The holiday shopping season has always been a busy time of year for my Etsy shop. Every year my sales triple during the holiday shopping season.
To get ready for the holiday shopping season, Danielle over on Etsy has put together the Etsy Holiday Boot Camp.
Each Thursday, in the Etsy Success newsletters, I’ll send out a link to relevant Etsy Blog posts, Etsy forum threads, words of wisdom from other boot campers, downloadable checklists and helpful resources. I’ll start a weekly forum thread, where I’ll ask you all to check in and let me (and the other campers) know how you’re doing, what you need help with, and what steps you’ve taken that week. Having someone, or a group of someones, accountable for your success each week will hopefully keep us all plowing through the holiday madness.
Be sure to tweet about the boot camp and include #etsyholidaybootcamp in your tweets!
I will be covering topics and posting articles related to what is covered in the boot camp each week!
I, Timothy Adam, pledge to participate in the Etsy Success Holiday Boot Camp to the best of my abilities. I vow to check in every week, do my homework and support my fellow Holiday Boot Campers. I will read the weekly newsletters and blog posts, check in on the weekly forum thread, read the weekly blog post, check off the checklists and salute the mascot. I promise to share what I’ve learned with those who need it, support my fellow Etsy indiepreneurs and, most of all, have a positive and persistent attitude. I understand that together we can spread the word about our handmade and vintage goods, making this holiday season a more unique and meaningful one to gift givers and give-ees everywhere!
