How To Sell Your Art On Etsy in 2017

via Skillshare


This course is for: Artists, Designers, Illustrators and Hand Letterers.

Are you a visual artist who has always wanted to showcase your art to the world? Have you always dreamed of making money selling your art but not sure where to start? This course is designed to show you how to make your art available on Etsy for people around the world to purchase.

*** This is an updated version of my first Etsy Course! There have been several major updates to how Etsy runs since 2015, so I have decided to bring the course up to date for 2017! 

I am an Etsy seller and want to help other artists establish their shop and begin their Etsy journey. In this course, I will teach you how to set up an effective Etsy shop, build great listings, take beautiful photos of your art, promote your store and much more...

This course is for artists who create 2D artwork, like Painters, Hand Letterers, Graphic Designers, Illustrators...etc. The course is structured into sections to make it easy to navigate the lectures. You can follow along on your own computer and we can build your shop together!

Why try and fumble your way through Etsy on your own? I am here to help you make your Etsy shop, the easy way.

Lets get started.
