In my line of work, it is important to keep up with trends and new developments. In order to do that, I rely heavily on thought leaders in my communities and one such thought leader is Cindy Lou of Cindy Lou Who 2. She is based in Calgary, Alberta, Canada and makes goregous jewelry using raw crystals, stones, and even fossils. If you want to check out her jewelry, I highly recommend visiting her here:
While I am very much a fan of her jewelry, I am even more of a fan of her insightful writing. This article was published last week and really caught my attention:
In this article, she breaks down the major announcements Etsy unleashed upon all of us around Valentine’s Day with a clarity and transparency I really admire. She reminds us not to panic before going into her experience as part of the Seller Team since November 2016 with Etsy Attributes.
Her article is broken down into the following sections:
1. NEW ITEM ATTRIBUTES – MORE OPTIONS TO CATEGORIZE PRODUCTS
2. HOW WILL THIS AFFECT SEARCH?
3. ETSY STUDIO – ETSY’S NEW WEBSITE MARKETPLACE FOR DIY
4. WILL ETSY STUDIO AFFECT ETSY SEARCH?
This article is so helpful because in it she clearly outlines what we do not and what we don’t know without giving into fear and hyperbole. She offers some guidance as to what we can expect moving forward and like me, she also sees Etsy Studio as an amazing opportunity.
What do you think of her article and her thoughts on these exciting new developments?
