Etsy Sellers Unite for Etsy Day — Join in!

UPDATE: Happy Etsy Day! #etsyday is trending number one on Twitter according to Twazzup!
ps
Remember, it’s “Etsy” not “Esty,” sillies!

The Etsy Forums have united and declared Friday, April 24th, 2009, Etsy Day! Hurrah! We here at Etsy love you for working together to create a really exciting opportunity for us all.  We will be reporting the guerilla marketing on Friday and we challenge YOU, buyer, seller or fan, to shout “Etsy!” from the rooftops. Get the Etsy name out there in the brightest, sparkly-est, boldest way you can think of!  Make sure to record your efforts with video or photos (if you upload photos to flickr, making sure to tag them “Etsy Day 2009”). We’ll be highlighting the funniest, weirdest, most attention grabbing efforts here on Etsy’s Blog and on our social networks (like our Facebook page and Twitter), and we’ll make sure to link back to you. 

To learn more about Etsy Day, check out the latest forum post by Shugirl here.

Here are some ideas from the Etsy Admin:

  1. If you get people to sign up for Etsy on Friday make sure they mention your Etsy username in the Referrer Username box at sign up!  If we see a user who really rocks this, we’ll automatically include you in our Etsy Day follow up post. So if you print out flyers, get on the news, or get Ashton Kutcher to tweet about Etsy, make sure you get your username in there, too!
  2. Tweet your endeavors via Twitter and make sure to add the hash tag #EtsyDay.  (And send it to @aplusk. Let’s get Ashton Kutcher’s attention on Etsy Day. Ha! Mr. Most Twitter Followers.)
  3. Support a new seller on Etsy Day! Buy an item from someone with no sales (you can find them on Pounce Undiscovered), and wish them a “Happy Etsy Day” in the Message to Seller field when you check out.
  4. Print out schugirl’s Etsy sign to stick in your car window or download and print out the design Anda made for Etsy Day!
  5. Get an Etsy tattoo!
  6. Dress your family in all orange. When you get weird looks, whisper “Etsy”.
  7. One final clarification…”Etsy” is pronounced like “Betsy” with no B.

Ok, we’re getting silly now.  Let’s hear your own Etsy Day guerilla marketing ideas! Post them in the comments below.  And don’t forget to post photos of your wildest Etsy Day promotions to Flickr and tag them “Etsy Day 2009”!

The Fine Print: This promotion is being sponsored by independent Etsy shop owners, not Etsy.com. We’re just excited about it.

Etsy was my answer for almost everything! How do you spell that again" e-t-s-y.

    sounds like good times. I suggested Etsy to a lady I noticed always knits at my kids dance lessons I told her it's a totally great place to buy and sell handmade. The Etsy tatoo idea is way funny I'd love to see if anyone actually does that (permanent not temporary).

    Wearing one of my own rings while shopping the other day, the checkout girl admired it, so I told her where I sell. I was taken aback that she hadn't heard of ETSY! I gave her one of my cards & told her to check out all the other shops, too. I guess she's still at it. LOL! ^_^

    I dressed in orange, spread the word to friends and relatives (a bunch signed up, too! they loved this site!) and blogged about it here www.pirillinca-handmade.blogspot.com and on my facebook page (I uploaded a re-interpreted version of the graphic up there and tagged all my friends there!). I became a spammer! But for a good cause... ; )

    I wore etsy merchandise and plastered my car with the signs yesterday. And at my school we have writing boards in all the bathroom stalls so people don't write on the walls and I put the etsy message from the car signs on every single one!! The women's at least, lol And I made a youtube video (my very first EVER it took my like 6 hours to edit) documenting my efforts. Go Etsy!! :) http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=BqExISxg_gk

    I printed out the "did you Etsy today?" sign and taped it inside the back window of my vw bug... I parked it in a great, well exposed spot. I handed out moo cards to everyone I met...grocery clerks, shopping mall funky folks... Had a great day doing it! Etsy day was the best for me as I had an item featured on the front page and 3 featured in the gift guides section...You gotta LOVE this place!!!!!!!!! I want to share the LOVE<3

    Hi...Funny I was so excited about my etsy site I mentioned it to my G.P (Docter) during a recent visit and I believe she has been on recently madly searching for gifts!!! I know it is a little sad but I guess word gets spread around in the weirdest of ways... Happy Etsy Day...Looking forward to some creative ETSY Marketing!!! Cora

    Danielle, I loved your video!! What a great effort by everyone! I left up my sign and plan to keep it up so for those who missed it, it's not too late. Did you know there is a great video about etsy on youtube---it's kind of like a commercial---I think we should twitter this around on monday..hehehe http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=v2g31xjdfhQ
