Opening an Etsy Shop

Considering opening an Etsy shop? Already have one open, but stalled out and not seeing the results you expected?

Have no idea what I’m talking about?…

Listen to today’s podcast! And then leave some feedback in the comment section below!

What do you think about Etsy? Do you have a shop running currently? How’s it doing? How are you doing?! Can’t wait to hear what you have to say ;)

    Great info! I have an etsy shop and a blog, and I am interested in learning more about how to drive traffic to them through social media, networking, etc. Any suggestions?

    Thank you so, so much for sharing your knowledge, your passion, your thoughts! I have been sitting on the fence, intimidated & I have to admit a little afraid, but after listening to your podcast I finally did it…I opened my etsy shop on January 13th, & best of all had my very first sale the very next day…WAHOOO!! How amazing is that! :) So thank you…for the chat, the hug in a podcast & for giving me that boost of confidence I so needed! I have a lot to learn, so much growing to do, (which is the beauty of this journey we are all on) & a very long way to go, but I am so very, very excited! :)
    Much love & many blessings

    Hi Laura

    Thank you for taking the time to share with us your knowledge on opening an Etsy store.
    Ebay was horrific for me as people just don’t want to pay and still moaned when clearly the product was great.
    Etsy for me has not worked, but I think it didn’t work because I wasn’t sure what I was doing, I just wanted to do EVERTHING. Oh dear, drove myself crazy for a while there. Now I have found what I want to niche in if you like, (couture accessories for special occasions) and find my own website works best for me.

    You always say something to inspire me, so I say thank you to you for doing that!

    Lots of love and biggest wishes from Cloe Hedger in England x
