The New Etsy Groups in Beta!

Etsy has just launched a new Etsy Groups feature, basically replacing the old Team Profile. Etsy Malaysia Local Team has been selected as one of the beta testers for the first phase, and hence we are one of the first few to migrate our Team Profile to the new one. Wee! :)

More features for the Etsy Groups are said to be available soon. While we wait for updates, I’ve sent invitations to the existing members so we can all migrate to the new page. You should be receiving an email from ‘Etsy Group’, asking you to go to the page to join. As of now, there are still 23 members who haven’t responded. Kindly do so ASAP.

I’m still in the middle of playing around with the basic features and haven’t got the time to check the Groups Handbook. Also, as you can see, our avatar and banner in the new page are the old ones done by me. So if anyone of you have the time to help out, I’d appreciate a fresher and prettier set. Thank you! :)

Managed to make a treasury for the team this afternoon. Wee! Check it out here!

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 THIS 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! ;)

Ship Like A Gift.

I’m always thrilled when I see photos of beautiful packaging by sellers. To me, beautiful packaging is not only something to please the eyes or to wow the receiver. It is also an important part of branding, and should reflect the identity and personality of your product and business whenever possible.

minifanfan packs her smaller items with a very professional touch. I personally think that the twine and the nicely finished hole make a really great impression.

For bigger items, she packed them with kraft paper. The consistent use of the same type of twine and hand stamped images are great branding tools.

Alex of skyejuice packs larger orders with a sturdy box with magnetic latch. This is a good idea when you need to ship several items together. The box will hold your items together and of course, very presentable! I’m not quite sure if Alex is using this on a long-term basis but for some reason, I kinda feel that this box matches her jewelry very well – stylish, sweet and juicy!

Do you pack your orders like gifts? Have you worked out packaging that reflects your brand and business? Leave a comment and share with us!

Talk about summer… Well of course, what we see all-year-round in Malaysia is that big hot sun, and perhaps some heavy rain. :)

Check out Malaysia’s all-year-round summer in this Team Treasury!
