Sell Your Creation (and More) with Etsy
- There are no course requirements or prerequisites.
Let's talk about what Etsy is and how you're going to be able to make it work.
One of the things you may have noticed is both eBay and Amazon, when they first started out, people would list their things there. And it was a place where you could go and list your stuff. You could have various things for sale, maybe you were involved in business, maybe you weren't. But it was a place that was for people who just wanted to get their things for sale available and to a larger marketplace.
At some point, though, these companies started to favor big, well established sellers, and for sellers who were really treating it like a business.
So the people that have things that they made, but maybe didn't want to be on Amazon or eBay, because they didn't want to try to scale up, they were only trying to sell some things, or maybe they had a smaller business.
And so the sellers began to find a place on Etsy. And etsy-dot-com is a place for people who have original creations. And these creations can be digital, they can be physical, they can be vintage, items that they create the whole things themselves.
Basically, it's a place where someone who has things that are original creations, they can reach a larger audience.
You're probably going to ask...
are buyers coming to Etsy, and yes, buyers are increasingly coming to Etsy.
And as of 2019, this is the last year they did a whole year tally, the amount of revenue generated was $4.7 billion. That's an indication that this is a viable platform for you to offer your products for sale.
The other question is always going to be whether or not the traffic matches the right people and are is this traffic finding product to purchase, are people going there on the internet to look for things. The answer again is yes. With an Alexa ranking is 120 people are spending time there on the pages of Etsy.
So what kinds of things can you sell.
Actually, if you look at their categories, categories are pretty broad. Basically, they're going to have to be something that you created, where you are considered to be a maker or the creator.
What kind of products can you sell on Etsy?
You can sell physical products.
Your products can be digital.
There are people who sell things like printables, and stickers, as well as how to information courses.
Sometimes even those physical products don't necessarily have to be in your possession, you can do what's called "print on demand".
And so you don't even have to hold the inventory in order to sell it on Etsy. And so Etsy is going to be a place where people can sell what they want to have online. And they don't necessarily want to compete on eBay or Amazon, it means that you've got stuff you've created, or a specialty, it's considered to be vintage, there's a market for people like you on Etsy.

If you can determine how to get things listed, you're going to be able to sell those specialty items, the only thing that's going to be key to Etsy is just not to focus on just one customer at a time and not even just one product at a time but to really focus on the entire market and where it's going.
Because that's how you determine what it is you're going to be able to sell there, you need to make sure that you have your graphics set up and that you're ready change and shift gears whenever you have to in order to be consistently successful on Etsy.
It important to know what to say in your profile, and where to say it. Sometimes getting those first few sales is just a matter of changing a few things in your image or your listing.
