From the Author
I hope that this book, The Handmade Entrepreneur, gives you the ability to create an Etsy shop (or website) worthy of marketing, shows you how to become a valuable figure in front of your target market, and ultimately enables you to turn your passion into profit.
Bought this book last night and stayed up til wee hours reading it...It was that good. Lots of good stuff in there. Would absolutely recommend this to any handmade artist! Lots of photos, clear explanations of how social media works, etc. I've purchases a few books on this subject and this is my favorite.
Mentions a lot of ideas but doesn't explain the actual step-by-step procedures for execution. For example it mentions "curating" a list in Pinterest but doesn't explain how one does this. I still haven't made a sale!
Downloaded to the Kindle app on my iPhone and can barely put it down to take a call😍. So much valuable information I am taking notes as I read and bookmarking several pages (grateful for this option!). Although I am only halfway through I have already implemented some of the suggestions. Know I will be busy over the next few weeks as I continue to learn more and improve my shop! Very straightforward and useful strategies, suggestions, tips and tools! I had read a few similar "setup" books prior to entering the Etsy marketplace and was disappointed by the common sense and easy to google answers provided. Dani Marie's The Handmade Entrepreneur is the #1 go to by far for anyone even thinking about getting into small e-commerce! Can't say enough good things about this book!
An excellent book by Dani Marie. This book covers a variety of topics to start your own handmade business online. It is explained in an easy to understand way and gets right to the point/topic. One of my favorite parts of the book is Dani's explanation of how to take professional looking photos to help your items sell. She provides real life photos from actual Etsy stores along with the links to visit those stores and see more examples of professional looking photos. At the end of the book there is an action plan outlined to help you take steps/actions to grow your business online. A very well done book.
Dani really knows what she is talking about when it comes to building a HANDMADE online business. Not only that but she doesn't fill her book with a lot of fluff. Every page has suggestions for what you can do to build your business. It takes a while to read because you keep stopping to do what she says but for that very reason it is AWESOMESAUCE! Definitely a must read for any person attempting to build a handmade online business.
This is one of the best entrepreneur books I've read. Dani provides practical business advice to establish and grow a handmade business. I love the step-by-step marketing guide at the end of the book. Thanks for also providing links and overviews for potential vendors/business partners. Great job with this book...looking forward to the next one.
I really love this book. It has a lot of practical advise and great marketing tips for a homemade business. I recommend taking notes as you read so you don't have to constantly go back and look. I don't sell on Etsy but this book has many great ideas in marketing for gaining a customer base that will actually buy from you.
Referred by Renae Christine, I purchased this as a eBook. I have two Etsy shops and both are in their baby stages. This book had a lot of information in it you won't really see mentioned anywhere else. The information that is common is broken down to be a little more understandable. Dani gives tips and explanations of why certain things are important. A good read for anyone starting out on Etsy.
