Want to have a side business that can earn $2000/month side income? Let an Etsy shop owner show you how to build a great niche shop from scratch and enjoy side income for life. Etsy is great. It is not too big, and not too small. It is a market just right for beginners with no experience and no money - anyone can at any age. In this class I want to show you insights and practical advice. Let's dig deep.
Everyone should and could have a store. This course has three major differences. 1. We use exclusive market research data from proprietary crawling. 2. I am a real store own and will show behind the scene operation pictures of the shop. 3. I will show you money saving and time saving tricks to navigate the world of SEO, niche, product, and growth.
My name is Chang Liu. I am a shop owner and an entrepreneurship advisor. I have been working on product introduction, digital marketing and business building for over 15 years. Feel free to check my other Udemy courses and Quora space on startup.
Three advantages of Etsy over Amazon or eBay:
1. There is no cost to start, Etsy is easy on budget;
2. The platform is forgiving on newbie mistakes;
3. It is not saturated (no matter what you have been told) and anyone has a chance.
There are three major cautions:
1. Success takes time. Etsy has a time line that takes time, even if you are on the right track.
2. It is unlikely someone get insanely rich quickly. However, it is possible to have a side income business.
3. One benefits of starting to sell is you gain the business mindset. Once you know how to build a shop business, you can build any business.

Most people's startup is a "self high". Avoid this.
They think they are smart and can do great things uniquely.
They want people to find their unique thing and appreciate it instantly.
They want people to pay for that.
This scenario does not work.
Most of things people want to buy have been produced. People don't buy many things, including worthy and interesting offerings. People take time to make purchasing decisions, and people only find you when you place YOURSELF on THEIR THOUGHT PASS.
