When you join Etsy as a seller, you become a part of this great big crafters community. Etsy offers a lot of educational opportunities - you can sign up and attend "virtual classrooms" on a topic that interests you and a teacher will lead the classroom and you can type in a question and it will be answered in the class. I just saw on Etsy that they are having a Success Symposium on Friday and offering lots of workshops on different topics and I have signed up for these two:
Get Pinned: Build your Community and Brand with Pinterest with Jasmine Trabelsi
Get Out There: Using Craft and Wholesale Shows to Support Your Small Business
If you are a crafter and have been wanting to try to sell your product, you should consider joining Etsy as a seller - it is very easy to get started and even though it can be hard to get your product noticed with so many sellers, Etsy offers so much help with this and you can link your Etsy up with Facebook, Twitter, Pinterest and more!
