Create your very own version of the Etsy TV ad

Jun 12, 2014

Your chance to get involved and customise your own version of the Etsy TV ad!

We hope you’ve seen – and enjoyed! – our new TV advert, which premiered in the UK last night (or press play on the video at the top of this post to watch again).

After working with 67 amazing UK sellers for the filming of the ad, we wanted to give EVERY Etsy seller the opportunity to get involved, so we’ve created peoplemakeetsy.com, where you can make your own customised version of the ad (we’ll add your shop details to the last 10 seconds) to download and share on your social channels or blog!

Want in? Are you a seller on Etsy with an active shop? Then you’re good to go.

Etsy UK TV ad

Here’s the how-to:

1. Head over to: peoplemakeetsy.com
2. Log in and authenticate with your Etsy Shop name and password.
3. Wait for your Etsy shop details to appear in the end frame on the right-hand side.
4. Confirm you’re happy with your bespoke video.

5. Be sure to click ’email me’ in the last step to get your ad sent to you!
6. Check your email (associated with your seller account) – you’ll receive a YouTube link so you can share from there or you can choose to download the video and host it yourself on your own blog or website.
7. Go ahead and share your customised video on your channels!

Other ways to get involved:

Our TV ad is all about the awesome sellers that make up the Etsy community. So get involved and show off your shop’s magic ingredient – you! Tell us a snippet about your story or inspirations. Show us your studio or you working on a new design. Tag with #PeopleMakeEtsy and mention @EtsyUK. We’ll be reposting our favourites!

    love the ad ! , thanks so much Just been thinking about what any new UK people will see when they venture to etsy.com for the first time. Will you be featuring those shops that took part in the ad . I think people might want to find out more about the people in the ad and their stories / what they are selling. Just thought it would be a great way to link etsy with the ad and thank those people that took part. Obvouisly we would want a link in somewhere prominant that took people to ALL the UK shops , now that would be cool

  • MirasBeadBoutique

    Mira from MirasBeadBoutique said 3 years ago

    Oh I missed it on TV, but enjoyed seeing the clip here. What a fantastic message to get out! I hope it will run again! Etsy has definitely increased their profile in the UK in recent months from what I can tell from my own shop. For the first couple of years selling pretty much most of my items went abroad, but now about 1/3 of orders are from new UK customers which is absolutely brilliant! (Not that there's anything wrong with my lovely international customers, but it's just so nice to see that Etsy is strengthening its customer base here!) ♥ Here's to British success ♥

  • littlechook

    littlechook from littlechook said 3 years ago

    Just wondering why there were so few kids sellers picked? From what I can see there were no kids fashion shops represented in the ad at all. Would have be ace to have some t shirts or dresses as it is summer time in the UK...

  • gorgeousandgreen

    Yvonne from BlackbirdHandmade said 3 years ago

    I'm noticing an increase in UK buyers too :) Well done Etsy for running the ad campaign. Hoping we all benefit in the long run. Have to admit I'm a bit disappointed to see the banner on the front page only plugging the sellers that were featured in the ad though. I hope there will be opportunities in future for Etsy in the UK to promote lots more of us. Distance, work, family commitments meant so many of us who would have loved to get involved couldn't, this time.

  • poosac

    Kim Smith from poosac said 3 years ago

    Absolutely LOVE the ad! What a gorgeous selection of unique items. Even though the footage is in slowmo I was still only able to catch a glimpse of all the gorgeous wares on offer (brilliantly done - leave the viewer wanting more!!). It's so great to see the increased exposure that Etsy is now getting in the UK. Well done to all those who were involved!

  • woolNsilk

    Karen from woolNsilk said 3 years ago

    Wow!! Well done to Etsy for doing a UK promotion. My stats of UK views has now overtaken the US views for the first time since I opened in 2012! Most of my orders last month (Though the ad has just come out!) were also UK based for a change. Excellent news for UK companies. A BIG THANK YOU to all who have made it happen.

    Missed it last night, just watched the clip, hope it's going to shown again on tv, I often find people who have never heard of etsy, so I hope this gives us new customers. This is the first I have heard about the TV advert, I know I have been ill recently and my shop has been closed hopefully next time you do one I hear about it. Margaret

  • Fired4u

    Jane Fox from Fired4U said 3 years ago

    I hadnt seen it on TV, just seen it in the email. Brilliant idea and I can't wait for my personalised one to come through :) It should help all the artists be noticed by getting the UK public to go and search!

    Being picked to be in it was the best day of my life. Not being able to get there was the worst! Beautiful advert though, you all did us proud and you even first aired it on TV on my birthday June 11th so thank you! Nice idea for us to be able to our own little version of it too, really appreciate that. Helen x

    Great advert. Trying to create my video now but it's getting timed out. I bet a few people are trying to do this. Will try a bit later. Keep up the good work all!

  • thevintagearcade

    Mary from thevintagearcade said 3 years ago

    I saw it - and it's captured the diversity of Etsy so well, it's a unique advert just as we all are on Etsy. So a great big thumbs up fro me at The Vintage Arcade at Etsy. I just wish I could have made it down to London to take part. Everyone look like real pro's. Well done all and well done ETSY. Woo-Hoo !!xx Mary

  • LizzieMade

    Lizzie from LizzieMade said 3 years ago

    The ad is great and "my" version is fab on YouTube - thanks! However, I couldn't download it which is a shame... Now when I try to link and re-make it, I can't access the site at all.

  • LizzieMade

    Lizzie from LizzieMade said 3 years ago

    OOO... all may not be lost - just used the link from this post and was able to get in to create the ad again. Hopefully I'll soon have a downloadable version of my very own!!

    Lizzie from LizzieMade said 3 years ago

    Oh dear... now it says I can't download it without buying QuickTime v7....

    Tola Laseinde from DetolaAndGeek said 3 years ago

    I have just made my own version of the Etsy UK video. I missed the actual TV Ad but am loving my own personal touch on the end of mine Thanks @EtsyUK It couldn't have come at a better time as I am rebranding & have only just changed my shop name. I hope I'll be able to download it.

  • helenpetty

    Helen Petty from RedQueenBoutique said 3 years ago

    It's a good ad and brilliant idea, thanks for allowing us to add our links for our own versions. I agree with an earlier comment in regards to a list for UK based shops. I do use Etsy as a customer and I find it very time consuming sifting through countless listings to track down those which are UK based. I do buy from over-seas as well but I'd like a similar system to eBay (where you can search UK only). A lot of people I know just don't want to buy from sellers outside of the UK and it puts them off using the site. Just a suggestion! Thanks
