Learn how to sell on ETSY and what marketing strategies to use for ETSY success!
Etsy is a marketplace for independent artists selling handmade and vintage products. Like eBay and Amazon, they are one of the most recognizable brands in ecommerce with a dedicated base of both buyers and sellers.
Unlike Amazon and eBay, they have a core focus on micro-businesses and aim to “re-imagine commerce.”
And because of that, they are one of the easiest platforms to get started with your online store. They solve a lot of ecommerce problems – especially the “just getting started” part.
But like every option, Etsy may or may not be the best fit for you depending on your product and goals.
Here’s a few reasons that you might want to start with Etsy (and continue with this guide) –
You want to get started for free.
You want to get started with maximum convenience.
You want to get a few initial sales before fully investing in product & inventory.
You want a platform with built-in visitors.
You are likely to have low volume of sales in the beginning.
