Summary

Four books in one:

  • Build Your Own Online Store: Exact Step-by-Step Guide
  • How to Make Money on Etsy
  • Etsy Tips, Tricks, and Hacks for Successful Selling on Etsy
  • Etsy SEO: How to Out Rank the Rest

Etsy has successfully brought craft fairs to the people of the online world, and they have shaken the image of handmade items from "that will do" items to hot ticket best-selling and hugely desirable products. Just because this platform exists though, doesn't mean that getting to the top of it is as easy as having a great product and putting it into a search engine. With this book, you will be told how to set yourself up on Etsy for success and how to create a growing income from your boutique items. You'll learn:

  • Exact steps how to build your own Etsy store
  • Everything you need to do before you open your Etsy store
  • Mistakes you can make and how to avoid them
  • How to select the perfect Etsy store name
  • How to list your products properly so they sell the fastest
  • Discover how to find out what is trending in the handmade and vintage world and how you can be a part of that
  • Find out the best way to optimize your Etsy page so that it will come up at the top of a search engine and people will click on your product over another
  • The secrets to getting to the front page and how best to use forums and teams to create a lasting brand that will keep customers coming back again and again
  • Promote yourself for free with several social media platforms that are especially catered to Etsy users

When it comes to selling well on Etsy, there is a lot of competition. There are many other people with exciting and creative products that may even be able to match your own. However, competition is only a problem if it can compete with you.

Etsy business is bigger than I expected.

Any additional comments?

To be honest, I didn't realize how large a business Etsy was until I listen to this audible book! It does a fantastic job at laying out the steps to become a successful crafts seller on the thriving site, and provides some insightful strategies to stand out from the competition and increase profits. Highly recommended.

Meh

I read a lot of books. This has no meat and potatoes. It’s a lady talking about how everything has to be “perfect” and you shouldn’t expect $1 for 6 months. I think that’s quite unrealistic and hard to comprehend that that’s good advice. It definitely doesn’t explain how to do things, it’s very very general and a waste of my time. I just opened an Etsy store and I didn’t learn anything useful.

Don’t Bother!

Sounded just like my 5th grade teacher telling us how to write our first book report.
Stated the obvious in the most turgid way possible. Now that I’ve woken up, I’ll be returning this book.

Great, useful info, but kinda hard to listen to.

Great, useful guide for starting out with an etsy store. However, the narrator sounds like a female version of Data from Star Trek reading a textbook out loud.
