Have you heard of Etsy Teams?
No one understands more about running an Etsy shop than other Etsy sellers themselves. You have questions about the best way to ship to Australia? When to register with the HMRC? Will people really pay for shipping from the UK? Etsy sellers gather in Teams to discuss these things and more.
Etsy Teams is a community feature where sellers come together to share advice, celebrate each other’s successes, plan promotions, and organise local events. Joining a local Team can give your business a tangible boost and help you network with other designer/makers in your area.
Finding a Team can be tricky when there are so many to join. Here are a few great teams from the north of England to help narrow your search!
“If you want to meet new Etsy friends, grow your business and benefit from team promotions Team Leeds is for you! We want to help you build a stronger business through networking, education and promotion. Our awesome members are enthusiastic, helpful and friendly and together we can achieve so much!
Our members can look forward to participating in the Etsy School programme so you can learn about everything from SEO to photography, a full calendar of meet ups and parties throughout the year (great opportunities to meet fellow sellers, share ideas and collaborate), as well as pop up shops, online selling events and craft fairs so that you can reach a wider audience. We’d love you to join us!”
Membership Requirements: All team members must live in Leeds or the surrounding cities.
“Based in Greater Manchester we offer a friendly online community and face to face meet-ups. Online we participate in Etsy schools, Etsy craft party and forum threads like treasury games. We have an active Facebook page and Twitter profile where you can share tips, tricks and general chit chat.
Want to meet in person? Come along to one of our monthly coffee morning or our evening drinks to meet other local crafters in the area. We also hold community events and pop up markets. Can’t wait to meet you!”
Membership Requirements: Anyone who is in the Greater Manchester (or commutable) area.
Mersey Etsy Team
“We are a small and relatively quiet team but we offer valuable information about local events, craft fairs and so on. We also love sharing good advice from more experienced sellers and growing our local network.”
