Just Imagine…

Imagine if you could have consistent sales in your Etsy shop and greatly increase your revenue….Does that sounds like a fantasy? Well it’s not. In 2018 I earned as much with my Etsy shop and BeautifulMesh business as I did in my “regular” job. Yes, I earned a full-time income with BeautifulMesh while also going to a 9-5 four days a week and having two kids at home. If I can do it, you can do it.

 If you’re a creative entrepreneur looking to expand your business, while also possibly working a part-time or full-time job then you know that selling online is where its at. You also know that Etsy has the cheapest fees of any online marketplace platform and has built a network of 37 million shoppers who are already there waiting for you. You have probably also realized that improving your online presence is the key to expanding your business – especially so that you don’t have to drag all those items to and from another local craft show.

 So if you’re reading this now you’re in the right place. Handmade Sellers 201 will help you to learn how to improve your Etsy shop and reach your goals.

 Learning how to improve your Etsy SEO and use social media to drive traffic to your shop takes time and trial and error. You KNOW you have to put in the work to learn. And if you’ve been quietly sitting by, not doing anything, and hoping it will just magically improve – I’m sorry to tell you it won’t. Choosing to do nothing is in fact a choice and it has consequences – usually it means that eventually you will sell less and less as the algorithm keeps changing and you don’t change with it.

 Is the Etsy market saturated? Maybe. But only at the level of the shop owners who do nothing and don’t try to learn the best ways to list their items or drive traffic to their shop. The majority of Etsy sellers have no real strategy and most just list some items in their shop and hope that they sell, without ever really knowing or caring if they’re doing it “right”.

 Which means…you still have the opportunity to secure your corner of the market, provided you can avoid the mistakes that your competitors are making and you can separate yourself from the pack.

 That’s why I created Handmade Sellers 201 – to keep you up to date on the latest ways to improve your Etsy shop and drive traffic to create more sales. Etsy 201 is a course designed for intermediate to advanced Etsy shop owners who are ready to “up-level” their already established shop to make consistent sales and grow their business.

Who is this course for?
  • Intermediate or Advanced Etsy shop owners that need more help
  • The person who is ready to put in the work to grow their shop (and who is probably already investing hours a week/month actively trying to find ways to bring more buyers to their shop but getting frustrated in the process)
  • Shop owners that are excited about the prospect of what their Etsy shop could become
Who is this course NOT for?
  • Beginners without an Etsy shop
  • Someone without at least a rudimentary understanding of Facebook, Instagram, and Pinterest
  • Someone who doesn’t want to learn or put in the work

How it Works

Here’s the layout of what you will learn in the course week by week:

Would you like to learn how to boost your Etsy sales & Revenue?

It was great to take this course to help me understand and implement changes I needed to make and continue to work on to make my shop successful. There is so much information out there, tech stuff and social media stuff and it gets overwhelming. It helps to take it a topic at a time and get a better understanding on how it all works.
