The Christmas In July team received an Etsy fellowship in 2015 which focused on Instagram. Team leaders Dawn, of DeeDeeDeesigns and Alicia, of AliciasFindings joined me for this fellowship. That is when we launched our Christmas In July Instagram account.
As team leaders we are always looking for creative, innovative ideas to be active on social media. When it was announced that Etsy Success was hosting an Instagram Photo Challenge we shared the specifics with the #EtsyCIJ team so that members would have the chance to participate!
Etsy Success announced that they were looking for Etsy shop owners to practice photographing one of their products in a way that communicated size and scale. Then to Tag their photo with #EtsyHome and @EtsySuccess. After that Etsy Success would feature a few of their favorites on Instagram!
An important tip on Instagram is that a photo of your product next to common objects or on a model will help shoppers more easily understand its size (without having to read further for dimensions). Etsy Success was looking for us to get creative!
Dawn Reposted this opportunity on the #EtsyCIJ instagram account and here are the team members who were creative and participated!
Thank you stocklanestudio, DeeDeeDeesigns, and ArabellaBlossoms for participating in the Etsy Photo Instagram Challenge! I sincerely hope that this challenge inspires additional #EtsyCIJ team members to be creative! Please continue to post your photos to the team Instagram account using the tags #EtsyChristmasInJuly, #EtsyHome and @etsysuccess for a chance to have Dawn feature them!
