We look for "front page worthy" treasuries that feature:
- a good variety of items, shops and price points
- themes from the Etsy monthly merchandising reports
- complete and accurate utilization of tags and keywords
- collections that do not include the curator's own shop
- high quality photos
We're looking for:
- shops selling items we do not already have on our team
- at least a full page of well-photographed items
- at least 98% positive feedback
- an inviting and professional appearance
We are perfectly happy if you to belong to other treasury/promotional teams, as long as you can keep up with your team requirements and be an active member of our team.
If you have not made any treasuries recently, have no social media outlets and/or do not yet have at least a full page of items in your shop, please contact us when you do, and we'll be happy to review your shop.
If after reviewing the team description you feel you are a good candidate for this team, please answer the following questions:
- Tell us about yourself, your shop, and your process (provide shop URL)
- Do you have any other shops (provide URLs)? If so, will you be asking for membership for those shops?
- Do you belong to any other treasury/promotional teams?
- Do you have any special skills (e.g., computer work, graphic design, blogging) that you would like us to know about?
- Please provide the links to at least two recent treasuries you have curated.
- What social media sites do you use?
Please keep in mind that if we already have many members selling the same kinds of items as you, we may not be able to accept your application despite your meeting the above requirements. In that case, we will encourage you to apply again at a later time.
