Do you know someone who wants to sell on Etsy but doesn’t know where to start? Or you want it yourself?

If yes, we are sharing this 2017 step by step guide on how you can effectively sell on Etsy.

Etsy is a marketplace specially designed for handmade items and art. If you are a creative artists and want to start selling, you can open an account and create a listing for your chosen product/s.

As we all know, there have been a lot of success stories on Etsy who started to sell their own products on the side but soon left their day job to continue selling on Etsy full time.

Three Birds Nest
For instance, Alicia Shaffer of Three Bird Nest is the owner of the second largest handmade store on Etsy. As a mother of three from California, she opened her store and can now make anywhere between $50,000-$70,000 every single month with a focus on scarves, socks, headbands, and the like.

She opened her store in 2011, she now sells around 3,000 units every month and her product range has expanded dramatically. Without any experience and not even a background in fashion, Alicia started with just her, someone to help with all of the sewing, and then a third person to look after the shipping and managing orders.

With the current amount of orders, she now has a team of people to rely upon but still has a heavy hand in what goes on.

With this in mind, it is easy to think “I could never do that” but this success story is living proof that it can happen.

And because of that, I am sharing a video of tips and strategies that will help you with your own store. When first opening an account and setting up the store, it can be a little daunting but we will have some steps to make the process easier and put you in the best possible position for success.
