A few years ago, I stumbled across Etsy and thought it was such a fantastic place for people to buy handmade, weird, and unique items. I wasn’t happy with my job at the time and with a little help from my brother I decided to start selling decals on Etsy.
Not long after, my sister was having a baby so I decided to make a really cool nursery decal for her new baby. Funnily enough I published the decal as an item for sale on my shop and people really liked it. Well a few years later, my shop has been almost completely taken over by nursery wall decals. I guess maybe I’m still a kid at heart haha.
It was a slow going process to get some momentum, and in the first 3 months the shop received only 3 sales total!
After about 3 months of painful waiting, testing, and trying, the shop finally took off. Sales started to pour in, 5 star reviews started to stack up, and the shop has grown to be in the top 1% of all shops on Etsy out of 1,500,000.
Since then I started an Amazon store and several more Etsy shops.
My sisters and a few friends started to ask questions about how they could start their own shops, so I decided to share with them my formulas and fill in the blank templates that I used every day to create new successful listings. Their shops took off a lot more quickly than mine did and some of them have even gone on to do WAY better than even I have on Etsy haha.
I hope you will find my many tips and advice helpful and I look forward to hearing about your Etsy success too!
