeam members should add a few items to the discussion thread (just copy and paste a few different items from your shop) and details for any promotions you are running - such as XXXX coupon code gets you XXX% off or Free Shipping (whatever you choose) from March 2 - 4, 2012 (or whatever your start & end date is).
Here is the March Thread:

4. AWETeam members should also add their shop URL to the blog post for First Friday (makes it easier to share the event through social media outlets via the blog post).
Here is the March Post:

5. If you create or are in an AWETeam treasury, make sure you post it to the Treasury Discussion thread currently open.
Here is the March Thread:

If you are syndicated go to google shopping and see how many of your items are showing up
I have a whole 27 in this shop and only 7 out of 300+ in the attic shop
There is a thread in bugs where you can ask for a push and they re index your items into google shopping
This has been going on for a long long time now and our listings fall out of google shopping
