Etsy Teams are groups run by sellers, for sellers, to provide support to one another. Each group comes together for different reasons—some connect members who live in the same area; others sell items in similar categories; and some groups are created around a common interest; like woodworking, photography, or marketing.

Great information when we get it
I do love this podcast. I just wish it was more consistent. Sometimes there are two posts in a month and then there are times we go months with nothing. I’ve been selling on Etsy for three years and love the information we get, but some consistency would be a huge improvement.
I’m gearing up for opening an Etsy shop and your podcasts have been so informative! Thanks for orchestrating these podcasts and the sharing the great information you present.
This is terrific inside know how for any Etsy seller, new or experienced shop owners...you can stumble around and figure things out by yourself, or listen here and step up your shop skills pronto... gratitude!
