3. Personalize to stand out
Don’t go for “cheap” products. Etsy is a game where you offer personalized items at a premium price.
As we become more conscious of our choices, everyone is preferring personalized and customized gifts... and Etsy is famous for it.
4. Aim for 100 product listings!
Yes, on Etsy if you want to rank yourself higher - I’d suggest you start aiming for at least 💯 products in your store.
Don’t worry it’s not too expensive - in fact, the company prides itself on the fact that you only need 20¢ to open an Etsy shop.
BTW, you can list 40 items for FREE if you use this link to open your Etsy shop.
Just take care of a few things:
Clear product images
Optimize title and Description according to Etsy search engine
Don’t spam Etsy with 10+ products every day. Put in gradual work to show Etsy you are consistently improving your store.
Put it in action...
Now that you are familiar with the What, Why, and How of Etsy - let’s get you an action plan and set you up for success.
Step 1: Finding winning niche/product
Spend a couple of day researching on Etsy and trying to find a pattern on what’s selling the most.
The goal is to find what’s selling on Etsy and what interests you.
Think on the lines of:
What kind of merchandise to sell? Phone cases? Clothing? Jewelry?
What niche you enjoy the most? Parenting? Astrology? Healthy recipes?
How can you make the most selling products better?
Step 2: Researching your competition
Once you have narrowed down your niche and product types to sell
The next step is to research competition
Find 8-10 Etsy shops that are selling what you want to sell and study them in-depth
Research their products, their style of images, their copywriting skills
Step 3: Set up your shop and start listing items
Most important aspects of your shops are:
Shop’s about-us page - tell your story here
Shop’s announcement - give away some discount codes here
Shop’s policies - return, privacy, shipping
Shipping and processing times
Then start designing your products. As usual - your go to tools are:
Canva - for creating designs
Placeit - for generating mock ups
Printful - your print on demand (POD) partner
Step 4: Grow your business
Best thing about Etsy is that it is a marketplace - so it has inbuilt traffic.
Worst thing about Etsy is that is a marketplace :) - therefore there are too many sellers trying to compete against each other.
And that’s the most important reason why you need to work hard to stand out:
Carve out a specific niche
SEO optimize your product details
Images should be super high quality
Show your product in use - instead of just throwing in a mock up of it. Example: someone drinking from a coffee mug or wearing a tshirt - instead of just their mock ups.
Try out social media platforms like Instagram and Tiktok - but I would suggest focus on optimizing your Etsy shop before you distract yourself with other social media platforms.
Don’t be afraid to spend money on ads. This includes collaborating with influencers or running Meta/Tiktok ads.
Remember - running Etsy shop is a business, not a get-rich-quick schema, so treat it like one. Have patience and put in the hard work. And again, please comment below/reply to email if you want me to talk about any of the above topics in further details..
If you are serious about your Etsy business - have a top notch customer service. If needed, hire a VA to do the customer service and never be stingy on the refunds. Customer happiness is key to longevity, regardless of who is wrong or right.
