It has been to my credit to recently join this lovely group of ladies on Etsy! I’ve joined loads of sales teams on Etsy over the course of my Etsy career, but very few hit the spot for me.  In fact, if I’m honest, I’ve seen only apathy from more than a few teams – not what one would expect from people whom you would *think* would want to sell, not sink.  Soo..when I was invited to join Buy From Women, I could only hope that this one may have a bit more kick…and yes, it DOES!

Everyone here helps each other! Team “games” are set up in such a way to not only encourage sharing other’s wares with the community, but also to share your own. And we are all encouraged not “blow our own horn” but to tweet, pin, share to Facebook, and make treasuries of each other’s wares. Helping ourselves through helping each other.  What is even more impressive is that the team leaders, Amy C. Lund (aclhandweaver), Laura (PLANETDIGS2), and Hannah Diamond (MissTeacherLady) will never fail to answer any questions and will not be condescending – as I have encountered in past from some teams.  It doesn’t matter what you sell, even this old crone with her witch-y wares, is welcome and treated with the utmost of care and respect.  The only qualification you need is to have a woman-owned business.  From thereon, you are given every opportunity and help an Etsy business – or ANY business, for that matter – could hope for.  Even those of us whom are seasoned online sellers learn invaluable tips and new ways of getting noticed with these lovely ladies!

So, this 1st of May, everyone who reads this, please re-tweet any tweets you see on Twitter with the hashtag #buyfromwomen and help all of  woman-owned business make it a success.  Not just for us, but for every woman-owned business all over the World.
