Etsy, the world’s largest handmade marketplace, is a powerful tool for selling your items online.

These are the pillars to a successful Etsy business, and when set up well, will make your shop sales soar:

-Shop Activity

-Photography

-SEO

-Pricing

Learn how to get comfortable with these topics and gain confidence in your shop. Etsy seller Amanda Preske, with nearly 3,500 sales, understands how to run an Etsy Shop successfully. Enrollment in this class includes a course guidebook and worksheets- tools that will enable you to optimize your shop for success. The class will be structured with a one hour discussion of the pillars, followed by a Q&A session to answer all of your questions and address your problem areas. If you're struggling with photography, bring your camera and I'll get you more comfortable with using it.
