Expanding My Etsy Experience Via Teams

Blogged under etsy,Social Networking by Tammy on Sunday 20 July 2008 at 4:23 pm

eSmart TeamI really had no master plan about this, but some how I found myself joining an Etsy team. These are groups of people who are all members of Etsy.com and for various reasons “team up” with each other for a common cause, normally to help promote each other. There are tons and tons of teams on Etsy, and though I did at one point look at the lists and think about it, I held off for awhile because I was pretty much overwhelmed by the number of teams that exist and also wasn’t sure how much time I’d have to devote to one, and of course, time I never have a whole lot of!

Then one day I was hanging out at the Etys forums, something I’m doing way too much of lately, and I saw a post where someone mentioned the eSmart Team, a team devoted to exploring social networking as a way to help promote themselves. A little bell went off for me, and minutes later I was a member. I’m not sure how active I will be, but I’ve already got some blog posts set to publish near the end of this month on the group’s weblog, eSmart Team Blog.

Hopefully, I will be able to give as much as I get from this group when it comes to learning more about social networking. If nothing else, it will expand my Etsy experience, and hey I may get a few more fine silver star charms sold!

    Hi Tammy!
    Welcome to the eSMArts group. We can be a bit serious at times as most of our members are results oriented! And like many etsy teams there’s not much idle chit chat going on at our forum. But I hope you find our interaction informative and rewarding.

    I hope you continue sharing your insights and broad knowledge base with our members – many of whom have very little ecommerce or internet expertise.

    Wishing you all the best with your etsy store. After all, the true measure of social marketing benefits will be sales 🙂
    Talk soon,
    -AnnaLee in Toronto
