Event description

Description

A two day workshop to get your handmade, vintage or craft supplies business online with etsy.com. No prior experience is required - this is a beginners workshop and is catering to makers entirely new to Etsy or with up to 20 sales.

We will work through setting up your shop and getting a listing photographed and live. This will include discussions and practical sessions on writing copy, search engine optimisation, shipping, understanding Etsy's dashboard and stats and finding your target market.

This workshop is over two Saturdays the 13th and 20th of January from 10-3.30 in Caerphilly Library and there will be some work to do between sessions at home.

Ideally you will bring your own laptop; we do have laptops available in the library but it's best to have your own in case of technical difficulties and you will be asked to do a little prep thinking beforehand, shop name etc. Information will be sent out at least a week before the event.

There will be a significant photography element to the workshop, so to get the most out of the day a camera would be great. A phone camera will do, but the better the camera the better the results, so if you have a proper digital camera please bring it; along with the cable etc required to connect it to your laptop.

This workshop is for totally new sellers and those with less than 20 sales.

If there is interest in more advanced workshops please let me know by filling out this expression of interest form. Please also use this form if you are interested in this workshop but not available on this date.


A little about me: I am a full time jeweller selling on Etsy, with over 1000 sales, I do sell on other platforms and will be willing to answer any questions I can but we will primarily be discussing Etsy. I am also the founder and co captain of the local Etsy team www.cavetsy.co.uk. Before starting on Etsy I was a secondary school teacher, a geologist, a receptionist, a TEFL teacher, and a few other random things. Due to health problems in 2011 I had to give up teaching, and selling online gave me the flexibility to manage my health issues and to build a successful business which is has become a full time career. I also have a keen interest in photography, which has grown alongside my shop and been invaluable for selling online! I have previuosly run workshops as part of Etsy UK's official Etsy Educator program.
