Etsy in the Press: Dog Days

Bonjour! (I just saw Julie & Julia, so read this entire email in your best Julia Child voice, if you please!) Julia Child was a force to be reckoned with — she threw herself completely into French cooking, not letting the boundaries of society's expectations slow her down. Let's invoke the late Mrs. Child's joie de vivre and throw ourselves into our work!

.Get Involved
I was chatting with an Etsy seller this weekend, and she said her shop was going quite well. I asked her, "What would your best piece of advice be?" "Get involved!" she replied. This seller runs promotions in the Forums, loves making Treasuries and knows Etsy like the back of her hand! She chats with her Etsy friends on a regular basis. They give each other ideas, critiques and support. Get out there and make connections, you never know what you might learn or whom you might meet!

.Get to Know Your Opportunities
Want to be seen in our Weekend Deals Etsy Finds newsletter? Each Weekend Deals email carries a theme; the shop promotions might all have to do with a certain category, season, or type of promotion (such as Buy One, Get One). All of the upcoming themes can be found in the Promotions section of the Forums by searching "weekend deals." What are you waiting for? Click here to check out the latest Weekend Deals Forum posts!

.Share the Love
Believe in karma? Why not support a brand new seller with a sneak attack! What is a Sneak Attack? Phippsart, the Etsy seller behind the project explains, "It's a way to support other independent artisans. Three days a week at an appointed time, a shop with few or no sales is announced on HandmadeMovement.com. As many people as possible then buy items from that shop, resulting in a frenzy of surprise business!" Find out how to join in and the history behind the project in this blog post.

I hope I gave you some delicious food for thought! As always, I'd love to hear your tips! Email or convo me anytime.

Bon Appétit,
