The First Three Steps to Etsy Success

If you Google “Etsy success” a bunch of articles about tips, hacks and tricks will likely show up. Some of that is probably helpful (particularly if its from wink) but these things actually are only useful or relevant AFTER the FIRST, TRUE and surprising keys to Etsy success.

hey, i’m danielle

A maker, craft business ‘biz bestie’ and educator who loves iced americanos and pop music.

My first year in business, I made a whopping $4,000 in revenue from my handmade business (that’s not even enough to support my Starbucks habit). In year two, I earned almost $80,000 in revenue! And guess what? I did NOT make $80K with the same approach that I used to make $4K. Not even close!

Since I saw such a drastic transformation from year one to year two in my business, I know I have to share what I learned about turning a crafty tendency into profits with you (so, if you’re anything like me, you can support your Starbucks habit, too).

Be inspired and supported as a maker through my blog and podcast where I share insights from my 8+ years experience selling handmade work online and working with hundreds of students to do the same.
