Hi Everyone! It's been a little while since we had our last posting so I thought I would break the ice and give you all an update. Although I'm continuing to send messages to Etsy regarding our team status I still haven't heard back from them. I have noticed when checking the Etsy teams page that the list of teams has grown quiet a bit over the past few weeks so I imagine they have been inundated with requests.
To keep up our team spirit up I thought we could go ahead and post our badges. So below are three badges we use to post or paste on our blogs, websites, telephone polls, whatever strikes our fancy. ;-)
I also wanted to talk about our team keyword for our listings, otherwise known as a "tag" in Etsy terms. In order for others to find our shops under our team title and to help increase the benefits of promoting our shops under our team, we will need to include a team tag when listing new items. Based on the rules we need to include the word "team" along with an abbreviation of our team name. Since our name is longer than the maximum 18 characters I would like to suggest "iaeteam" for Inspiration Avenue Etsy Team. Our tag needs to be unique so including the three first letters pretty well ensures we won't be duplicating another teams tag. I also tried to keep it simple to reduce the chances for typos. We can share our thoughts about this tag by leaving a comment or if anyone thinks of an alternative we would all be comfortable using.
So here's to another update about our team and a "woohoo!" for team spirit while we paaatiently wait for our official approval.
Hope you're all having a wonderful beginning to the new week!
