Have you ever created an Etsy Treasury?
A Etsy Treasury always includes 16 items from any Etsy store. It often includes themes such as a color theme or a subject theme. I've created two so far. The first one I chose items that reminded me of all things Waldorf. You can see it here. I called it "My Waldorf World."
After I created it, I emailed each person that I featured to let them know about the treasury. The sellers usually reply either personally through Etsy or below the treasury. It's a wonderful way to get to know other stores, to build community and to let them know about you.
My 2nd treasury was inspired by Echinacea Coneflowers. You can take a look here. I did add my item because it showed up during my search but I think in the future I won't include any of my items. I just felt a bit silly including myself.
Creating a treasury can build brand awareness. They can help other sellers get noticed. I share mine on Facebook and I stumble them. Etsy has a few options for sharing your Treasury after it's been created. Etsy's front page of their site includes a treasury which changes often. This means that one day your treasury could be there.
And it's just plain fun to choose 16 items of pure eye candy. If you have an Etsy account you can click here to build your own treasury.
This week feel free to share your Etsy shoppe or an Etsy Treasury that you have made. Do you have a favorite treasury that you've across? Have you been included in a treasury?
