DIY Etsy with Irene Blueth: Selling online for makers & creative entrepreneurs

Setting up shop on Etsy costs next to nothing and you will get found by more customers than if you have your own website. Despite its reputation for unique handmade stuff, Etsy also showcases repeatable items, digital downloads, vintage goods and craft supplies. We will consider product photography, SEO (search engine optimization), shipping from Cortes, and developing the perfect niche product. We will look at some successful Etsy shops, both local and international.
