Well as you know a new team has started on ETSY, 'Crafty Folk' . Originally started after the UK site FOLKSY made it's true feelings about 'assembled' goods known. Lots of shops have now moved to the 'other side' and have collected together. Everyone is welcome though. As well as a daily listing club we have been coming up with new ideas although mostly stolen from other teams! The latest is a BNR . It's well under way and we have had 5 sales in the first few hours.
A BNR has a starting line up in a treasury format. If you'd like to buy from one of the shops , go ahead and then post the transaction link making sure to call out the shops name in CAPITALS. Your ETSY shop then gets that persons spot. You get to stay in the treasury until you are bought out. Anyone is welcome to play.
Now if you become an addict and you may well,there's a few teams that have fantastic BNR's or BNS's (Buy and Stay). They are a great way to promote your shop and usually lead to a sale. I can recommend http://www.etsy.com/teams/7574/shoppers-paradise-bnr-team. They're a friendly lot and such a global team there's always someone hanging around for chatting.
If you haven't tried a BNR/BNS then yet it's time to have a whirl.
