Introducing the Etsy Christmas in July Teamfor makers from around the World. This worldwide team was established to share ideas, tips, and goals for Etsy shops to get actively involved in Christmas in July.
This team was founded to be a discussion group to let other sellers know about the Etsy community driven event held every July. The team has grown in size and in its direction so that now it is a year round team! The team has such a variety of sellers and I cannot wait to introduce you to them!
Etsy Christmas in July Team was founded June 6th 2012 and the team has 3032 members and 19 leaders. This team is one of the award winning Fellowship Teams.
Our team of the month of April is The Ladies and Gents Club. They chose this name to attract shops from the entire Etsy Community and be a place where both men and women can feel at home learning, promoting and socializing. Our team was born on April 25, 2014 and is 184 members strong and growing.
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!
Cindyanne is the Team Captain and not only runs LGC but she is teacher, mentor, and friend. She always makes time to welcome the new team members or to help out anyone with their shop. Cindyanne trains all of the leaders. If she does not know the answer to a question you can be sure she will find it for you.
Stacey helps where ever she is needed. She sends emails, invitations, runs BNR and BNS boards and creates promotion threads and treasuries. Stacey is also the Administrator of the LGC Team page for the Etsy Fellowship Society keeping the team members’ items posted and looking awesome! She posts items and treasuries on the Ladies and Gents Club Pinterest pages.
Liz is our resident DJ on the weekly Supper Club BNR. Liz has music in her soul and is the perfect hostess of the “Name That Tune” game bringing shops together for a few hours of fun and music trivia. She hosts the Shop of the Week – always looking for a shop that needs a little extra Etsy love. Liz is the LGC Facebook
Administrator is responsible for bringing in new members and posts items from team members’ shops daily. She also coordinates the Sweet 16 Treasury Promo checking to be sure shops that sign up follow through with their commitment and follow the rules.
Deb is the Membership Coordinator and is responsible for sending welcome letters to all new members. She does a wonderful job answering questions and guiding newbies in the right direction. Deb is known as the Treasury Diva! She loves to promote both old and new team members and follows up with featured shops to invite them into the Team.
Vicky is the Administrator of the LGC Team Page. Our team page is always up to date as new items are added to shops. She promotes the LGC Team on Facebook, Pinterest and Twitter. Vicky is responsible for bringing daily chats to the team – a place where everyone can talk about what is going on in their lives in general, not just Etsy.
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!
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.
The Pattern Patter Team, founded on June 7, 2011, is a team specifically for sellers of vintage and newer sewing patterns.
Currently we have 226 members, and 6 leaders. As captain, I rely on my leaders to support the team and me by taking charge of their area of expertise. Let me introduce them!
Susan from AdelebeeAnn is our social media maven. She takes care of the team’s social media accounts by posting on all of them daily.
Next, Emily from EmSewCrazy is responsible for team events. She posts the sign up threads, organizes the participants’ information, and tallies the results!
Amy from ViennasGrace is our resident Fashionista. Her knowledge of fashion terminology as well as her ability to help with dating an item is indispensable! She also is a regular contributor on the team blog with her series Sewing and the Cinema as well as other subjects.
Cloe of CloesCloset helps to manage the team page keeping it current and fresh. She also helps with tags and titles, and SEO questions from members.
Our newest leader is Barbara of FloraDoraPresents. Barbara has taken over Member Management. She reviews applications to join the team, sends new members information, and will soon be reviewing current members to make sure they are complying with requirements.
Then there is me! Mary-Beth
I write blog articles, manage the advertising for the team, write the newsletter every month, and do whatever else I can to make my team members successful.
2012 Team Spirit Award Winner!
2013 Fellowship Award Winner!
2014 Fellowship Award Winner! (x2)
Pattern Patter Team has been fortunate enough to receive three Fellowship awards, one in 2013, and two in 2014. I have had a great experience in being part of the fellowship program. I have learned so much about team management and about online communities. My favorite was the group that Kim led in 2014. I have become more self-confident and organized!
The one thing I would like to share with other sellers leaders and captains is that you can’t do everything. You need a good support team. Search out possible leaders to help make your team the very best that it can be! People like to be asked to help.
Our team deals in old, fragile, paper. Not always an easy job!
Our team mantra is Saving History One Piece at a Time.
Ebenezer Butterick 1826-1903 The man who started the paper sewing pattern industry.
