Made Me Think of My Etsy Store In a Whole New Way, March 11, 2011 By Kari Esparza
  This review is from: How to Make Money Using Etsy: A Guide to the Online Marketplace for Crafts and Handmade Products
(Paperback) I've been selling knitted items on Etsy for over a year now, but only recently started getting serious about it. Sales
have come in, but they are slow. I wanted to do something to get more buyers. It's just that Etsy has grown to be so big now,
unless you're luckly enough to be featured on the main page, your store can get buried (and mine was buried). So, I bought this
book and also Etsy Success - How to Make a Full-Time Income Selling Jewelry, Crafts, and Other Handmade Products Online
to get ideas on how to get the word out.The author takes an "internet marketing" approach to the advice he gives. Basically, he
has taken the things that have worked for successful internet marketers (who sell ebooks and other products) and shows you
how to apply them to your Etsy store. This was a new approach I hadn't thought of.There's a lot of mention of SEO (search
engine optimization) but it wasn't...

Six Stars For This Book - Must Have for Beginner or Seasoned Etsy Seller Worth It's Weight in Gold, March 25, 2011 By Ira
Mency (Danforth, Maine)
This review is from: How to Make Money Using Etsy: A Guide to the Online Marketplace for Crafts and Handmade Products
(Paperback) I've been selling on Etsy for awhile; and I'm a vintage seller. I'd like to think by reading the Storque and all of Etsy's
updates that I would know everything there is to know. I bought this book because I knew anyone as successful as marketing
guru Tim Adams, may have something worth reading. I can't tell you how glad I am that I did. I quickly realized how much it was
I didn't know and probably never would have known if it wasn't for this book.It has far exceeded my expectations.The book is
loaded with how-to diagrams and screen shots, so that you can understand every step of what Tim is talking about. It's not just
about selling on Etsy, that's a big part of it but it's loaded with simple tips and tricks that you can use to market your shop and
gain more exposure. It talks about trending, finding your market niche, blogging, and SEO. Basically, it's marketing techniques
that are proven to work. Put it this way, I also bought a SEO/marketing book not too...

Didn't help me but maybe others..., May 12, 2011 By Deborah Price "Artlady" (Oklahoma)
     This review is from: How to Make Money Using Etsy: A Guide to the Online Marketplace for Crafts and Handmade Products
(Paperback) If you are wanting to set up an Etsy shop, this book would be very helpful. If you already have an Etsy shop, you
can get much of this information through their newsletters. I'm not very good with computers and I had my shop up and running
in no time. Sales have been great following the advice in the newsletters. I really expected this book to give me more ideas to
link different social sites to my Etsy shop. The section on Facebook was useless. The pictures he has you refer to are too dark
to even be able to see. It was very confusing. Another thing that really annoyed me with this book was the editing. Or should I
say, lack of editing. There were way too many words misused or repeated twice, etc. This is something that is very distracting to
me.What I liked most about the book were the interviews with Etsy shop owners. Those were very interesting.So, I gave this a
four star only because it would be great for someone just starting out.
