We are pleased to announce that the new Indie Business Network member badge for Etsy sellers is here! The idea for this badge came from our member, Etsy shop owner Shari Lewis of Blossom & Twig, in Vanceboro, North Carolina, who told us that she wanted a way to let her Etsy customers know that she was an Indie Business Network member. Indie Business Network members in good standing can log in at this link and download the badge (without the watermark) for the current year.
Thanks to input from Shari, the badge has been designed to complement the non-Etsy 2013 member badge, and it is sized so it displays nicely in Etsy photo areas. Like all member badges, it displays the year so your customers know that your membership is current and active.
We were thrilled that Shari values her Indie Business Network membership enough to make this request, so we asked her to share a little about why she loves being a member. Here is what she said:
I’ve been a member of Indie Business Network for two years, and it’s been a smart investment in my company, Blossom & Twig Artisan Soaps. Everything about IBN is geared toward making its members successful. I particularly appreciate the live success calls and the wealth of information available through the website’s resource section and the Indie Beauty University. If I need information about sales and marketing, SEO, FDA regulations, trademarking, cosmetic labeling, or so many other topics, IBN is my first go-to resource. The recent addition of the Action of the Week on IBN’s private Facebook group has given me very focused steps to implement to help me grow my business.
And then there’s IBN’s founder and CEO, Donna Maria, who is incredibly dedicated to providing the motivation and tools to become more confident and savvy as a business owner. IBN isn’t just a membership, it’s a supportive, interactive community – and I’m very proud to be able to display the new Etsy seller membership badge on my products. It conveys professionalism and a commitment to quality that will foster a sense of trust with Etsy shoppers.
We are honored to serve you, Shari!
