For the second year now, Etsy Resolution is helping creative entrepreneurs turn their passion and talent into a profitable career!
The main goal of Etsy Revolution is to help aspiring entrepreneurs start their new year with a great opportunity to make some extra income, and flex their creative muscles. If you've ever thought about selling your own handmade products, now is the time. Etsy is bringing you 16 experienced and successful sellers to mentor participants between January 30th and February 27th in a free email course.
Learn about product photography, what to sell, how to get yourself found, successful marketing techniques, search-engine optimization, and shipping tips. You'll get four simple emails telling you how to open your shop, find inspiration and beautifully curate your products to make them appealing to shoppers. All you need to do is sign up and read the lessons, complete some tasks and connect with other participants going through the same thing.
Registration is open until January 27th. Get your email in before it starts!
