Etsy Owls

Who can join?

Etsy Owls has the following requirements:

We are accepting new members, but are small and not a fast paced team. We are especially looking for members who are outside the box who are looking to help a team grow.

If you want a highly active, fast paced team, we are probably not the team for you.

***

Etsy Owls (which stands for Off the Wall Ladies) is a group of gals from all over who strive to help one another be successful through support, promotions, and challenges. We strive to be exemplary Etsyians who honor our customers and treat them accordingly.


We are a socially-based Team, and our activities as a group are usually team chats and meetings, creative challenges, promotions and sales, and time spent here on Etsy.

We are our own community within Etsy, and by joining our community you will be given the chance to help, inspire, and support others, and to receive that in return. It is important to understand that you will get what you give in joining our team. Our hope is that you will build meaningful connections and grow in your own creative endeavors. As leader of this team, I can't even begin to explain how much being a part of this group has helped me grow in my own shops.

At the present, we are a small team with around 80 members. We are asking, in the event we accept your membership, that you be willing to commit the required time to the OWLS.

Ways to stay active are outlined more specifically below. We currently do not require monthly activity as we're recovering from a major down period, but we're hoping that any new members will have lots of energy and excitement to give to the team!

We like as many people as possible to participate in our creative challenges, but they are optional, as is participating in any team event or sale. It is very important that we get a good amount of participation from the team in order for us to grow as a group and to remain successful. Activity in the group will keep you in the spotlight on Etsy and will be beneficial to you in the long run.

That being said, what follows are our rules and conditions. Joining means you have read and will comply with these rules to the best of your ability.

****************************************************
RULES:

ACTIVITY:

All members should try to stay active!!

Activity is judged on a monthly basis, and ways to stay active include posting here in the Group, replying to a relevant team email, or participating in a team event such as a chat night or meeting, a creative challenge, sale, or other promotion. We make exceptions if you are out of town, have a medical situation, or are otherwise occupied. In those cases, it is your responsibility to alert us of your impending absence. Please remember that because we are a small team, participation is vital to our survival and it's beneficial to you!

We will send out regular emails alerting you to events, challenges and other important goings on in the Group. You can choose which events you'd like to take part in, but of course the more the better! If after 3 months we have not heard from you and you have not posted OR participated (THEN WHY JOIN A TEAM!) you may be sent a convo asking if you'd like to remain a member. If you are still listing items on Etsy (thus running an active shop) and you do not reply within two weeks, your team membership will be terminated. (This time will be extended if your shop is closed at the time)

PROMOTIONS and DUES:

We do not collect any required dues as a team, but occasionally opportunities will come up to receive Etsy promotional materials or team promotional materials (such as cards or stickers), and members will be asked to pay a small fee to receive those ( a $5 maximum, usually much lower, and this fee covers costs to ship such items to you). These fees will always be 100% optional, and if you cannot afford the fees, but want the items, exceptions will be made. We would never exclude someone from an activity who wanted to be involved, regardless of ability to pay.

Code of Honor:

I agree to uphold good shop policies and good customer service. I will always keep my customers as my first priority. I will make sure they are well informed of changes to my shop and/or shipping information by updating my announcements page as needed

I agree to always price my merchandise appropriately. Underselling hurts not only myself, but the handmade community as well. Overcharging hurts just as badly.

I agree to always leave appropriate feedback for buyers and for sellers.

I will strive to maintain standards which will reward me with positive feedback.

I will always do my best to help create a fun and enthusiastic atmosphere in the Etsy community. I will always be a friend to my fellow OWLS and will push myself and my teammates to do our best work ever.

I will be understanding of the weirdness. :)

About this team

Off The Wall is an Etsy Street Team made up of crafty people from all over the world. We're a rowdy group who likes to hang out on Etsy and promote each other! We have no one form of media---we encourage all creativity!

We enrich ourselves through team challenges to expand our mediums and to push each member to create their best pieces.

Being "Off the Wall" means being open to new ideas and then decoupaging them with OLD ideas.
It means creating a new view from which to look at the world and then smashing it.
It means lending a hand and then making a papier mache sculpture of that hand.

This street team is for wild and crazy Etsyians who don't always walk the straight and narrow!

We are a social street team, so if you're looking for a team to join and sit in the corner watching, we are not that team. We promote one another through team challenges, treasuries, sales promotions, social networking, and use of our team tag helps get you included in everything promotions based.

Our main rules are: Be an Etsy Seller, have a good feedback rating (if any) and current shop inventory, and be prepared to join a team that requires your attention.

We are currently recovering from a period of inactivity and are looking for energy and spirit to add to our own! Bring your excitement and lets hit the ground running!
