Click on the photos to go to their treasury.
Once upon a time it was really tough. You had to compete and win the right to make a treasury. Etsy released treasury spots at odd times. I never could get my head around being there at the right second. It was too much like fighting to win an auction on Ebay - and there are apps for that.
Now I can make a list any time I like. What I do is open two tabs on my browser (Chrome if it matters), both Etsy, and set one up as the empty treasury, and the other as my search page. I search and browse, copy and paste until I have a bunch of items for my theme.
Then I take a few moments rearranging the items to be a pleasing sequence. I try to group colors or background colors until I like it.
The hardest part has been the themes and titles. Sometimes I've been inspired by a single item to build a treasury around it. I like to be timely, so I made a Father's Day treasury. However I want this to be part of my regular marketing activity. So last night I sat down and brainstormed a bunch of titles/themes. Look for upcoming treasuries like "Spooky", "Trippy", "Flight of the Phoenix" and "Pretty Green".
Remember my current mantra: If you like it, Pin it. Let's get new eyes on our work!
