He then described step-by-step how to open an Etsy account, set up your store, and add product listings. He also discussed fees, setting prices and shipping costs, taking (or hiring) professional photographs of your products, choosing and including search words, writing effective text to describe your product, and more. He also discussed promotion and marketing using paid advertising and social media. He included advice from successful Etsy sellers, including specific things they did that increased their sells. I found this advice both interesting and helpful. The author included plenty of links to online help pages and included some sample worksheets. While this book will help anyone who wants to set up an Etsy account, it's targeted at those who want to create a profitable business from their crafting. Overall, I'd recommend this book. I received an ebook review copy of this book from the publisher through NetGalley.

The first chapter describes what Etsy has to offer. Find what you get as a seller, how to prepare to run your own business, and more. You get a comprehensive overview of what Etsy is, and what it can do for you. With Chapter 2 you get more information about your responsibilities as a small business operator. Even though you may not be making enough money to live on, you are now running a small business. So that comes with responsibilities. With “Calculating Your Costs And Setting Your Prices” all the information that you need to define your audience, choose the right materials and supplies, and how to figure out the best price for your items, is broken down.

This section gives you all the details you need about variations right down to the shipping information. It even provides excellent information on how to make professional quality photographs, which anyone with who has viewed Instagram postings can see isn’t as easy as point-and-click. “If you build it they will come” was a line from a famous movie, but that is not always the case with a business. Promotion and marketing are key. This section covers gaining new buyers as well as generating repeat business from your existing customer base. Using social media is also a key and is covered in depth over several pages. “Customer Service” is covered in Chapter 7, it cannot be stressed enough how important it is to provide excellent customer service. There are several excellent points included on ways to handle your customer service and strategies for providing top-notch service as well.

At the end of the book is a list of the Etsy business resources and their website addresses. An invaluable resource. In all, if you are thinking about creating an Etsy business, then this is an excellent resource and well worth the read. This review is in response to a complimentary copy of the book sent to me by the publishers in exchange for an honest review.

    I received a copy of this book from a Goodreads giveaway. I have previously had an Etsy shop and plan to open one again in the future. I think that this book offers a lot of good advice. There is everything from getting started to pricing items and growing your customer base. A lot of good tips!
