Team Tip: Give Thanks!

Dec 1, 2008

by sarawearsskirts handmade and vintage goods

Here at Etsy, we know working as a Team is no simple task, and we think it’s important to acknowledge your peers’ hard work. Letting people you collaborate with know they’re appreciated goes a long way. On that note, this week we wanted to take a moment to give a big thanks to the many, many Etsy Team leaders and Etsy Team members who make the Teams program as great as it is.

Thank you to the ever patient, generous, hard-working Etsy Team leaders. We know running a successful Etsy Team can be an unwieldy, occasionally confusing and sometimes thankless task, but we think Team leaders are amazing. They organize, promote, and inspire the Etsy Teams and the creative projects that Teams accomplish, in addition to running their shops (and balancing the rest of their busy lives!). Thank you, thank you, Etsy Teams Superstars, for your dedication, enthusiasm and perseverance!

A giant thank you, also, to all members of the Etsy Teams. With almost twenty thousand (and counting!) Etsy buyers and sellers taking the time to promote Etsy and your shops, you’re an important, giant part of getting the word out about Etsy as a marketplace. We love to see you network, meet up locally, make connections virtually all around the world and come together as a strong facet of the Etsy community.

As the holiday shopping season has everyone super busy this time of year, take a moment to let your Teammates and Team leaders know how much you appreciate all their hard work. To show your thanks and support for the Etsy Teams, search “team” to find hundreds of thousands of items made by Etsy Team members.

For more Team Tips, please check the Teams Resource page.  Also, we discuss the Team Tips, news and ideas in the Etsy Teams email list! Keep up the great work, Etsy Teams!

    A VERY BIG thank you goes out to the members of the Needle Felters Etsy Street Team= NFEST and my fearless leader, Gina of RosethistleArtWorks!!!! Not only is this a team of incredible talent but it is more of a group of like-minded people, etsy sellers and flickr comrades who not only share a common bond for all things fiber but who also understand the importance of frienship and support. Many days I have been down or many of us artists and crafters are...and a simple hello or comment on ones work etc. can really give me that much needed boost! With these ladies I never feel completely alone and know without a doubt that each and every one of NFEST's members would be there in a second if I ever needed anything! What more can one ask for? I love you all and continue to be in complete awe of all of your talent!
