5-Reasons-Why-You-Should-Open-An-Etsy-ShopHi Guys! I am super excited about sharing with everyone my top reasons why you need to open an Etsy shop in 2018. I hope that after reading this post, you will become excited about the opportunity of starting your own business.

I started my business on Etsy as a case study for my blog and my first year on Etsy after many trials and failures I made over 20K my first year without ever having the experience of selling or having an e-commerce store. I’ve made a priority to double my revenue for 2018 and help as many people as I can to achieve this type of success.

In today’s post, I will be going over my top 5 reasons why you should open an Etsy shop. Let’s begin!

Why open an Etsy shop?

  1. Joining and starting an Etsy shop is FREE. Unlike many other e-commerce stores, you will need to pay a fee to simply join. 
  2. Etsy is super simple to set up.  Etsy literally walks you through the setup process when adding your first listing. You will only need a prototype of your product, a catchy title, have a detail listing description, fill out your shop details, and set up your payment options, and you are all set. 
  3. The cost of setting up listings are relatively cheap compared to other e-commerce sites. The cost of setting up listings are relatively cheap compared to other e-commerce sites. Every time you upload a listing, there is a fee of .20 cents per listing. It will not break the bank when starting a business on Etsy. Also, if you join Etsy today using the link I have provided we both WIN! I receive 40 FREE listings and so will you!  Click here to get started!
  4. Advertising on Etsy is CHEAP. Promote your Etsy listing for as low as 1 cent per click. You can promote a single listing from your shop or all listings in your shop. 
  5. Get your money right away. Unlike other e-commerce platforms where you have to wait to get paid a month later, Etsy payments can be directly available for deposit the next business day. As a new shop owner, you will have a delay of 5 days hold on your payments. However, after your Etsy shop passes the 90-day period Etsy payments will become available for deposit the next business day.

    Very good article thanks for sharing this
    You have good knowledge about reasons behind Etsy shop

  2. How much money are you advertising on Etsy? I am thinking of opening up my own business, but I don’t have any clue on how much it would cost me? Also, what are the top selling products in Etsy?

    • Hi Paolo,

      Great question! I currently invest $10 a day with a click bid of 10 cents per clicks. Some days it doesn’t spend the entire $10, plus when you reduce your click bids your budget goes a long stretch. My top selling products have been the wedding items. I hope this helps!

    I’m looking forward to getting my Etsy shop open soon. In my research, I’ve been surprised by how easy it is to sell internationally on Etsy!

    Thanks for sharing this info.

    Hi Nancy – great article and video! I am doing my initial research on how to open up an Etsy shop and came across your site. Very helpful! Can you talk more about the taxes portion you mentioned in the video. Does Etsy keep track of finances and you pay the taxes through them? Or do you do it independently? Also, do you have your own software like quickbooks to track expenses/income? Thanks!

Hi, I'm Nancy.

I help Etsy sellers turn their passion into profits is a rewarding and fulfilling endeavor. Many sellers have great ideas and the drive to succeed, but they lack the knowledge and experience needed to start, manage, and scale their Etsy businesses effectively. As a business coach, I help Etsy sellers by teaching them the exact steps needed to turn their passion into a full-time income.
