5.0 out of 5 stars Best how-to on etsy I've read 17 Jun 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
In my opinion, this book is superior to other Etsy how-to books out there. Really useful tips and practical ways forward. Other reviewers are sceptical as to how useful this might be for an expert and perhaps they are right, but I am a beginner on etsy and am finding this very helpful.

5.0 out of 5 stars Excellent 14 July 2011
Format:Paperback
I got this book as I am a newish seller on etsy (soeweyarns) and I needed some help. Yes Etsy has a handbook but I can't take it down the beach with me. It's been written in plain English, very clear with lots of screen shots so you know what you should see. I have learnt so much and I'm only a 1/4 of the way through the book. A must have for any etsy seller.

5.0 out of 5 stars Essential reading 27 Dec 2011
Format:Paperback|Verified Purchase
Although this book is mostly written for the U.S market, it translates well for the U.K market.
Having said that, I have not read it cover-to-cover but, what I have read seems to make sense to me.
If you are going to open an Etsy shop, consider this essential reading.

4.0 out of 5 stars Decent book 13 Feb 2012
Format:Paperback
This was a good book. It has the basics about how to get started and a good section about how to make the most of search engines on the site. My only criticism would be that I found the screen shots a bit on the small side which meant the text on them wasn't easy to read.

2.0 out of 5 stars Google Replacement 11 Mar 2012
By Sarah T
Format:Paperback
It's not bad, but every bit of information in this book, you could find inside one page of Google results. This advice is all over Etsy/craft/artist blogs and is not hard to come by - indeed, I'd read it all before, and I hadn't even been making a big effort to look it up.

Maybe if you're not proficient at using the internet (if so, why would you be opening an Etsy shop or hoping to make it successful?) or you really want what amounts to a tiny bit of convinience, this book could be for you. For me, it was just nothing new.
