If you are considering starting or currently running an Etsy Shop. I myself run a successful Etsy Shop. I can help you.
I understand that you are all excited to be opening an Etsy Shop, and you should be! But, there is much more to opening a shop, and being successful, than many people think. I myself used to be one of those people. When I first opened my shop, I knew very little about running an Etsy Shop. Obviously it seemed daunting to me when I was first setting my shop up, it use to take me so long to list one piece of Jewelry, with title, pictures, descriptions, pricing, tags, shipping etc. and as I look back I have to laugh. When I first started little did I know what a grand adventure I would have? At first I listed some items and sat back and I waited, and waited, and waited. You get the picture!
In my life before Etsy, I had worn many different hats and titles, everything from Retail, CEO admin, Business owner, Assistant Manager, Customer Service, and Sales.
Looking back I can now definitely see all the valuable skills each different position allowed me to gain.
Before Etsy, I was employed by a credit card co. and was a One Call Resolution Specialist, it was a stressful position and I wanted to leave to pursue something I loved doing, life coaching, my desire was to help people in life.
So one day in Nov 2011, it had been a very tough day and I just decided to give my 2 week notice. I do not recommend that however. We had a couple of rough years.
However since I no longer had a regular full time job, I knew I must be diligent with my Etsy shop, I still needed to bring in money. I began running it like a small business, I read everything I could to help my shop be successful, I learned about key words, titles, descriptions, and the list went on and on. I was determined and I would research anything I was unsure about. Of Course there were those days where I just wanted to give up. I would list a new item/s and maybe get 2 views. Discouraging yes, but I kept thinking people are making their living on Etsy and so can I!
So nevertheless I persisted, and I found better ways to do what I needed to do, better photography, better descriptions, key words, tags, titles, etc.
My little Etsy shop slowly began to take flight in late 2013, soon I was earning a great 2nd income for our family and I never looked back. I just keep moving forward!
Oh how I wish that I had a coach or mentor to lean on for support and to point me in the right direction. I learned by doing and it was either a win or an epic fail. More fails than wins at times.
During this time period I was studying to be a Certified Professional Coach. I graduated right about the same time my Etsy Shop got busy. So I put my coaching career on the back burner at that time. Always knowing I would get back to coaching at some point. I am now coaching again and I love it. I love supporting and encouraging people to shoot for the moon, after all the worst that could happen is to land among the stars.
So here I am, here to support You, by answering questions, about the things you are wondering about. Helping you to avoid mistakes I made and to support and encourage you. Anything worth having takes work, but my journey has been so worth it and yours will be too!
I am a professional coach, who will help you with your Etsy shop. You can count on me to the listen and help you make sense of it all. I will not tell you what to do, but we will have a conversation/s that will get us talking, and thinking of ways to work on the issue or issues you face. I would love to help you!
