PART 1 GETTING TO KNOW YOUR ETSY LISTING OPTIONS-
 
Shop Sections
 

How do I create and manage shop sections

sECTIONS

Sections are a useful way to organize item listings in your shop. Your sections are displayed as links in the left sidebar of your shop. You can use sections to group together item listings by type, size, or any other category you’d like. You may have up to 10 custom sections, as well as the default All Items section that is available in every shop.
To add or manage your Sections, click Your Shop and go to Sections on the left.
To add a new section, click Create new section, type in the name of a new section, then click Save. A section’s name is limited to a maximum of 24 characters.

for mobile viewers this is especially important to their shopping experience!
(***Sections left empty.. will not show up in your shop – USE EVERY ONE 
use all sections available // in mobile view it shows sections with one listing each, so your store looks empty if all your sections are not used. )))))))

To edit your sections’ names, click the pencil link next to a particular section.
You can remove a section by clicking the trash can icon. Removing a section does not deactivate the listings within that section. These listings will now appear in All Items.
To put your items into Sections, choose All Items on this page. Click the checkbox next to the listings you want in a specific section, then select the section name from the drop down menu and click Save. 
You can also move or remove listings from a section this way. Sections that do not have any item listings will not appear on your public shop page. You can only place a listing in one section.
Drag and drop the move icon to change the order in which the sections appear in your shop.
You can also add an individual item to a section when creating or editing the listing. There is a drop down menu for your sections below item description.

Homework:
Now GO TO YOUR STORES AND SEE IF YOU HAVE USED ALL OF YOUR 10 sections.. 
IF NOT.. make sure you have represented all the types of items you sell and edit as needed!

 

SHOP SECTIONS TIP: 
 

Want to know what the best name for your shop sections are or just might be? 

Just go to your store STATS and select ALL TIME VIEWS and then scroll down and take a look at what your most searched items are under KEYWORDS. 

This is a great tool That totally is worth looking at often – to know what others have typed into their search engines to find you in the past searches- (especially informative for those who have been on Etsy awhile) 

I have all my 10 sections now in place and feel pretty good about it – 
How about you. ??

ADDING PERSONALITY TO YOUR SITE BY USING BANNERS AND PROFILE PICTURES
 

EASY BANNER MAKING WEBSITE for Making Etsy Banners

check out this program I found for easy banner making.. Oh my gosh I love it.. it’s easier than the way I do it in Photoshop even.

all you need is the image you want to upload or use their blanks.. add your text and details, and know the size of your banner you want to use

First, to display correctly, your Etsy shop banner will need to be exactly 760 pixels by 100 pixels in size.

– Profile pics: 75 x 75

– Item Listing photos: 800-1000 pixels wide.

– Team logo: 170 x 100 

Make sure you save your banner image as .jpg, .png, or .gif file format.

To upload your banner, go to Your Shop > Info & Appearance. Click the Browse button to locate the file on your computer. Be sure to click the Save button at the bottom of the page.

THE MISSION of the ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY

 

ETSYVERSEBANNERGROUPspace

ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY

(A Knowledge Sharing and Networking Community)

OUR MISSION

We, the captains and leaders of the ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY, have come together to provide our service to one another and to the Etsy community.  To provide each other, our members and all Etsy stores a Knowledge,  Education and Network Sharing  Community.  Together 33 original teams who have won the ETSY FELLOWSHIP AWARD have chosen to become an advanced mass promotion and co-networking group of artists and sellers on Etsy.  By finding and meeting one another in the Etsy Fellowship Program we started to realize one grand thing we had in common, that we were the the guides at the front of a massive adventure in promotional and marketing for large groups of people and the knowledge and information we held as the higher ups, could not only help our members stores, but also one another in achieving our goals and our team’s goals.     We are Knowledge and Experience based as a group, we will strive to teach and share what we have learned on our own, and by choice have  decided to rally together to really be a tight knit  Etsy community of hard working etsians who are mostly home and small business based sellers who want to change the world we live in one craft, sale, or art share at a time.  As a group we believe in sustainability, in family values, and in the right for all people to be able to be treated with kindness  and equality as sellers on the internet.

The Participating members are all amazing people and if you’ve been invited here your work on your teams has been acknowledged and is respected… and we congratulate you! Everyone raise your right hand.. place it on your left shoulder and pat three times

Good Job EVERYONE!

I would like to Introduce you to your FIRST LEADERS of the FABULOUS SOCIETY WE HAVE CREATED.

Welcome Mary Beth!

She will be the Head of our Newsletter Department

… ok.. well maybe she’s not a medical professional, or a real PHD, but she’s been on Etsy quite a good while and with her knowledge and experience will be the Head of our Teams Education Department

(I found by being a fellow that we all have done some dynamic work with our teams, and that many people can benefit from our personal experience.. We will make how to’s for how we do all of our social media, about campaigns to assist sellers, step by steps to learn different ways to promote, help and get your members more sales… these will all be posted here in our group and the most important of them will be used in our blog to be available for all to learn from!)

Last but not least me, Jen Liput – team captain 🙂

(deadhead art alliance) and (ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY)

Consider this like team like a sailing sea ship and I’m the captain- I will be available at all times to assist and guide the captains and leaders of the team.

I personally will be starting to work on our -ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM MONTHLY CALENDAR  – TEAM EVENTS ORGANIZATION and on EDUCATION and NETWORKING – I plan so arrange a web page where all of our teams will be represented with information about who we are, what we’re about, and provide a go to place for all of the links to our team’s services… and to see what you should be teaching your team or giving them a heads up on the current events and marketing dates

We will be introducing you to team games for promotional in team fun, we will also be providing Fellowship Games… which will allow us to take what we do on our teams, we’ll bring the links here, network, share and show the best of what Etsy and Etsy Teams have to offer. Etsy Teams in general has separated the zillions of interests of Etsians all over the world, and we will bring them back together in a unity of support.

Through this team We will accept the members from future fellowship programs, who will be invited by Etsy Administration when they win new fellowships in the future to learn and teach just as we do… sharing information is a crucial part of learning, growing, and success.

– If you are a visionary who would like to help run this team like these women and men have, apply for the ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP.

We are going to be the guiding light to the Etsy teams who have won fellowships to assist in building the knowledge and support systems needed to run TEAMS on Etsy.  As teams are a reflection of the Captains style of how they run their society and Interests and Passions of thousands of People, there is no one right way to run a team, BUT, we stand to support one another by sharing of our knowledge, information and techniques to exist as well as Providing an all in one place where we can refer to MONTHLY for a calendar of events to share with our teams to keep us up to date, and in the loop of crucial information that needs to be shared with our teams members and all people who love Etsy.

There are so many great happenings that get missed just because we don’t find out about them or we find out too late.   We hope to bridge that gap.

We would like to thank our venue, Etsy.com and our Etsy administration Representative Kim Konen who has been here for us over the years give us the tools and pride to be the guides support system and friends we have become.

Not only is a team a place to meet like minded people and other Etsy buyers and sellers, but it’s a community we feel that should be built on mutual respect, with the goal to help one another succeed.

TEAM:

Definition

A group of people with a full set of complementary skills required to complete a task, job, or project.

Team members (1) operate with a high degree of interdependence, (2) share authority and responsibility for self-management, (3) are accountable for the collective performance, and (4) work toward a common goal and shared rewards(s). A team becomes more than just a collection of people when a strong sense of mutual commitment creates synergy, thus generating performance greater than the sum of the performance of its individual members.
