Craft, damn you craft! I can't see you making jewelry!!
No, not that kind of boot camp. I'm talking about Etsy's Holiday Bootcamp. That's right, Etsy is going to help their sellers get into shape and so we can take on the big bad holiday season with skill.
This week's assignment: Sign the pledge, vote for our cheerleader and write a mission statement.
I, inkstrand, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I've learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!
and le Mission statement...
To create more diverse items and designs that will excite my new and old customers this holiday season, while still maintaining my theme of well-made, yet affordable, vintage-inspired pieces.
So far so good and I can't wait to do the next steps.
Interested? Join the fun, simply visit this link to sign up. Each Thursday they send out tips, homework assignments, etc to make sure you're ready for epic Holiday sales.
And on a slightly unrelated note, Moo is finally offering their StickerBooks in the US! Much like their business cards, you can pick a separate image for each one, which means endless options. Endless!!! (Well...it is limited to the number of stickers you purchase.)
Well...that's all for now. Happy crafting!
