#DorsetTeamTips - Admin!

This week we are talking admin! Not the most exciting of topics we admit but one that is essential to making your business run smoothly and this is particularly important in the run up to Christmas.

We would love to hear what you do to make the more boring bits of your business go smoothly?

Do you have a top tip for paperwork, tidying or organisation?

Do you have an amazing system for organising what orders go out when or maybe you have a fantastic system for sorting your jewellery supplies. We would love to hear all about them!

Please either comment below or share on any social media platform by including #DorsetTeamTips in your post.

Shop Updates - A new marketing tool from Etsy

Photo Credit: 
Exciting news this week from Etsy, they have introduced a new marketing tool for sellers which is being rolled out to make sharing on the Etsy sellers app earlier. It is called Shop Updates and will make sharing from the app onto social media much easier and quicker and works as a 'in house' social media feed. 

Etsy say "Buyers using the Etsy shopping app will see these updates on their homescreen from Etsy sellers they’ve interacted with through favoriting or purchasing. Buyers will also see updates on a seller’s shop home. "

Do you have the new Shop Updates feature? We would love to hear what you think about it in the comments section below!

For more information on the update please see the Etsy community news:
