etsy shop tips: encouragement and an invitation

When I started selling on Etsy in 2009, I remember putting my first few listings up, and not really knowing how the whole thing worked. What I did know is that I was too damn millennial to sit in a cubicle all day long. This was it. This was my dream.

I made $200 that first month and I was ECSTATIC. I made $500 the second month and I was on top of the world. I rode that high for several months, and then I realized..

This was a hobby.

It was fun, but it wasn't sustainable. If I really wanted to make this a living (and I did.. more than anything else in the whole wide world!), I needed to figure out the system.

Now, when I list something on Etsy, I'm confident that it will be relevant, show up high in search, and get seen by the people who will become my best customers and favorite fans.

Take this dude for example - he's currently on page 2 out of 72 of ALL hard enamel pins on Etsy. The average buyer will only look through 3-5 pages of search results to find what they're looking for, so trust me when I say that being there is crucial to the success of your shop.

If you know deep down that your shop isn't quite reaching its full potential, I want to be a part of your story. I know exactly how it feels to want more. Exactly how it feels to want to do anything but sit in a cubicle for 8 hours a day.

I'd love to invite you to be a part of the coolest club on the interwebs, just for Etsy sellers like YOU. You know what you want. And you're more than capable of it. Let me help you get there.
