    Question Event for handmade jewelry sellers (online shops)...

    Hi!

    I was looking for communities of handmade makers and I was referred to this one. I noticed that this is mostly about handmade jewelry (and the craft) .. and I was wondering if you sell on places like Etsy or have your own online shops too?

    We're doing a road-trip + event meetups with handmade sellers .. especially Etsy sellers ... the events are free (scheduled for January 2016).. It's a 14-city event.

    The event is all about optimizing your shop so you get relevant traffic through the marketplaces themselves and about things like trust factor + brand.

    Just to be sure: this is not a promotional event trying to sell a product.. in fact, our app has nothing to do with Etsy SEO so far.. we're into social media but the events are all about Etsy SEO.

    A lot of Etsy sellers and online selling experts (former handmade sellers) are joining us.

    If you'd like to join / know more about these events, please feel free to check out https://around.io/roadtrip

    Please feel free to ping me if you've got questions

    Thanks!

    All in the US, so quite limited really given how few US-based members we have. Bit of a giveaway - we spell jewellery, um, "jewellery".

    Hey Peter

    Thanks for the heads-up. Also, thanks for checking about the event.. I get your point. I'd be glad if the few U.S members here are able to make it to any of the events.

    @ "jewellery": haha.. my bad... I'm sorry.. I didn't mean to hide the U.S part of it.. just assumed there'd be a lot of U.S members here.. *reminds myself not to assume things arbitrarily*.

    Thanks again, Peter

    Being a speaker of Br. English I used to as well, until I started to make the stuff and use the word a lot in writing. Tagging the letters "ry" on to the word "jewel" suddenly struck me as quite neat. I'm letting the side down, I know.

    It's terribly logical and we want no truck with that sort of thing

    Surely you mean "lorry"?

    Fortunately Google is bilingual, so you can use either jewelry or jewellery for a search.

    I had to go and look things up on that - turns out "truck" as I was using it seems to be from the French "troquer", to barter - presumably from the Latin trocare.
    Truck as in vehicle seems to be from trochus, or iron hoop.

    No need for truculence... (Latin trux)
