4.0 out of 5 stars Good resource, could be improved March 27, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I am considering selling on Etsy so I gave this book special attention.

It is very easy to read, everything is explained in a logical sequence so you can follow it when establishing your Etsy store.
The book covers all the major points: is Etsy right for somebody, establishing identity, setting up a shop, marketing and providing customer service. It saves some time to do the research.

I found the part on market research to be really useful and I think this is the most important part before you even start thinking of selling something.

I like that the emphasis is put on establishing an identity, because it is today very hard to be visible and remembered with so many sellers on Etsy. Still, in that chapter, I would have preferred the author to list all the items one needs to design and create to have an essential group of own branded items (for example, invoice is nowhere mentioned). Some of the items can be found in another part of the book, it is just that it would be useful to have it all in one place so that one can have a to do list immediately.

The chapter on setting up a shop is quite detailed and I like that the author is making you aware of a cost structure when pricing your own products.

The chapter on marketing is OK because it lists the tools you can use. You can quickly see what are the tools you are familiar with (for example Facebook) and what are the tools you need to learn more about. However, here I would like to see more examples from author's experience - how quickly did she gain following on Facebook, or Twitter, or is she only listing her own items on Pinterest, for example.

And I loved the final chapter on customer service, because it is really important.

5.0 out of 5 stars A powerfully written book! April 21, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have read many books on the subject of Etsy...but this one is by far the most simplistic teaching on the usage and understanding of how to become an Etsy seller. If you are trying to determine which book to buy on this subject buy this book you won't regret it. This book is priceless its the best source of information that I've encountered thus far about Etsy.

5.0 out of 5 stars Great simple explanations and advice. April 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
I have often toyed with the idea of selling my crafts on Etsy but didn't want to get started off on the wrong foot and end up discouraged with the result. This short and sweet book has taken my apprehension away!!

Ms. Reynolds does an excellent job covering the process from a raw idea to top-notch customer service. She thoroughly explains how to do the research to determine if you have a product that might sell and how to determine price points including the dreaded shipping and handling costs.

From this book I learned: 1) how to do market research; 2) how to price my product; 3) how to set up a professional looking cohesive store brand; 4) how to market though several methods to increase traffic to my Etsy store; 5) how to provide top-notch customer service to people you never meet face-to-face.

I have downloaded many free books on my Kindle and always was happy to say I am glad I didn't pay. This information in this book would have been worth actually purchasing.

Although the first chapter or two are pretty good, the rest just barely skim the surface of any information she's talking about. I learned very little in the back half of the book. For the price, I guess I got what I paid for.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent advice July 6, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition
An excellent book! Very well written, easy to understand for those who want to start their business but are stuck in the "how do I do this" phase. I now feel confident that I CAN do this!

I read the whole book in one sitting but will be using it to reference the step by step details to get my business off the ground. Thank you Elyse for sharing and may you have continued success in your endeavors.

1.0 out of 5 stars Good thing the book was free... September 26, 2013
Format:Kindle Edition|Verified Purchase
Etsy has been around long enough that I was hoping for something a bit better than the Etsy Sellers Handbook regurgitated in kindle form. This should only be a free book because etsy offers all this info for free on the website.
