How to build a strong foundation for a long term success at Etsy & beyond


"There are so many people that are doing what I want to do and they are good at it!"

"How can my new shop compete with established shops with thousands of sales and positive reviews?"

"My products will never stand out on a huge market like Etsy."

If you’re about to open or have recently opened an Etsy shop, then chances are that you too, have these fears and doubts.

  • And you are probably right! Succeeding in such a competitive environment like Etsy is not easy or straightforward.
  • One of the most common mistakes that people make is that they open their shop, they "get out there", before they’re ready.
  • They don’t know who their target customers are, how to find them, who they’re competing against, how to price their products for maximum profitability, how to present their brand in the best way possible to make it stand out.

To put it simple: they just don’t know what it takes to succeed!

That’s the main reason that most Etsy shops get lost in the crowd and fail sooner or later.

That’s what this course is all about!

How to make your shop perfect in every way BEFORE you open it and how to IMPROVE it in every way if you have already opened it!

You will learn:

  • How to appeal to your target market & your ideal customer
  • How to stand out from your competition
  • How to identify & take advantage of the unmet needs & the new trends of your market
  • How to build an amazing, strong brand that’s going to supercharge your Etsy shop and boost your sales
  • The best way to use all of your brand’s visual elements in your shop (photos, graphics, video, fonts)
  • The ideal way to use copywriting for all of your shop’s texts and descriptions (Profile, About, product descriptions, FAQs)
