NO SNEAK ATTACK!


DATE: Tues, May 22-Mon, May 28, 2018

SHOP NAMES: ThreePreciousPandas

Andrea of CunninglyCrafted won't be able to do a Sneak Attack this upcoming week as work and other life things are keeping her very busy.

She'll try to do one after Memorial Day!
You can continue to promote this shop and all the others we have recently done if you have time.
The last 2 Sneak Attacks will remain open for a few more days.
Thanks for understanding.

What's all this? Read our About Us page to find out!

________________________________________


We have changed the Sneak Attack format to hopefully get more members to participate and make it more fun for everyone.

Andrea of https://www.etsy.com/shop/CunninglyCrafted has graciously volunteered to be the new hostess and Leader of all of the Sneak Attacks and has come up with a new format that we are going to try out. Other ideas or improvements are welcome.


We will only be doing one shop a week!

So it should be easier to give the one shop more love and attention! The SNEAK thread will be left up all week. :)

Andrea and Ros will keep a running list of shops in this thread https://www.etsy.com/teams/7565/handmademovement/discuss/18663140, so if you miss a week, or just get bored, you can go back and see former shops and leave some extra love. :) We know not everyone gets on every day, and some only a few times a month. So that thread will be an easy way for the people who aren't on as often to still see all the fun shops!

CURRENT SCHEDULE:

Week of May 22- May 28 Time: NO SNEAK ATTACK

Week of May 29- June 4 Time: ALL WEEK

Blast from the Sneak Attack Past June 2015

Hello friends, we are back to revisit a few Sneak Attack victims from the past! Each month we will give a quick update about a couple shops, this time I have one shop to revisit.

I recently had the pleasure of chatting with KaKyung Cho from BarSoapBrooklynLLC. BarSoapBrooklynnLLC opened on September 5, 2011 and was Sneak Attack by the Handmade Movement on January 5, 2012.



When I asked KaKyung Cho how the Sneak Attacked affected her shop, here's what she shared;

First of all, thank you for you and your team's great work!

Thank you for reaching out and I would be glad to answer your questions:

How did the sneak attack affect your shop?

We all know how hard even get noticed when you start out Etsy shop. You look forward that 1 view of product or shop, then 10, then the first sales. Likely you don't have great product picture, you don't have SEO lined up right, you don't have keywords set up right-all that frustration, and moreover, you might not even know necessity of those. Sneak attack was a break-through moment for my shop and got me courage and strength to go on this journey as maker. 

What was your reaction to the sneak attack?

I was not sure what was going on! I could not believe the sales boost and community support! I still see traffic from sneak attack after three years. It is just amazing.

Are you selling on other venues?

Yes, wholesale is my main business and I do sell to retailers around country. 

Comments you would like us to pass on to the team?

My moto for the business is, that everything has a small beginning. Etsy provides ground for your business to start and possibly sustain your life as a maker. Nothing can rise to the sky in a second. You only can grow when you put your mind to nurture it. Improve, improve, improve everyday and look around what's going on. Do not copy other's idea-there is clear line in between doing market research versus copying other's ideas. Oh, most important thing-DO NOT QUIT your day job unless you have your business plan set up and you already make enough from Etsy (or from other sources) to sustain your life!


Wow, it's wonderful to hear from you and see how your shop is doing today. Thanks so much for taking the time to answer our questions. Wish you the best with your shop!
