TAGT team began in 2010, when the Etsy Treasury system was alive and well. Our mission was to bring much-needed exposure to shops that otherwise would never be seen on what was once, Etsy’s Front Page. The same shops were always being featured over and over on the Front Page, and we decided to use the Treasury to help the rest of Etsians have a chance at being discovered.
We work hard to make our treasuries stand out in the crowd, by choosing well photographed items, interesting and entertaining titles and themes, and great color combinations.
Not only do we make a lot of treasuries, but we teach our members how to improve their own shops, clean up their photos and staging of items, SEO, tagging, prices, etc. We are really like a family. Most of our members have been on the team at least 4 years.
I ,Leanna am the Team Captain, and my leaders both live in my same state. We broke off from another team, because we knew the treasury was going to be better for exposure, and the other team didn’t share our views. My sister is one of the other leaders, and owner of AntlerPantryk, and SewcialGraces. Kathy, a good friend is the remaining leader, and owner of Readesign, TravelingGypsies, WithAllMyArt, and DixieVintageShoppe. These ladies are a great help to me!
We would love to see the Treasury have more prominence on Etsy again, because it is really hard to be seen here now, but even if that doesn’t happen, TAGT Team will continue to help other Etsians get a little of the limelight!
We have a new board on Pinterest, which also helps Etsy shops get some exposure. It is here: www.pinterest.com/tagtteam/gift-guides/
The team is a community of handmade artists , upcyclers, vintage and supply shops from all over the world that enjoy coming together making friends, having a good time and of course promoting one another.
Keep It Simple Team is a small monitored team / family, where ALL of the shops support each other by playing the Favathon at least 5 days per week to get our items out to the largest number of all of our shop’s Followers. It is the only team I know with 100% participation at least 5 days per week or more.
Our focus is to support each other and to get our items sold by increasing the Followers of the individual shops so that when the items are favored they go to the most Activity Feeds of our Followers to be seen. We have a lot of games we can play.
The Memphis Melange Team – November Team of the Month
The Memphis Melange Etsy Team is a group of talented Mid-South Makers and our Fans banding together for encouragement, inspiration, & support. Membership is open to Etsyians in the Memphis, North Mississippi, and West Memphis, Arkansas areas.
The team does a lot of education and usually kickoff the year with an Indie Handmade Biz in A Day seminar where we walk newbies through what they need to launch a handmade brand and online shop.
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
****Recipient of Etsy Team Spirit Award 2012****
****Recipient of Etsy Team Fellowship Award 2014****
The team members began by participating in an annual social media month (which has evolved into an “8 weeks of promotion”,) friendly competition in a twice-yearly listing blitz, annual SEO shop tune-ups and maintain team Pinterest boards and a Tumblr blog.
Everyone contributes to the team’s comprehensive data base for researching and dating vintage and antique items.
One of the team’s most popular discussion threads is their “Help!” thread. Here team members can seek advice on all things related to running a vintage shop on Etsy, including but not limited to customer service, shipping, dating and identifying items, pricing, photography and SEO.
The team has a lot of gardeners and cooks and have discussion threads where they share gardening triumphs and tragedies and favorite recipes.
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.
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.
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!
The Captain of the team is Cat. Her shop, Must Have Been The Cat, can be seen here:
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.
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.
