    I realize that this is probably an old post, but I’m interested to know whether you still feel teams are helpful or not.

    I’m not new to Etsy, I’ve been selling on it for two years, but I recently opened up a second shop selling a completely different set of items. I haven’t done teams before. I thought perhaps I’d look into this one team which I know advertises the groups items on another third party site (which appears to get a fair amount of traffic). I have been waiting for weeks and have yet to be accepted. The group has a mere two threads which are entirely self promotion. Out of curiosity I began to flip through the member profiles and quickly learned that of the 50+ members only five of them are actively selling, the rest appear to have dropped off of Etsy. Now I imagine that like you, many joined willy nilly without considering if they’d realistically use the team or not, but even those members that are active sellers aren’t using the team much, if at all. It seems to be the same two people just posting their wares.

    I went on to look at a handful of other teams and found the exact same problems. Up to 50 members, maybe three of which are still active, and there are only one or two posts every six months to self promote listings.

    I suppose I don’t see the benefit, when we’re posting our items for sale and the team is full of sellers (or dead accounts), it’s more like a show and tell. Is it really going to attract buyers to our shop? Have Etsy teams become pointless?

    Hmm, I’ve not seen teams listed that looked useful. Will re-look.

    I got some spam to join a team and I clicked the wrong button… how do I “unjoin” a team?
