Etsy is the largest e-commerce website devoted to handmade, vintage items and supplies.
Learn about Etsy from a former employee who spent seven years working with sellers.
Explore Etsy's seller tools and policies, pricing strategies, getting clicks and sales, branding and trends, and best practices for dealing with buyers.
We'll do a product critique, photoshoot, and create a prototype Etsy shop (for US-based sellers; fiscal and legal aspects excluded).
Bring a sample of your wares and a simple digital camera or camera phone.
An $8 materials fee is due to the instructor on the first day of class.
