About this team:
LGC boasts that they are here to help each other to succeed. The easiest way to be a team member and learn about Etsy is to hit the floor running and jump right in! We were all new to Etsy at one time – having someone or a team to show you the ropes is a great advantage. If you want to meet people, make new friends – friends that will help you succeed – then this is the place where you can be all you want to be!

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.

The Ladies and Gents Club is a 6 time winner of the Fellowship Award.    Cindyanne received the award in Q3, Q4 2014 and Q1 2015. Stacey received the award in Q3 and Q4 2014. Liz received the award in Q4 2014. Cindyanne, Stacey, Vicky, Deb and Sue are currently awaiting Q2 enrollment for 2015. Cindyanne has brought many ideas to the team from the Fellowship. 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!

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.

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.
