  • What skill level do I need for this class?

    This class starts at the absolute beginning. You don't need any online selling skills, other than having an idea for a product you want to create and sell.

  • How long will I have access to the course?

    My workshops are designed with unlimited access with no expiration date. You can revisit your workshop any time.

  • I already have an Etsy shop set up, but I'm not seeing very many sales. Is this class for me?

    If your shop isn't performing the way you'd like and not bringing very many sales, this class could be for you. Etsy has added more places in your shop that we can add keywords to help your items be found in Etsy's search. ALSO you're going to learn the basics for product photography, how to better write titles, descriptions and tags.

  • I've got an Etsy shop and am seeing some sales, but want to take things to the next level. Is this class for me?

    It sounds like this class is not for you. I'm creating more workshops that will teach you how to increase your sales and move to the next level using Etsy. I got serious about my small business and my shop about 8 years ago. Since then I've increased to six figure annual sales in a very saturated market. I'm SUPER excited to teach what I've learned to my fellow Etsy sellers! Stay tuned!
