Casting Call for Etsy UK’s TV Advert

May 2, 2014

by nvanderbilt

Etsy.com handmade and vintage goods

An Etsy advert is coming to a television near you! Etsy’s VP of International, Nicole Vanderbilt, tells us about this exciting news and how to apply to take part. 

I am delighted to share some very big news with you: Etsy’s going to be on the telly, and we are starting right here in the UK with our very first advert!

Thanks to our all our wonderful UK sellers, the marketplace has grown immensely here in the last year. We feel we are now, more than ever, ready to broadcast the Etsy message to a much, much wider audience in the UK. The Etsy marketplace is renowned for beautiful, original work by talented craftspeople, gorgeous vintage finds, and inspiring craft supplies, and we are so excited to tell more people about all your items.

There is huge opportunity for our sellers in the UK. We are hoping to attract a high number of first time Etsy buyers — to introduce Etsy to a wider audience of UK shoppers who care about buying from real people.

Of course what makes Etsy so special is our sellers and their items, so you can imagine what the focus of our advert will be – our amazing community. It should be no surprise that the cast of our advert will indeed be our very own sellers in the UK. Etsy is nothing without its sellers. It’s the people that make Etsy.

Could it be you?

We are looking for UK-based sellers to join us to shoot the ad in central London on Wednesday, 14 May. If you would like to take part, read on!

Details

  • Shoot date: Wednesday, 14 May
  • Time on set: 7:30am – 9:00pm (times subject to change slightly)
  • Location: Central London (exact location details to follow soon)
  • Compensation: £100 for your travel expenses + additional shop/item promotion (see below).

** Please note the £100 is the only financial compensation. Unfortunately, we can’t provide additional funds if you are coming from very far away, so do take this into consideration when deciding to apply.

Ready To Apply

Remember, to apply you must be a UK resident who sells on Etsy. Please read the full set of details and requirements below.

To apply to be in the Etsy UK TV advert, share a photo of you and your craft with us on Instagram, using the hashtag #peoplemakeetsy and mentioning @etsy.

In your image caption, let us know your name and your shop name, where you live, what you sell and why it’s great.

For example, “I’m Alistir from AlistirWoodTait in Edinburgh. I found the ring that represents your love.”

Additional Information for applicants

What to Expect

We are delighted to be able to include loads of Etsy sellers and their items in this ad because you are what makes Etsy great. Due to the nature of the concept and the creative process, there are likely to be a handful of sellers featured more prominently, so not everyone who attends the shoot will have a “front and centre” place in the ad. Regardless of how much coverage you and your item get, it will most definitely be an amazing day of experiencing a professional television shoot and meeting other Etsy sellers and creative folks!

We’ve never done a TV ad in the UK before, so we can’t say how much impact your appearance will have on your sales, but we will be sending you tools to help take advantage of the exposure. We’ll be providing you with professional assets after the shoot:

  • Professional, high-res photos of you and your items on set
  • A badge for your shop which proclaims your item was in the TV ad
  • Additional promotional coverage for your shop on EtsyUK’s social media channels

Requirements

You must meet the following requirements to apply and take part in the advert.

  • You must be a full time resident of the UK with an active Etsy shop.
  • You’ll need to sign a release form allowing us to use the footage we shoot of you and your item.
  • Please arrive in the clothes and make-up you’d like to be wearing during the shoot (touch-ups allowed of course, but we won’t have a dedicated area for dressing or make-up on set).
  • The advert takes place on a London street, so be sure to dress in the regular, comfortable clothes you might wear to a weekend street market.
  • Do bring light/warm/wet weather clothes as weather mid-May in the UK can be unpredictable.
  • Do NOT wear any clothing with a visible brand
  • Avoid wearing black if possible.
  • Please bring the products you sell (if you’re selected, we’ll give you more information on what to bring)
  • Be prepared to do a lot of waiting around (unfortunately this is just sort of the way making TV and movies goes…)
  • You must apply by end of day Wednesday 7 May.

Deadline

You must post your photo by end of day Wednesday, 7 May to be considered. We’ll send word to our lucky TV advert sellers next week with more details!

Questions

If you have any questions, please join us in the UK team.

    What will the concept of the advert will be? Will you be just showing people holding their items? I can't make it, but I hope it will be a great success! Etsy UK does need advertising on a national scale.

  • TinTeddy

    Deborah from TinTeddy said 5 years ago

    "Please bring the products you sell" Does this mean that digital product sellers are not able to take part? We are already very poorly represented on the front page etc, so it would be nice if we could join in with this amazing opportunity.

  • BoomBoomBabyBoutique

    BoomBoomBabyBoutique from BoomBoomBabyBoutique said 5 years ago

    I would love to but sadly Etsys new rules mean that people who manufacture items can now sell on Etsy, as long as they are mentioned in the process it apparently counts as hand made. Etsy was so good when it was individuals or small businesses who made their items ethically. If Etsy is advertised here it's just going to attract more manufacturers who will copy our designs and as they are "hand made" in a factory will be allowed. This is one step further towards becoming Ebay

  • mazedasastoat

    mazedasastoat from mazedasastoat said 5 years ago

    Boo Etsy! Yet another opportunity ONLY offered to people willing & able to use other sites. I can't afford a smartphone for Instagram, why am I denied the chance to take part simply because I'm poor? And £100 travel expenses for a potential 14 hour day pretty much rules out anyone who isn't either local or rich enough NOT to have to rely on their Etsy income. I don't have a TV, so will never get to see the ad, but it smacks of exploiting your fee-payers rather than spending your company profit in order to drum up business. As a previous poster pointed out, it's one more step along the road to "eBayfication".

  • seacraft

    Jeanette from Seacraft said 5 years ago

    sounds interesting and some promotion in the UK is important - not many people that I meet in the UK have heard of Etsy . Some of you have mentioned eBayification. I do hope that Etsy , which I love , isn't going to get like Ebay which I have no time for anymore. Ebay even charge 10% commission on the postage costs now. Unfortunately I cannot come all the way down to London from rural Perthshire in Scotland as it would be a very expensive trip with overnight accommodation needed both on the previous day and the day of the shoot. Also I am not very photogenic !!! But have a great day all of you that do make it to the photoshoot.

  • thewildyouth

    Debbie-Lou from thetinyteaparty said 5 years ago

    I'm so pleased Etsy is finally getting the promotion it needs here in the UK! The amount of blank looks I receive when I tell people I run an Etsy shop as a full time job is incredible. So it will be wonderful to bring the joy of buying handmade to people who wouldn't necessarily have ever considered it before. :) I'd have loved to have applied but sadly can't drive and London's a little too far for me to be traveling, especially with overnight accommodation costs too. Good luck to everyone who does apply though! I'm sure you will all do us proud!

  • rubyfoot

    Rubyfoot from Rubyfoot said 5 years ago

  • tobyhardman

    Toby Hardman from WickedBoxcar said 5 years ago

    This is just what Etsy needs in the UK. We moved from the US with our shop last year and have been surprised by the lower profile Etsy has here... this should go someway to changing that and opening up UK customers to Etsy's new approach to buying products built with soul. WELL DONE :)

    This is fab but I won't be able to enter, I would have to bring my toddler twins and they would not enjoy the waiting around bless them. This is super exciting for all sellers in the UK though as Etsy just isn't very well known here, and this will provide much needed exposure which should benefit all of us! :)

    I am so pleased that finally Etsy shops will get some recognition. I have just been reading through all the comments and never realised there were so many shops. Yet when I talk to people they have never heard of Etsy. I am thrilled about this. Sadly, I will not be applying as for me it is just too short notice to arrange things. I wish everyone that applies the very best. Good luck.

  • cheerfulvicky

    Lianne from MandalaYarn said 5 years ago

    YaY!!! I'm in :) Thankyou Etsy, this is fabulous news Thanks also for introducing me to instagram, I've never known what all the fuss was about but I installed it purely to apply for this and now I'm addicted hahaha. I'd better finish my assignments now though, I finish uni the day before the shoot so the timing is pretty perfect, but i've lost most of the weekend to instagram already and I still have about 10,000 words to write eeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeeep!!!!!

  • Addttoo

    Deborah Wraith from Addttoo said 5 years ago

    A big thank you to Etsy for the kick up the rear I needed to start using Instagram! (I also thank my son for guiding me). It would be wonderful to be able to showcase my brand and designs on your Etsy advert, although something hugely positive has already transpired. Thank you!

  • CoutureHatsbyBeth

    Beth Hirst from CoutureHatsbyBeth said 5 years ago

    Quick question - I have noticed that people are posting multiple pictures/same pictures over and over Is it worth posting more or will you be looking at each business that posts regardless of number of posts? Don't want to spam the hashtag and annoy people by doing multiple posts It is a create opportunity and would love to be involved, I have my fingers crossed

  • NatalieBreezeDesign

    Natalie Breeze from NatalieBreezeDesign said 5 years ago

    Can't get travel from Leeds that will arrive before 7.30am in the morning without getting to London the day before and I have nowhere to stay, so seems Southerners will benefit more than anyone as ever! Oh well, the north might get some opportunities too one day :) I look forward to seeing it when it is done though, Etsy could do with some advertising in the UK. x

I love the worldwide reach of Etsy it has opened up an incredible outlet for me personally but, incredible innovative ideas and vintage sources are being left on the shelf due to rising duties and International postage. I try to source and encourage UK Etsy sellers whenever I can... but advertizing will bring in the buyers and I am over the moon to hear this news Xx Sally

    ......Just wondering if anybody knows if the lucky UK shops that are selected have to dress their own market stall to represent their individual Etsy shop (bring a back drop/ display props and lots of products)? ...or just turn up to the shoot with one or two products? ...Be great to hear soon so I can either switch off and wish everybody else lots of luck, or go into hyper mode!!**
