Getting Ready for the Art Walk Weekend

Every month our AWETeam (Art Walk Etsy Team) gears up for about a week ahead of the Art Walk online event.

It sometimes feels quite like a game trying to navigate how people can find artists, vintage sellers and quality suppliers of goods to make more handmade items.

Technology is constantly changing and people are viewing the world in different ways.

So in our latest attempt to get our team member shops seen, we are creating new square image Profile Photos that we upload to our public Team Facebook page.

There on our First Friday Art Walk Weekend FB page our members are asked to add a link to their Etsy shop and to their FB business page that is associated with their Etsy shop.

Even this can be tricky if you are copy and pasting, but the format is simply: SHOP NAME BUSINESS PAGE

We are open to suggestions on how to better help promote our team members - and to get those team members participating every month and helping to share our team and promote this mostly event.

Please leave suggestions in the comments!

Our November team blog post will be live on Friday, November 6, 2015.

If you are an artist, vintage seller, or a supplier for making more handmade items, please join our team and add items to our event thread and FB page!

Square Social Media Images for the AWETeam

The Art Walk Etsy Team (AWETeam) has so many talented artists selling their work through and we all have joined this team in order to help get our handmade work seen through our once a month online First Friday Art Walk Weekend Event.

Here are some images that can be used to help promote this monthly event through social media.

If you are savvy enough, please have them link back here to our AWETeam blog:

And you are welcome to put the upcoming "event" dates (the First Friday of the month + Saturday and Sunday). Because things on the internet are out there forever, it is probably a good idea to also put the year.

Here are some of our social media tags:

And to communicate with our team:

When First Friday rolls around, we will have a blog post up with the current monthly "event" thread where our AWETeam members have linked up to 4 items from their shop so you can check them out!

And we always ask that if there is a regular First Friday, Second Saturday, etc type Art Loop event in your area locally, please put a link to that Art Loop website in the comments and we will get our "Local Art Walk" blog page updated.

Thanks for supporting handmade artists work (and vintage items, and supplies to make handmade - which by the way was the original motive behind that this team was established upon).
