The word treasury is very popular in the Etsy community and has it’s own specific meaning. A Treasury describes a curated selection of 16 items in a mini gallery. These 16 items are selected to illustrate a theme, trend, something that you like, help your team, etc. People are most familiar with treasuries as they appear on a rotating basis on the front page of the site. Treasuries are a huge part of the Etsy culture, and the goal is to get every seller more exposure.
Treasuries are a great way to build a connection with fellow Etsy shop owners and are an awesome tool to do networking and gain more exposure.
Treasuries are known to take time but no worries anymore! Here is a secret that will show you how to create Etsy treasuries in less than 2 minutes.
Also, I recommend that you make every day between 5 to 10 treasuries. Do different themes, and always send a convo to the person that was featured.
Remember to like, comment, share on your social sites and ask the other listing shops to do the same.
This helps to boost your rankings in Etsy treasury and shows you are an active member of the Etsy community.
The amount of convos you get is critical because it means that you are building great relationships by helping other sellers.
