Starting a Handmade Business on Etsy

Etsy is the largest e-commerce website devoted to handmade, vintage items and supplies. Learn about Etsy from a former employee who spent seven years working with sellers. Explore seller tools and policies, pricing strategies, getting clicks and sales, branding and trends, and best practices for dealing with buyers. We'll do a product critique, photoshoot and list an item in your shop. Students must have a basic seller account on Etsy but it’s not necessary to have items for sale. Bring a sample of your wares and a simple digital camera or camera phone. For US-based sellers. Fiscal and legal aspects excluded. A $10 materials fee is due to the instructor on first day of class. Please bring a sack lunch.
