How to Make It Small...Guide to Success
If you've ever wondered what it's like to run a shop like this on Etsy, then this book is your window. This is the story of my first 18 months on Etsy complete with all of the bumps, bruises, and triumphs along the way. But you’re not on Etsy right now are you? You’re on Zibbet! And guess what? So am I! And 1000Markets and ArtFire. (I get around or so they say…) So this is actually a story taking all of my experiences into account.
Trying to make a go of it yourself? Well, in this book you'll get tips on how to set up a great shop including the importance of product pictures, how to bring in those first sales when you feel like you're floundering, understanding the customer and the marketplace, ideas on marketing materials, tagging, pricing, feedback, promoting your shop including blogging and Twitter, choosing venues, wholesale/custom/bulk orders and breaking down the process of branding and finding your niche.
You'll also find examples of convos to send to late or non-paying buyers (Etsy) as well as concrete examples of comprehensive marketing materials that will yield the results that you want for your shop!
There's also a considerable amount of time devoted to understanding, getting and making a Treasury, including how to use the poster sketch tool and the long-term benefits of participating in the Treasury process (Etsy) and how to create a Spotlight for all other venues.
There are lots of words, but also lots of pictures, so you can speed right along. There are a ton of links so that you can go straight to the source and lots of advice to help you make decisions about your shop.
This book is a labor of love, not just a list of answers to FAQs. I hope it will inspire you and help to renew your energy and fine-tune your focus for 2009! I started this book in September of 2008 and have revised it in May 2009, and while there is some step-by-step information in it about various subjects that people struggle with, it also reflects a 'big picture' view as well.
