Publisher Comments:

Back in the olden days—youknow, circa 2004 or so—artists and craftspeople had to drag their portfolio and wares to galleries and craft shows, and popularity in the local market didn't mean an end to your day job. But thanks to Etsy, a website that connects makers of handmade products and crafts with buyers, those same artisans can now market and sell their goods to a worldwide network of motivated shoppers.

Etsy.com is the newest tool of the arts and crafts trade, and How to Make Money Using Etsy is your instruction manual. To date, the site has attracted over 400,000 sellers who collectively have sold over30 million items, generating more than $180.6 million in revenue.

Whether an Etsy newbie or a veteran seller, you'll get a step-by-step guide to running a successful Etsy shop. Successful Etsian Tim Adam leads you through the Etsy community, including the forum, where fellow Etsians offer support and critiques vital to defining your brand; the Etsy Storque blog; and the Etsy Teams, like-minded sellers who help promote each other's work.

Mastering your craft is only step one in developing a successful Etsy brand. You'll learn how to:

  • Properly set up your Etsy shop and start listing your handmade goods
  • Develop a good keyword and search engine optimization strategy
  • Create compelling blog content to drive traffic to your Etsy shop
  • Promote your brand through Facebook and Twitter

In a world where nearly everything has been made by machine, the demand for handcrafted goods is growing. You know how to make the products—now master the age-old craft of making money.
