The Ultimate Guide To Selling on Etsy

It is straightforward to get started selling on Etsy. Setting up a shop is completely free and can quickly be done in an evening.

We recommend taking the time to fully fill out your profile with information about you and your shop, as this lets buyers know that a real person is making and selling the products.

The first step to listing your products for sale on Etsy is taking eye-catching photos. Online shopping is a visual experience, and taking professional, well-lit images will get your shop started on the right foot.

Listing Your Products on Etsy

Start by investing in a simple lighting setup and background, or choose a well-lit area of your home. South and West facing windows in your home receive the best light during the day and can make for a great place to take your photos.

Taking Amazing Photos for Etsy

The power of Etsy as an online marketplace for sellers is the sheer number of buyers searching for products every day. The best way to harness this power is to create product listings using keywords that buyers are actively searching for.

Create Searchable Listing Titles

Creating a searchable listing doesn't end at the product title. Writing a relevant, keyword-focused product description is another way to make sure potential buyers find your products.

Write Customer-focused Product Descriptions

Customers looking for a ceramic mug may search for coffee mug, ceramic mug handmade, ceramic mug no handle, ceramic mug set, etc. These are all excellent terms to sprinkle throughout your product description.

Using Keywords in Your Description

The search bar is a great place to start with ideas and, once your shop has been up and running for a while, Etsy provides a ton of data on what shoppers searched for when they found your listings.
