Etsy Success--Are You Ready

1. 4.

If I said it once, I said it 1000 times "I Love Etsy"

Here is just one more way they foster a fantastic creative community and spirit. Not only do they provide a venue for you to sell your creations but they also spend a lot of time and effort to teach you how to be successful. How cool is that?

Etsy Emails is a feature that allows you to subscribe to email alerts on various topics... Nobody wants a ton of junk mail and I'm really picky about email subscriptions so I only signed up for one initially: "Etsy Success"

I must say I have not been disappointed. I get one weekly email filled with useful tips. Thanks to Daniellexo the fabulous author. She also organizes the programing for Etsy's Virtual Labs and teaches sometime at 3rdWard.org, a member-based design center for creative professionals in Williamsburg, Brooklyn, NY.

Here's a link to this week's "Etsy Success" ...a digest of weekly tips for Etsy Sellers

Today's "Etsy Success" email contained the following jewels...
Get Found
Etsy Storque article, April 2009, on Optimizing your shop for search engines
Stock Up Custom Mini Promotion cards & Business cards
DIY Branding Ideas Etsy Storque article, Nov 12, 2008, on product packaging
Get Prepared
Tips from Handmademarketing.org on preparing your own press and media kits

If you wish to sign up for this or other email alerts, login to your Etsy account and go to Etsy Emails

Sign up. You will not be disappointed. Your Etsy Shop success is in your hands...arm yourself with all the tools and info you can and then get to work so you will be ready when it comes.

Daniellexo has this motivating quote on her profile page...

“If you think you're too small to be effective, you have never been in bed with a mosquito.”
~Betty Reese

I like what Oprah says,
"Success is Preparation meeting Opportunity"
