What It's About
Tips and advice for selling on the world's largest handcrafted marketplace.
Notes from Chris
Episode 1107Etsy is the world’s largest handcrafted marketplace, and we have featured stories of Etsy sellers more than three dozen times in the history of the program. Most of the time we try to look for some specific angle, either how someone is selling differently there or what they’ve learned as they’ve grown their business, or how they’ve transitioned from selling on Etsy to their own website. One of my favorite stories is from Jennifer Brown in Chicago (Ep. 182: Chicago Woman Sells $70,000/Month on Etsy) … I guess you can tell from the title that she’s managed to do pretty well. Today’s listener is looking for some general advice on getting started on Etsy, as well as what to look out for, the pros and cons, and more. Listen to today's episode to learn more...
