Saturday

This workshop is held on two Saturdays.
Many people who first start an Etsy shop are overwhelmed by the process. With over 5 million active sellers on Etsy, the competition is very large and making a small mistake in the setting up process can make a huge difference in being found by potential buyers.

This two-day workshop covers the process of
1. Designing a shop page (selecting a shop name, branding techniques, designing a shop banner and more)
2. Photographing and creating videos for products (editing, backgrounds, inside tips and tricks)
3. Creating product listings (using drafts, E-rank, and how to monitor shop stats)
4. Using social media for free advertising (heavy emphasis on Instagram)
5. Free tools to help in all this

All students will receive a class notebook with additional tips and will also serve to organize the information given during the workshop. Please note you must bring your own laptop computer for this course, and be comfortable using it.
