What’s New… It’s Official, We’re a Street Team! Let’s Gear Up for the Holidays

Matt, Etsy marketing guru, has updated the street team profiles page and included our group on the list.  We still need a team banner and the member section needs to be filled out, but that will be done all in good time.  You can view our Etsy Street Team profile page here:  http://team.etsy.com/profilest/artj.shtml
Also, Matt just announced that there are some big marketing plans for the holiday season.  See here: http://team.etsy.com/?p=39#comments.  He will continue to contact print, online and televised media (both nationally syndicated and local) with the single simple goal of getting consumers to BUY HANDMADE.  He is asking that street team members again send in items for the handmade gift baskets sent out to the media. 
I think that as a group we should take advantage of this opportunity to get our name out there and into the public conscience.  Any ideas on how we, the Art Jewelry Collective, should best go about doing this?  Perhaps we could each send a small item to Matt with our regular business card and a card detailing the Art Jewelry Collective.  What do y’all think?  If we do this, we must act fast because the holidays are right around the corner.  Also, if anyone else has any ideas on inexpensive yet effective holiday marketing, please voice your opinion.   
Lastly, I sent everyone a short message last night announcing that Etsy version 2.0 will be launching very soon.  The Etsy blog has several screenshots of the new site, which can be accessed here: http://blog.etsy.com/  This is all very exciting especially since thanks to Winnie, we will soon have the Art Jewelry Collective shop up and running! 
So, that’s it for now.  Please do not forget about the calendars!  Your photos are due to Pippit by Monday, October 16th.  I’ll be updating our blog this weekend so that hopefully the answers to any questions you have can be found here.  I’ll let you know when it is updated. 
Have a Happy Friday!
