Now that Etsy sellers have the ability to include live links to other places on Etsy in their shop announcements, public profiles and item listings, Teams have a great opportunity to promote one another from shop to shop! For example, let’s say that pheajean, aardwolf, mwmdesigns, insitudecorativearts and JenMcCleary from the Philadelphia Etsy Team decided to form a chain throughout their shops. Setting that up might work a little something like this:

They should all agree on a little blurb of information to include with the live links. For example, a good, descriptive sentence might be, “Click through the shops listed in our announcements to find all the creative work of the Philadelphia Etsy Team,” or something similar, followed by a link to the next shop on the list, with the last person linking back to the first shop.

pheajean would post: “Click through the shops listed in our announcements to find all the creative work of the Philadelphia Etsy Team – http://aardwolf.etsy.com” in her shop announcement.

Then aardwolf should include: “Click through the shops listed in our announcements to find all the creative work of the Philadelphia Etsy Team – http://mwmdesigns.etsy.com” in her shop announcement.

Pidge from mwmdesigns would post: “Click through the shops listed in our announcements to find all the creative work of the Philadelphia Etsy Team – http://insitudecorativearts.etsy.com” in her shop announcement.

insitudecorativearts should post: “Click through the shops listed in our announcements to find all the creative work of the Philadelphia Etsy Team – http://JenMcCleary.etsy.com” in her shop announcement.

And JenMcCleary would link back to the top of the list, and write: “Click through the shops listed in our announcements to find all the creative work of the Philadelphia Etsy Team – http://PheaJean.etsy.com” in her shop announcement, bringing the chain to full circle.

Promoting the work of your Team members by promoting their shops is a big way for Etsy sellers to join together to help bring each other success! Be creative about other ways you can all drive more traffic to one another’s shops. Forming a strong alliance among your fellow Teammates, encouraging each other and working as a group is what Etsy Teams are all about. We’d love to hear your suggestions in the comments below!
