Event description

Description

This informal workshop session is ideal for people who wish to open their own Etsy shop.

This day long session is supported by Etsy UK - I have been selected as an official Etsy Educator. This is a national programme running throughout October for new sellers.

You should already have a product (or a range of products) ready to sell, as the day will involve setting up your Etsy shop and listing products, before setting it live to the public.

Critical topics such as postage and packing tips, photography and writing effective product descriptions will all be covered in the day long session. We will look at Etsy stats, basic SEO, and effective use of titles and tags. Tips to make the whole process a lot easier for the seller are shared, and there is opportunity for plenty of interaction with the tutor and other delegates.

You'll need to bring a laptop with you to the workshop, and you should be relatively computer literate in order to be able to make full advantage of the session. You should also bring a smartphone to take photos with, and a couple of your products.

Etsy is a marketplace enabling sellers to sell handmade, vintage or supplies. If you are unsure if your products will be allowable on Etsy please check here - www.etsy.com/uk/legal/sellers.

Refreshments and a light lunch will be provided - please advise in advance of any dietary requirements.

There will be a small amount of preparation work to do before the session, to enable you to set up your shop without any complications or holdups. I will contact each delegate in advance to briefly discuss their product and plans.

As an added bonus, there's the option to meet up for a quick catch up as a group, to ask any lingering questions, on Thursday 26th October at 6pm, at the Everyman on Hope Street, before the October Merseyside Etsy Team Meeting at 7pm.

FAQs

I've already got an Etsy shop, can I book in?

This session is specifically for new Etsy shopowners, and is supported by Etsy as part of the official #EtsyEducators programme. During the session we will be working through the steps to open a brand new shop. This is not the session for you if you already have an Etsy shop. I run Intermediate Selling on Etsy Sessions which will be more suitable for you.

I have access requirements, what's the situation?

The room we are using is down around four flights of stairs and there's no lift - if you will struggle with stairs please let me know and we will see what we can figure out. The toilets are just by the function room, in the basements.

What are my transport/parking options getting to the event?

Parking in the city centre can be difficult to find and quite expensive, so I'd advise getting there by public transport, where possible. Tithebarn St is a 5 minute walk from James Street Station and a 10 minute walk from Lime Street Station or Liverpool ONE bus station. If you choose to drive, try www.parkopedia.co.uk.

Where can I contact the organiser with any questions?

Feel free to get in touch with Becka at hello@beckagriffinillustration.co.uk.

Is my registration/ticket transferrable?

If you find that you cannot attend then you are welcome to pass your place on to a friend who may find it useful. Please let the organiser know if you need to do this.

Do I have to bring my printed ticket to the event?

No, don't worry, I will have a register.

What is the refund policy?

Refunds will be offered in the event of the event being cancelled - and of course in this instance I will give as much notice as possible and offer alternative dates if appropriate. If for any reason you find you are unable to attend then please get in touch and a refund can be offered up to 7 days before the workshop (14th October 2017). After this date I will only offer a refund if I am able to fill your space.

The name on the registration/ticket doesn't match the attendee. Is that okay?

If this is the case please do bring along a print-out of your ticket.
