Etsy

Etsy is an online business where you can sell what you want. Some of the people using the shop are full-time sellers, others are part-time, while the other group sale once-in-a-while. The key to using Etsy is to begin by reading their seller handbook. Before opening your store, you need to understand SEO, photography, and marketing. Then, after opening, you need to plan to put in the work that is required. You cannot just plop a picture of your item and, like magic, expect it to sell. You want to make sure your store is appealing to your customers. Etsy offers a great search tool for people to find you. If you are willing to put in the work, Etsy will help you to make a profit.
