REMINDER: Make sure to tag at least one of your items with team tag ‘team etsymalaysia’ so team members and other potential buyers can find you easily. Also, remember that next month we are celebrating Hari Merdeka, and Etsy admin has taken note on this. So who knows, Malaysian-themed treasury *might* just hit the front page more! So start making treasuries for the team now! ;)

araleling has created a lovely treasury for some of us the Malaysian Etsians! :)

Check it out and spread some love here!

As mentioned, a Treasury East list doesn’t expire, and there is no limitation on how many list one can create. Start creating lists for your favourite sellers, favourite items, and of course for fellow members. Monitor it to see if any items have been sold, and quickly replace it. Who knows, your list might be chosen to go on the front page! ;)

Discount Marketing for Your Etsy Shop

As some of you may have already noticed, I have setup a new group for Etsy Malaysia Local Team on Myzerr.com. I’d like to share how the site works and why I am endorsing this site.

This site works like Facebook and connects businesses (Etsy shop owners) and buyers through the sharing of discount coupons, AND it is absolutely FREE to use. Our Myzerr group is similar to our Team’s FB fan page, within this Myzerr group, all Team members can create and share their store coupons either with team members only, or make them available to the public. This way, only those whom the deals are intended to have access to the deals. Here are some of the benefits of having a Team group on Myzerr:
1. With our Team power, we can approach other (online or offline) businesses on Myzerr and ask for discounts just for the Team. Imagine us getting exclusive deals from craft shops like Art Friend, Multifilla and major supplies shops on Etsy! Of course we will also have access to deals from other businesses like restaurants and photo studios.
2. The application is very similar to Facebook so the site does most things that FB can do. We can also use Myzerr as a directory to list our Etsy shops.
3. We can invite all Malaysian Etsians to set up their individual Etsy shop pages on Myzerr and then join our Team page there so we have a pool of Etsy shops offering discounts! Why discounts you may ask – because buyers love it and we pay nothing for the promotion until our discount marketing works, and you can tell it works when someone uses your coupon.
4. When it comes to online shops, DISCOUNT marketing works quicker and better than banner ads or blog features. What’s more, if a user thinks your coupon rocks, they can easily share it with their friends on Facebook, Twitter and other social networks, all with just a click of a button.
5. You don’t have to worry about giving away too many coupons and loosing money because you can set expiry date and cancel/edit/limit the coupon distribution anytime.
6. Once a coupon is created, it can be instantly published to your FB, Twitter, Myspace and other social networks.
7. There are reporting tools to help you measure the success of your coupon promotions so you can fiddle with different kinds of deals to see what works best for you.

I absolutely think Myzerr is a great discount marketing platform for all kinds of online/offline businesses and it’ll take off just like Facebook. To make this happen, I am happy to manage all the Team’s activities on Myzerr and have group sales or request for exclusive deals for the team.

I will be sending out invitations to all of our members and I hope that you take 5 minutes to setup your Etsy shop AND also join our group there. Please visit the site www.Myzerr.com for more information and spread the word!

P/S: Myzerr also serves brick & mortar businesses like restaurants, travel providers, beauty & spa, automotive, retailers, activity & leisure operators, professional services, home service providers etc, so tell your friends about this FREE marketing opportunity.

Team spotlight: Dust of Enchantment

To kick start our very first team spotlight features, we have Dust of Enchantment here with us today.

Who are you and what do you sell?
My name is Tracy Goh a.k.a Dust of Enchantment. I have a master’s degree in Business but my dream job is to become a full-time artist. I started drawing and making things at a very young age. I am completely self-taught and love expressing my art in 3D form (not digital) so I sculpt and assemble a wide variety of things in mixed media. I sell very different things, ranging from classic tattoo necklaces and things made of clay, to wearable micro mini origami and Japanese washi paper doll tutorials.

Which part of Malaysia are you from?
Born and bred in Petaling Jaya, Selangor, Malaysia.

What are your inspirations and muses?
People and things around me, the Internet, works of other great artists…in fact, creative ideas keep popping up out of nowhere, even when I sleep!

Tell us a little about what makes you, you. Your other hobbies, day job, anything that makes you tick!
Being a versatile and adaptive water sign, I am able to take elements from all over the place and make them work as one. I also enjoy making fine art sculptures and my non-artistic hobbies are traveling, cooking and yoga. My other job is being a marketing professional.

What are you most proud of in your crafting / art life?
Being the only artist in the family, I was taught to think of art as a pastime for children, not a career for grownups. Despite the lack of support from my family at the beginning, I have somewhat proven myself with my Etsy sales and I know my mom is proud of it :D

What do you like best about the crafting world?
Artists who are willing to share and inspire each other…and that almost everyone’s studio is as messy as mine!

Where can we get more goodies from you?
My Etsy Shop! Dust of Enchantment

And there you have it, a little bit about Tracy. Aren’t those old school tattoo necklaces fantastic? One day I will have one of those in my hands!

Would you like to be part of the team spotlight? Please send me (Little Waltz) a conversation on Etsy and I will send you more details.
