Back in the olden days—youknow, circa 2004 or so—artists and craftspeople had to drag their portfolio and wares to galleries and craft shows, and popularity in the local market didn′t mean an end to your day job.

You′ll learn how to: Properly set up your Etsy shop and start listing your handmade goods Develop a good keyword and search engine optimization strategy Create compelling blog content to drive traffic to your Etsy shop Promote your brand through Facebook and Twitter In a world where nearly everything has been made by machine, the demand for handcrafted goods is growing.

At the time, I felt as if I had hit a pulse, a heartbeatinto Etsy. How right I was! Tim has been in the rightplace at the right time and has skyrocketed past all ofus! In flight, he brought me up to speed on the basics, startingwith copy/paste. We moved on to the ′how tos′ of blogging, virtual links, Google Analytics, and keywords for my Etsyshops to be on the top of the search engines, Facebook, Twitter,Handmadeology, and most important, linkingeverything back to Etsy. I am delighted for Tim′stremendous success, and, even more so, to call him′friend.′ "—Amy Lilley, Amy Lilley Photography (Etsy seller)

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.

useful little book for Etsy beginners; more experienced sellers may find it less helpful. A thorough review of Etsy selling.

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.

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.

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.

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.

This really walks you through the process of getting started on etsy, very well. I bought it when I was considering it as a place to sell my hand painted furniture. It helped me make an informed decision! (I didn't go ahead, but I felt I knew what etsy was about, and with a different product, I would have gone for it). Inspiring and really gives a feel for the community of etsy!
