ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM OF THE MONTH – OCTOBER – THE WOOD CARVERS OF ETSY

iga_170x100.18192_h659

Introducing The Wood Carvers of Etsy Team!

The Wood Carvers of Etsy Team – October Team of the Month

From it’s very beginning the purpose of Wood Carvers of Etsy was and still is to promote, enlighten, and represent the arts involving wood carving and wood sculpture. The team is a place where wood carvers from all across the globe can come together to promote their wood carved items, share ideas and tips.

The wood carver of Etsy is a team numbering in membership of 166 wood carvers, representing various types of carving from the very simplest, to some of the most complex styles of carving. Our goal is not to be one of the largest teams on Etsy, but to be one of the successful teams on Etsy.

The team works diligently on a weekly, if not daily basis to promote the shops and items from within the team. One of the most amazing things about wood carvings is that each one is unique. You may find a Santa in almost every shop of the team, but not one will be exactly the same and that is because the individual skill and personality of the wood carver comes out in each individual Carving. No two carvings will ever be the same unless they are mass-produced by a machine (which is one of the few rules we have regarding membership) it is often the wood that dictates the outcome of the finished product. The Wood Carvers of Etsy Team is all about promoting the craft of woodcarving, not mass production marketing.

iga_170x100.13448

Introducing the Integrity of Vintage Etsy Team!

Integrity of Vintage: Team of the Month September

 

Sellers of vintage on this team  have wonderfully picked items in their stores.  When you are looking for items of the best integrity, or items of high ​quality and ​lasting ​value, or ​showing the ​best characteristics ​typical of the ​person who ​created it, this team strives to bring it to you to the best of their ability.  Vintage can just be something old, or much like a ​wine of high quality that was made in a ​particular ​year, and that can be ​kept for several ​years in ​order to ​improve it.

The teams mission is that the team members take great pride in offering vintage and antique items, which (per Etsy guidelines) must be a minimum of 20 years old.

The team strives to Promote and support the team shops via social medias and on Etsy and create an open and friendly atmosphere where knowledge of vintage, antiques and maintaining a successful Etsy shop can be shared

ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM OF THE MONTH – MAY – ETSY MUD TEAM

etfsmudteammay

Introducing the Etsy Mud Team  (this is their short name) – officially they are Etsy Mud Team for makers of handmade pottery, clay sculpture, and other ceramic arts  Team URL is: www.etsy.com/teams/6382/etsy-mud-team-for-makers-of-handmade

etsymudteamlogo

This team takes working with clay to a whole new level.  I’m going to do some real sharing of their creations because I am in such awe of what their imaginations have come up with in this medium.

Cups and Mugs, Bowls, Jewelry, Sculpture, Serving Trays and Kitchen Items, Wedding Decor, Home Decor, Supplies, Pet, Garden Items and More…

etsymudteam3

//

Ceramics is one of the most ancient industries on the planet. Once humans discovered that clay could be dug up and formed into objects by first mixing with water and then firing, the industry was born.  Animal and human figurines were made from clay and other materials, then fired in kilns partially dug into the ground.  In later years tiles were manufactured, functional pottery vessels for storing water and food around 9000 or 10,000 BC and thought at that time to be responsible for the creation of glass, when overheating of kilns produced a colored glaze on the pottery.  Clay has done so much for humanity and art it is sure a medium to be respected and adored.

Follow JD Wolfe’s board Etsy Mud Team on Pinterest.

Etsy Mud Team was Founded Jun 18 2007 and is a hub for well over 1400 crafting individuals and is a Etsy Fellowship winning team.

JD Wolfe is the wonderful captain of the team and Terry Parker is the team representative who we at the Etsy Teams Fellowship Society are proud to work closely with to network and come together for multi-team events.   When the founder of the team stepped down these women are 2 of the 3 individuals that stepped forward to take over the team in 2007 .

 

Terry – “Our team is pretty successful in maintaining a core group of active members. The active participants change over time but so far others have stepped forward to take their place. I would hope we are as active as a group 3-5 years from now and that we figure out more ways to help each other promote our businesses.”

Let’s meet the Leadership!

 

JD Wolfe (Captain)

JDWolfePottery

I love JD’s profile

Three things you may not know about me: 1. My husband is a childhood friend. We first met when we were 15 and reconnected and married in our thirties.  He is a classically trained chef, and a big part of my life is helping him with his BBQ sauce business (Howling Wolf BBQ). http://etsy.com/shop/howlingwolfsauces 2. I used to live in a 100 year old concrete farm silo, converted into a 3 story cabin, with no running water. Living a pared down simple life really adds perspective to everything. 3. I have a passion for mid century vintage and Scandinavian design. I get a huge thrill from the hunt for forgotten treasures. I remember going to farm auctions with my Dad as a kid, and that really was the spark that started it for me. I now sell some of my finds in my vintage shop http://FaithandFranny.etsy.com ——————————————————————————————- More info about my work; I’ve been a potter for almost 20 years now, and knew the first time I tried it, that it is what I wanted to do with my life. I worked as a production potter for a large company for a year after college, and then opened my own studio/gallery near Madison, WI and operated that for almost 15 years until I started my family. I now sell my work primarily online and love sharing my work with everyone around the world. http://instagram.com/jdwolfepottery http://pinterest.com/jdwolfepottery http://jdwolfepottery.blogspot.com http://facebook.com/jdwolfepottery http://twitter.com/jdwolfepottery il_170x135.289163328 https://www.etsy.com/listing/86913072/made-to-order-nesting-cloud-plates-white?ref=shop_home_active_11   etsymudteamjd

The problem is how to remain an artist once we grow up.” -Pablo Picasso  

We look forward to meeting you!

All leaders of the Ladies and Gents Club are cross-trained to be able to step up at any given time to host an event, start a discussion thread or solve problems. The leaders understand that if you put in the work, it will happen. Remember to keep things in perspective – if it won’t be important in a month or a year do not to let it get to you. LGC leadership holds a weekly Skype conference to discuss hot topics and plan upcoming events.

*
One of the main events the Ladies and Gents Club is sponsoring this year is a BRIDAL EXPO in June. This will allow the team to showcase our products specifically for Etsy customers searching for wedding and bridal items. Since June is the most popular time of the year for weddings and bridal showers we want a central location to meet those demands.  Be sure to watch for more information as the time draws near.

She shares what she has learned on our discussion page and is always updating current topics. As a direct result of sharing what the leaders have learned through the Fellowship, LGC has active pages on Facebook, Twitter and Pinterest and has a strong presence in Etsyverse and the Fellowship Teams Page. Many of our discussion threads stem from conversations and blogs on the Captains Quarters Team – Shop Critiques and Tags to name a few.

LGC has promotional threads on the Team discussions page.

A few of the popular games are the ABC GAME where you post an item from your shop that corresponds with the letters of the alphabet. The FOLLOW THE LEADER GAME is a fun one where you post something from your shop that matches the color of the item before you.    A few other popular threads are Post 2 Fave 5 and the Bragging Board that features team members that got caught doing something fantastic like being featured on the Etsy Trending Pages, in a blog or magazine article. LGC strongly believes in acknowledging every achievement for its team members. A popular treasury promo is FRIENDS R US where 8 current members’ shops and 8 potential members are featured. This is a great promo activity to let the community know what LGC is all about and give them a taste of the hospitality the Ladies and Gents Club has to offer. LGC has a mandatory one treasury per month, per member rule.

LGC is the known for the NAME THAT TUNE GAME.    The game is played during the weekly BNR.   Liz sends out a few lyrics from a song and waits for someone in the gallery to give the correct answer. One point is awarded for the correct title of the song and one point is awarded for the correct artist. In the event there is more than one artist famous for the particular song it is at the discretion of the Maestro to decide on the winner. No purchase is necessary to participate in the game and it is ok to Google your response. At the end of the night all winners are entered into a drawing by random.org for a free spot on a future BNR board.

One of the Team’s favorite blitz promos is the HEART ATTACK!  LGC has a HEART ATTACK once a month to promote the shops’ new items and brings the team together for 12 hours of heart-ing, fun and fellowship. The ultimate result of the HEART ATTACK is the CPR that comes afterward – CUSTOMER PURCHASE REQUESTS! You must be a member of the team to participate in the HEART ATTACK. Come join the fun and set your stats on fire!

The LGC Team Slogan is:
“When you succeed, we succeed and when we succeed, you succeed!

I1wMd_UOMdCjw70TH79CCmmIzhM7lF9OeTWO2GCJ3TUtAt-SqPjCswGkxOtQ7SAefY30f6AX3sPn_0aqviuwNCuooU-Hd5qsRHgK1k6OcWp68hqz3-OrK4fl4lfIInI4lM258wDnN6uy71InqUZb1VGktiSMzhvKPckGb4GaIgb4JuwbJNIQfK1Z5fJwKB27CnOKf8ie5q-63KTkEujcnuwZVp

The dream for the Ladies and Gents Club is to increase their membership and to help each other succeed, to be part of the new and exciting changes at Etsy and continue to grow at a steady pace with active members. LGC will remain a team that helps members both new and established, find the dream they were hoping for when they opened their Etsy shop.

Advice to other team Captains:
Be sure to acknowledge everyone for what they do, there is no deed or accomplishment too small for recognition.

Thank you for all you do!

Big Etsy Blitz began in 2012 as the Etsy Contest Team.  In 2014 it was given whole hearted to new Team Captain Alura and now has over 5,500 members! The purpose of this team is to promote teammates! Their name says it all, blitzing is the game! Big Etsy Blitz is a promo team, they do Heart Blitzes, View-a-thons, Post 2 Get 10, Fave Bomb the shop above, etc.

etfsetsyblitz6We are an active team, it’s all about playing games! We do blitzes every other week, Post 2 Heart

10, fave bomb the shop above you, view-a-thons, Treasuries and all sorts of games! Blitzing is easy to do and

easy for teammates to participate in. The purpose of the blitz is to raise stats, get views and

likes!

This team is SPECIALLY for all of us who love to blitz!

What’s a blitz?

A blitz is where we all love on each others shops!
Why?
Blitzes raise stats….promote camaraderie…sometimes even nets us a random sale!

In order to participate in the blitzes, you must be a member! We plan to continue to use blitzes

to promote our members! www.etsy.com/teams/12328/big-etsy-blitz

I’m hoping to get the team on to google plus, I love doing little interviews on shops which we can do live on google plus, and those video’s also save to youtube.

That is a future plan for the team. Since our members are world wide, we don’t have any local happenings. Anyhow all are welcome and we hope to see some new members jump on board the Blitz train!!!

Here’s How it Works!

2014 FELLOWSHIP WINNING TEAM:

-by Alura-
We won a Fellowship Award in December 2014.  We are trying to learn how to better promote our shops online through the Fellowship Program Package. I use the books received to help start threads that may interest the members.

The Buzzing Communities book is my favorite!

” As an award winning captain of a large team, my advice to other captains and leaders is to always expect the unexpected! People have often exceded my expectations! “

I love it when that happens!!

etfsetsyblitz4

Artist Supporting other Artists!

We’ve found that as a big team… games are great way to get to know your teammates!

ETSY TEAMS FELLOWSHIP SOCIETY TEAM OF THE MONTH – February – Australian Wandarrah

etfsaustralianwandaaah

Introducing our FEBRUARY Fellowship Society honored TEAM OF THE MONTH!

Australian Wandarrah
https://www.etsy.com/au/teams/8520/australian-wandarrah

//

Australian Wandarrah is a moderated team open to both buyers and sellers living in Austrailia and New Zealand. A large team of over 1,600 members, treating each other with respect and compassion is the most important guideline of this spirited team.

etfsaustralian10
The word Wandarrah is an aboriginal word meaning Meeting Place. Members support each other through thick and thin on this team. The team has also raised funds for the NSW Wildfires in 2013, and for the Street Swags in 2014. In 2014 they hosted regional meet-ups! Not a small task with the team covering 2 countries.

With such a large team, 1,675 members, you know they must have some amazing Leaders!

etfsaustrlian14

The Captain of the team is Cat. Her shop, Must Have Been The Cat, can be seen here:

https://www.etsy.com/shop/MustHaveBeenTheCat

etfsaustraliancat
Cat is a giving and kind soul who works hard to keep the team running smoothly.

She’s told us that she created the team because at that time there was nothing available for Australians on Etsy.  She wanted it to be a supportive community for both buyers and sellers in Australia and is very proud and humbled by the amazing community that has evolved.

We provide a huge range of activities including chat, games, promo and educational resources. Everyone is kind and supportive …its like one very large functional family.

She has many Etsy shops and is always thinking up new ideas

www.MustHaveBeenTheDog.etsy.com

When we asked her what her goals for the team in the future this is what she said

“In 5 years I hope that our team is still going strong and continuing to offer the variety of things we do today. I hope it will have helped our team members make their shops the success they want them to be and continues to support them and give them a sense of belonging.”

We love hearing that long term dedication she has to support this group!

That is part of being a captain that many people don’t understand, it’s a long term commitment for many of us and that takes a lot of time and volunteer hours.

Her second in command is Kelly.

Kelly runs the team’s challenge treasury and is charged with maintaining the team’s curated page. Kelly’s shop can be visited by clicking the link: https://www.etsy.com/shop/ColourscapeStudios

We received the Selling Event Fellowship 3rd quarter of 2014 (Aug.-Oct.)  We accomplished and held our first team selling event on Oct. 25th, 2014. 

We’ve learned so much and especially to Remember that a team is only as strong as it’s members.  Delegate tasks.  The more involvement you have the more people will participate.  It’s infectious.

 Bath and Body

In November we started playing games to increase views in our shop. 

The first one we love is a favorite game

Each team member can post one link to an item over the course of 1-3 days depending on participation level.  You must click on every single persons link and keep the browser window open for a minimum of 10 seconds.  Giving them a “view”. 

 We also play games where we post a pin from pinterest, a tweet link, facebook post, etc.  Click on link to open it, then like or share, repin, or retweet.  Then click to follow through to etsy also giving the item a view from that particulair social media site.

Many of our team members have a dream of building up to full-time businesses while for others its more of a hobby or extra source of income.  Right now my dream for the team is to build a strong local network of etsy shop owners that can support and learn from each other.  Possibly also in the future, it would be nice to have a Monthly Market to sell our arts and crafts locally.

 

 Favorite Quote

One from the RINGGOLD ETSY TEAM leadership to You

Keep moving forward even when team participation is down.  Things cycle and you may have many ups and downs, people come and go, but don’t give up.  It takes time to build a strong team with solid committed members.
