Reasons to Start an Etsy Shop this Summer

by

Summer is quickly approaching (finally and YAY!) and there’s no better time to start an Etsy shop.

If you don’t know my story – I started my Etsy shop in 2013 with a handful of items and little clue what I was doing. I made my first sale within 24 hours and went on to sell over $1,300 my very first month! You can read the story of how I got started right here.

I quickly realized the potential of turning my hobby into an online business. Now, over five years later, I get to work in my business full time (I’m the boss, I get to create every day, and I no longer dread Mondays!) AND get to help other people do the same.

So, why should you start an Etsy shop right now?

The Time is Now

Well, this isn’t seasonal but – there’s no better time to get started than today. It has nothing to do with summer and everything to do with jumping in. The sooner you begin, the sooner you can make the mistakes (yep, it’s going to happen), grow the business, and reach success.

Maybe you have dreams of working for yourself, like I did, or maybe you just want to have some extra spending money for a fun summer vacation. Whatever your motivation, there is no reason to wait.

I know that sometimes the hardest part can be getting started, so I put together some tips on overcoming the overwhelm of where to even begin. Check out the post here!

Etsy is Constantly Growing

You might think that there’s no way someone like you could break into the Etsy platform. You might think there’s just “too much competition” or “not enough business to go around”. Wrong, my friend! Yes, the number of shops and products on Etsy continues to grow, but so does the number of buyers.

I’m selling a product to which there are currently over 400,000 results when searched. That number continues to grow daily, but somehow I’m doing just fine! Keep in mind that there is no other you – on Etsy or on this planet. You have something unique and special to offer. Find that something and you’re on your way to becoming unstoppable!

It’s Easy to Begin

I’m an Etsy advocate because it was the platform where my business started. It was the platform that allowed my business to grow and the platform that eventually allowed me to quit my job and pursue creating full time.

The platform is truly such an amazing place for people just beginning their online sales journey. They make it easy – everything is organized in one place for you. The cost of setting up and maintaining a shop is low – it’s a win/win/win!

There are even more reasons why I think you should consider selling on Etsy. Check them out here!
