Do you Sell on Etsy?

Are you into crafts? If so, I need your help.

I’m writing an ebook for a company I regularly produce work for. They in turn have a network of clients who come to them with writing jobs. For this particular job, the topic is Marketing Your Craft on Etsy. I had suggested I include case studies or question /answers with Etsians who are already marketing their crafts successfully on the site. I asked if I could interview craft owners on Etsy and in turn, they would get their name/link showcased in the Ebook.

The company in turn got it touch with the client to run this idea by her and she has agreed to do this. However, I cannot provide you with any details of the ebook (name or author) other than to say it will be sold on her marketing site and via clickbank. Yes, that sucks. But that's the deal.

If you’d still like to go ahead, these are my questions:

-What kind of craft do you specialize in?

-How long have you been doing this craft?

-Is it a hobby or full time business, and if it’s a full time business, when did you set up shop?

-What made you go on to Etsy?

-Do you find yourself getting clients via Etsy?

-What marketing methods do you use?

-Is there anything else you’d like to try out with regards to marketing?

-Any special moments which stand out?

-Is there any other marketing advice you would recommend to a novice crafter?

-Your name

-Your website’s link or Your Etsy store link.

I hope to hear back from you.

With love and success,
