PRO TIP –

If you are considering a category to sell in it would be advantageous to pick one of those categories as these are where the buyers are.

 

Let’s break this down:

The number one shop on Etsy at the moment is in the Craft Supplies & Tools category ( also in the Handmade category).

What you should be doing on Etsy today to make your shop successful

 

Shops that are successful on Etsy are unique not generic shops.

You have to stand out to become successful.

Pricing and Etsy SEO ( not to be confused with google SEO ) are also important when it comes to being found on Etsy.

 

What other options are there if you don’t want to set up an Etsy shop?

 

If you don’t want to start an Etsy shop you could look at starting your own Website or Blog the advantage to doing this is you have full control over all aspects of selling your crafts.

So you won’t have extra fees apart from what your payment company charge.

Most websites that run on WordPress allow you to set up a shop free with Woo commerce and if you are just starting out this can be great value.

 

You would only need to pay for hosting and your domain name for instance I use Siteground and as a starter hosting company they are great for reliability, contact-ability and site speed.

The disadvantage to having your own website is that you need to promote it to get traffic to it and this can be time consuming.

With Etsy you have a ready made audience but it is competitive as well.
