Starting an Etsy Shop: Nuts and Bolts

October 22, 2014 @ 6:00 pm - 8:00 pm | $20.00


Sadie Rose Casey

Class Description:

Join us for an informational workshop on Etsy Shops. This class will cover basic information on starting and running an Etsy shop, as well as delve into information on Etsy culture and realities, mobile options, photography ideas, and general tips and tricks about maintaining a good-looking and functional store.

Over the years, Etsy has become THE global online market place for handmade items. Can you benefit from this? Probably! Aside from simply providing a marketplace, Etsy also provides a community and culture that can benefit your brand/creations in more ways than one. You never know who will see your work and what they will want to do with it or where they might want to share it.

Maintaining an Etsy shop is a lot more work than it looks. It takes commitment, attention to detail, and constant work. This class will inform you about all of these things so that you don’t have to learn them as you go, and so you can eliminate the trial-and-error part of this process. I will discuss everything I have learned on my Etsy journey over the past 6 years, and I will also discuss the dramatic changes that Etsy has undergone during this time.

You will leave this class feeling inspired to get started on your own Etsy shop and also with answers to any questions you have right now. Additionally, you will leave with several tools and guidelines how to make your shop look good, stand out, and therefore have more potential for succes
