I just wanted to give a little shout out to the various street teams I belong to at Etsy. If you’re an Etsy seller and considering joining a team, I highly recommend it. I know it has helped with my sales, but more than that is the educational and emotional support, cross promotions, and even group discounts that go a long way to making this whole online commerce thing doable and fun.
First off is Etsy for Animals. A group of sellers dedicated to helping animals and who donate individually or collectively to animal charities. I give 10% of my sales to the charity of the month at http://www.etsyforanimals.com/
Next, is the California Crafter’s CLub of Etsy. It’s a team made up of artists ans crafters who live in California. http://cccoe.socalblog.org/
And last is actually the first team I joined. A wonderful group of crafters who make items for babies and kids. I’ve bought some really cool stuff for my girls from EtsyKids sellers. http://www.etsykids.com/
You can search for items from any of these groups at Etsy by using the tags: EFA, CCCOE, or Etsykids.
