Start with eBay and Etsy they already have traffic and only take a commission per sale VS you constantly spending on advertisements to get traffic to your own website

If you have skills in woodwork I would definitely make some wooden gifts and sell them on Etsy & Ebay. If you can personalise them even better. You could make a wooden wine rack, chopping boards, bird houses, shelving, storage box to hold baby toys or dog toys etc.

In my opinion building everything from the ground up with a shoe string budget will give you well rounded foundational knowledge, provide you tangible results you can use in interviews and test your creative problem solving.

For example, my start into marketing came from necessity. I just accepted a part time job for a brand new cell phone repair company. He couldn't afford to work me full time so I did some digital art on the said and tried to sell it on Etsy and local farmers markets.

I photographed all of my art, curated my page and researched what SEO was. Eventually I came to my boss and showed him what I was doing on the side and suggested we do a little digital marketing to attract new customers. I optimized his website and crafted a PPC campaign after watching some videos on Udemy.

I was doing graphic design with Photoshop and InDesign, social media marketing on Facebook, Snapchat and Waze and website design. We did all of it on a few dollars a day. It was important to get high levels of CTR and conversion while closely tracking ROI to be as efficient as possible with our budget.

Eventually it worked, I thought the owner everything I was doing in our marketing campaign and used the website, sales data and advertisement designs to springboard into a professional marketing career. Eventually I took those skills and used them to drive sales in my own business. Now I own my own B2B business with a few dozen employees.

If you can afford to start you own website and try to drive traffic via social media marketing, SEO, and PPC, on a tiny budget. I feel you'll learn more about business finance, project management and graphic design. I also believe you'll think more like a business owner than a cog in the marketing department.

I don’t agree with reselling crap, no.. but you are making some awfully large assumptions here, take a chill pill.

I do sell on Etsy. Not because I need to, my hobby is relaxing and Etsy lets me break even on it.

I also sell tools and the individual components that go into my pieces so that if someone wants to try making something similar themselves they can.

Guess how those components get to my customers? Drop shipped from my manufacturer, and before you say it, the components are American made and very good quality.

They don't. If the vasf majority don't make much, then a randow dude has next to no chance of succeeding. Those that make money tend to already have a business, with Etsy being an add-on. Selling random shit with little effort doesn't work.

It's good to know that most don't make money, as you can use that to inform your decision. Too many on here just want to make easy money with minimal work.

There is literally no workforce left in the US. There are "help wanted" signs everywhere and even corporations have a hard time retaining talent. Everyone is trading stocks and using the money to open stupid etsy shops or just relax and enjoy being alive.

Homeboy. there are currently more people working jobs than at any point in the US history. More jobs in the US are currently filled than job before the pandemic did whatever it did to the job market.

https://www.bls.gov/web/empsit/cpseea01.htm

In Colorado there were 3,110,000 job positions filled at the end of 2019, there are currently 3,278,000 job positions filled. And there are still "help wanted" signs out on everything, just like there were in 2019.

Thanks for the insight, i like what you say. What factor does the pandemic and having had rillions injected into the economy be a huge factor in depth? So many small businesses that started throughout the Pandemic that won’t be able to survive, or businesses that barely survived the pandemic and now aren’t in a position to face a recession? All those people who are full time selling on AMZN, or Etsy, or Shop, that’s just a few. The whole craze during the pandemic was “start your own business”. I didn’t think of this till now when thinking about gauging depth.

Frank. Do what it recommends. And do what the first guy said about adding very specific keywords.

Also, ads work but the budget needs to be manipulated regularly to fuck with the algo. Of your item is selling, they will show it more.

Also, once you have a good clip of sales on an item, don't change the listing copy or any of the keywords or rags. Add better pictures to increase conversion from the already existing traffic....more sales equals more exposure since Etsy gets their commission etc.

I've been selling on Etsy since 2017. One of my stores is in the top 0.1% of all shops on Etsy based on Erank's statistics (and I hope they provide true info)) with over 1M in sales in 1 year and 6 months (I'll can attach screenshots but I don't know why it don't leave me here to post links ). I don't consider myself an expert but over the years thought lot of trials and fails I've learned how Etsy's algorithm works. You can make the first step yourself : Use long tail and short tail. Use it as first keyword in the Title and first in the Tags. Make sure you find the best keyword that describes your product and is very specific - not broad.
Understand this: if someone is looking for "wall decor" means he is looking for ideas, inspiration and he have nothing specific in mind, he is just surfing... when someone is looking "gold metal sigs wall decor" means this customers know what he wants he just needs to choose from options available and of course you want to rank for this keyword and that's why you use it first in tags and title.
PS: don't stuck on keywords too much thinking that this is the only thing that will get you sales but is a first step that you can done yourself. There are a lot more important details that needs attention to have a successful Etsy/online business.
For Etsy SEO recommendation I will recommend from my heart Ehab_makram from FIVERR he do an absolutely amazing job and he is a old and reputable member there.

The performance of e-Commerce stocks has been disastrous this year. Popular stocks like Shopify, Etsy and Chewy are down 50-80% in the last 1 year.

Even Amazon’s e-Commerce sales are struggling, down 4% in Q2-22 - the stock has fared better compared to other e-Commerce companies, due to its very impressive AWS Cloud business.

Its no secret that e-Commerce saw an unprecedented increase during Covid-lockdown times. Looking at the above chart, in US, e-Commerce retail sales jumped from $160B in Q1-20 to $211B in Q2-20, a 32% jump in one quarter.

Over the last 2 years, even as lockdown conditions eased, total e-Commerce sales has continued to grow, @~10.4% annualized, even from the higher base in Q2-20.

Its unrealistic to expect e-Commerce to maintain growth figures from 2020 (which was an exceptional year), but the long-term growth story looks intact.

I'm in a lot of marketing groups and I've only seen a couple of people that have branded themselves as Etsy SEO experts. I've done a little SEO keyword optimization for Teacher Pay Teacher sites/pages. But most of the information I used was from SEO work I already do and just googling answers. There are some great blog articles and YouTube videos that can give you tips and pointers.

Congrats on launching your Etsy store, I wish all the best.

Now to answer your question, yeah they are legit. As in you get what you paid for, you wouldn’t get scammed (hopefully)

Now a days SMM panels offer many services and for what you said you need, tiktok and Instagram. There are many that offer SMM services. I have personally used panels for my businesses (2 Etsy stores, 1 eBay store and my online furniture store) and they have been really helpful to get you off the ground. It’s not a needed services however it is very handy to accelerate the beginning of your Social media marketing.

Currently I use this website here and there (top-growth) which have been solid. Only reason I choose them over some others is mainly because they take Apple Pay. Not a dealbreaker but some don’t accept card payments.

I’d say personally, try it out for yourself and see how it goes, just don’t got overboard.

All the best!

i exclusively sold print on demand on etsy, with some digital offerings for almost year. did well, but shut it down. the etsy community makes selling anything at all the furthest thing from passive

once i started looking to hire people just to deal with the countless queries every day single day, i shut the shop down.

shoppers who buy on etsy want a hands on experience, and to feel special, and heavily catered to. it's the nature of their clientele.

More than $5,000 is excessive, but I'd recommend limiting yourself to $1,000, because it's not about the money. You need distribution to buyers who will pay for the kind of products you make. The best way to do this is a marketplace like etsy or buying ads on online forums related to what you're doing.

Really though you should be able to get your first 20 customers just through your personal network. If you cannot, you probably need to meet more people who are into buying that kind of stuff by getting involved in communities related to it. When you start selling, you want to get sales and payment up front - BEFORE you make and product or buy supplies.

It can be kind of stressful, so just make sure you set expectations correctly with your clients about delivery and tell them you will communicated with them at a predetermined time about your order (so they don't message you 24x7 until their order arrives).

The easiest way to manage risk is to not spend any money on the business. Sell, get orders and then go buy supplies, make the product & fulfill.

I really appreciate it! This is my first business and I've gone through a rebrand and actually started putting in real effort. My first website was embarrassing so i had to change it up.

I run my website through shopify, so I just use their shipping service. Though, I never get sales through my website currently. All of my sales are coming from etsy as of now. Hoping to change that soon!

For a small, farmer's market type operation, yes, Zettle/PayPal or Square are great options. QuickBooks isn't free, but it does integrate with most everything under the sun.

Consider building a website with Square instead of Shopify if you go with the Square POS. There's nothing wrong with Shopify, but Square integrates better with its own systems.

Shopify also has its own POS. Works basically the same way as the PayPal and Square systems. Shopify offers their own payment processor called Shopify Payments.

Last time I checked, Etsy requires you to use their own payment processor called Etsy Payments.

PayPal, Square, Etsy Payments, and Shopify Payments are something called "payment aggregators." They're great for starter businesses, but once you start to take more than $10k/month, you can look for something called "merchant account providers" to lower your processing costs. Only Shopify will let you connect to your own merchant account provider. So, if you ever expect your business to grow beyond $10k/month, I think going with Shopify and using Shopify Payments might be worth considering.

If you're curious about the difference between payment aggregators and merchant account providers, here's an article that explains payment processing in general (you have to scroll down a bit to get to the part about different types of payment processors). Payment processing is sort of a complicated business with a lot of jargon. The article is a quick explainer article.

Yes, I've been starting a few low risk side gigs hoping one or more will pan out to offer coast FIRE potential with minimal work.

I've started doing some Amazon FBA selling, which is relatively low risk if you pick the right type of products and do your research (The 2 products I sell don't sell many units, but the ROI is over 100% if I keep my price lower than competitors and as I build a brand and get better reviews, I can raise the price even higher).

I also have been playing around with custom woodworking and selling at local fairs and on Etsy. My work has a maker space that I use as needed, so I build things in my garage cutting boards and wall signs and customize them w/ the CNC router at the maker space (maybe if I make enough I can get one for the house).

The first I do because it's pretty much entirely online and can be done from anywhere, so if I wanted to retire, I can possibly do minimal "work" and keep income flowing in. Additionally, if you build an FBA brand with proven sales and suppliers and such, there are companies that specialize in purchasing existing FBA brands, so down the line you could sell your business for like $50k-$500k if you need or want to cash out.

The second one I do because I like to build things and work with wood, so that one only makes a little bit of money, but I'm also only doing it super part time, so if I can build a brand slowly, in the next 10 years when I look to retire from my 9-5, I can put more time into my hobbies and maybe earn a little out of it in the meantime.

If you have been making them for years, don't you already have tools? If so I can't imagine materials would cost much either if they are miniatures. I'd make a handful and try putting a page up on etsy and see how it goes. I wouldn't invest more than $100 or $200 to be honest to see how it goes.

Thanks for replying. I don't make the items myself but partner with a forge. I do any wood engraving, or black annealing on sword blades here in my home town. So we add a level of customization that is fairly unique.

My profit margin on swords is average around $200, axes $100. The higher end swords I'm closer to $300 profit, which isn't bad, but for an $1,100 Viking sword, I don't know if $300 is great profit. But I also don't want to rip anyone off.

Other than reddit, I have no social media because I hate it with a passion. I recognize the folly in my thinking because I'm missing out on marketing opportunities. I've tried FB ads in the past with no luck and FB, as well as Pinterest, hate weapons, even hand forged collector weapons. Both have taken my posts down in the past for no reason.

99% of my sales are on my Etsy page. Once in a while I run Etsy ads for $1 a day. That will sometimes get an order or two a month. My actual website is a disaster and hardly gets any views and no orders, I keep it there just to look a bit more professional. I designed it myself, so by industry standard I'm sure it's lacking.

I think one of the main turn offs for the average customer is that it can sometimes take 2 to 3 months for a sword to be completed. I don't keep any in stock and forge them on order. So my main customer base is serious collectors, or reenactors who want a custom, unique weapon and understand it takes some time to create. We use high carbon steel, real leather, and don't mass produce anything.

All in all I don't know squat about business and just go in blindly, seeing what will happen. Other than Etsy ads I don't advertise, so that doesn't help. But not understanding Google and FB ads it pretty much turns out poorly when I do.

I enjoy working with the customers and believe in great customer service. Thats where I think I really shine.

Metal Abyss is my business name.

Sorry for the long reply. Thanks for taking time out of your day to respond.

I have had successfully Etsy shops in the past. Like others have stated, Etsy gets lots of traffic. With that said, Etsy is not the same as it used to be and many small shops are failing and leaving everyday. When you list an item, Etsy will suggest that you offer free shipping or the chances of selling your item will be slim to none. With the cost of shipping on the rise, this is not always feasible. Building shipping into the price of your item doesn't always work either as it puts your items $5 - $10 more expensive than your competitors (which can be corporations sometimes). If you are really serious about what you do, I would recommend starting a legitimate website and learning everything you can about SEO as well as utilizing social media and Google marketing opportunities. If you are passionate about what you do and have solid branding, you will be successful.

DCA will always win out. Every great investor says the timing will bite you in the ass.

I say this as someone who bought GME at $10 pre run up. It was blind luck and not based on any amount of skill.

You keep that consistency up and bringing your averages down and you will reap rewards (shout out to CELH, BRK.B, ETSY and AXON which I all made tons on doing this)

Would I quality for the URS Home Office Deduction? I currently offer web design services, as well as selling on ebay/etsy/amazon. I have a small office where I do all my computer work, as well as using my garage for storage/packing of items I sold. My only concern is I do not do any in-person meetings at my house, but I do a ton of emails/zoom calls due to the pandemic.

I read through this: https://www.irs.gov/businesses/small-businesses-self-employed/home-office-deduction

Based on what I provided do you guys think I would meet the criteria to utilize this deduction?

Hey! With our small team we're developing a high tech startup. Not exactly an online store but we're spending lots of time on social media looking for partners and posting expert content and some of our team mates have online shops background, so maybe my thoughts will be helpful :) they're mostly on promoting side but still

  1. Think about branding. Your store's name, your colour palette, your image – the catchier your image is the better feedback you get. And once you have a clear image think of a strategy to promote your store.
  2. Choose a platform. You may sell through Instagram or Etsy or even Ebay – just learn all the pros and cons of every platform.
  3. Consider posting a lot about your shop on social media. Depending on what product you have for sale of course but show it a lot so people know what your offer is. Media buzz is important. And if your content goes viral that's a free promo that can bring your first clients.
  4. You talked about crossover markets. That also works for social platforms. Ex. if you selling through your website make sure the link to it is placed on each of your platforms.
  5. Consider targeted ads – that tool helped our team a lot. Not only to attract attention but to get first clients too. In the beginning you don't have to have a big budget just a little to attract first followers.
  6. Learn how you will work with logistics and technical side of the process. Maybe read others' experience on leading an online store.

Thats a little advice but maybe it will help a bit!

As a consumer there are a lot of things that I go straight to Etsy and don't even consider other options. For niche or hand made products, Etsy is the top of the food chain for me.

However, my wife has tried selling on Etsy before and it can be a tough market. Really is like being a small fish in the sea unless you are exceptional. I wouldn't go all in, but it's definitely worth trying with your best sellers.

This is dependent on the amount of money you have decided to invest. Start with Etsy if you have at least $5,000. Get some one-of-a-kind items, hire a copywriter, and begin selling on Etsy.
This is the most risk-free and stress-free option. You only need to concentrate on the products that you can obtain.
On Etsy, I believe one of my friends was selling marble chess boards, but I'm not sure. However, he made a lot of money from that single idea.

Yes but you can also make your own t shirt company with almost no effort for way bigger profits.

Places like Etsy make it so they make and ship the shirts, all u do is give them a design. You’ll make way more money doing it this way than selling a design to a random company.

I would start in the US while you can and then increase your offering once demand increases. TikTok is by far the easiest way to grow a following now and if you have good product, it’ll be easy to make trendy videos for it. Especially something like jewelry.

You could look into partnering with micro influencers to start and have them help spread awareness of your brand.

Where do you plan on selling? Solely through your website? Or will you be on something like Etsy or Amazon for example? Amazon partners with a ton of influencers and they always have Amazon storefronts. This could be a good way for your brand to gain more recognition.

You can sell your designs online via Fiverr just to get started, and etsy too! Start a website, blog, vlog about your process and give away free advice to fashion students, designers etc. On my little vlog I interviewed an Entrepreneur who is on course to turnover a billion and he did just that - giving our free advice Start a Multimillion Dollar Business with No Money

Best of luck 🤞

Found this site from a quick search. https://www.ritani.com/products/2-79-carat-pear-lab-diamond-very-good-cut-h-color-vs1-clarity-igi-lg524211143-sku-d-3z8hep6rif

This is not bad priced too https://www.brilliantearth.com/lab-diamonds-search/view_detail/15856909/

There should be lots of cheap vendors on etsy too.

I would find a cheap stone that has high clarity and then goto Leon Mege and get the most amazing ring in the world made. He's the absolute best.

I spent 25k on my first ten years ago for a small diamond and less than 6k all in with a huge rock recently. Went with Leon both times.

Prices are dropping so fast that anyone who bought a ring more than 1 year ago already has outdated info I would think.

Some random perspective: I could afford 3-5k pretty comfortably but my now wife found a very modest ring on Etsy for $500 and loves it.

I read you’re on the same page so if she does want a ring at a higher price point no worries. Just don’t feel compelled for it to be a minimum value to show you care or are committed.

Just buy a $200 ring from Etsy.

Spend 5-7k on a vacation or a down payment on a house or something if you want to blow it.

I think they might be on Facebook and Insta! If you aren't tied with a certain brand niche and can do branding for anyone interested, these 2 platforms might work for you just right since there're a lot of young entrepreneurs that might look for someone to help with brand's decoration :)
Another idea that came to mind is Etsy and similar platforms for small shops. It's a manual work at some point but you can promote yourself just by sending some shops your info and asking whether they're interested in branding.

Some of it comes down to exactly what you want out of the ring, and what “getting the most out” means to you. As others have mentioned, getting a used ring can get you more “ring” (more precious stone/metal) for your dollar, but if you want something more personal, you could look at a place like Etsy, where a lot of smaller jewelers sell pieces.

Would definitely try out getting a table at the market. It's a low cost entry point and you will be able to watch in real time what people are interested in. Make mental notes of what people are looking at the most / buying.

Next step would be to try this on Etsy as well, there will be more competition, but if you have unique designs that stand out, it won't matter.

Also tiktok. Make videos of you making things and post them.

I sell products and find that consistent posting to Instagram, FB, etc. and Google and Etsy ads work pretty well for me

Fees will be much higher with a website. If etsy fees are too high for you, you probably don't have a viable business.

Yeah true, I’ll buy on Etsy around the holidays sometimes. Usually know to give them lead time but it definitely is a factor - many sellers (at least over last few years) gave a disclaimer they couldn’t guarantee arrival by a certain date which was a no-go. I guess it is a trade-off with craft sellers; I’m a bit of a hard-ass and some of them have been able to manage their inventory and lead times well and some of them haven’t. I tend to gravitate towards the former.

Why not just sell them yourself using Shopify or Squarespace or Etsy or something?

Yeah, avoid the actual $ question. Thats what I thought. You're a fraud as anticipated and likely do a fraction of the revenue i did. An etsy store making you 10k/yr with no employees, staff, or connections isnt an uber successful business. Enjoy your "success"

So many fake wannabes on reddit offering horrific advise. The worst part is new kids can't see thru frauds like you and take that shit to heart and end up learning the hard way. Scumbag move kid

I started my sticker business on Etsy in December 2021 and wanted to share it with you 🙂

Would totally love it if you would spare a minute and take a look at it 😊

They are all die cut, printed with a high quality ink jet printer on matte finished sticker paper.

Shipping is international ✈️

I work in healthcare so I've seen the most toxic workplaces and worst managers. I figured they set the bar pretty low.

There's something about business processes, systems, and workplace culture that fascinates me. To me it's not about money or being the boss, rather I like to figure things out and solve problems.

I don't wanna start a business to run things. I wanna map out every system, document it, write the policies, standard operating procedures, etc. I wanna discover problems and weaknesses, then get staff to collaborate and work on a solution.

It's a pipedream at this point. I have a few ideas, but I'm broke and drowning in debt. I figure after my wife finishes with her bookkeeping certificate maybe we can scrounge up a little cash and start something small, even if it's just selling stuff on Etsy or Amazon.

Your main concern should be are the products safe, stable and do you have proof?

Are there any restricted ingredients in them? Do you have a product information file for each product? Which includes a cosmetic product safety support that has all information, specifications and tests relating to the raw materials, finished product, packaging etc. As well as a description of the method of manufacturing with an accompanying certificate or statement of compliance showing that you're complying with "good manufacturing practice".

That pretty much covers the legal side, more info here if need https://www.gov.uk/guidance/making-cosmetic-products-available-to-consumers-in-great-britain#what-a-responsible-person-does

Business insurance is an obvious must. For suppliers, you can use google, order samples from multiple suppliers and compare as to what fits your needs. Just make sure the suppliers are safe and certified.

Yes its easier to create an Etsy store and the main benefit is that your store is available to its millions of users but you will not have full control, you will not be able to build up an email list and you will be at the mercy of Etsy if they decide to shut down your account for whatever reason. With a standalone website you have full control, less fees, higher customer retention, content marketing etc but understandably it will take more time and effort to build trust and get your name out there. I would start on Etsy and Amazon while your work on the website in the background.

Multi Vendor Marketplaces. So a person/business opens their own “shop” and sells their products on the website. Like Amazon or Etsy…

Freedom. I just turned 40 and quit a very high paying job to do my version of retire early - which is a combination of farming, selling my creations on Etsy, and reselling on Ebay. I was doing this while still working a regular job which caused me to be gone 11 hours per day. Hubby quit, too, and is now welding and fabbing in his shop at our farm. We get up when we want to and work whenever we want to. We made sure to pay off all debt prior to quitting. Having this freedom is absolutely amazing.

Passive income doesn't mean no effort either though. Some things just need some upfront effort. Even on Etsy, you could make digital products like templates or printable pages (e.g. a page of bookmarks, coloring pages, planner paged, etc) that you upload then can mostly set and forget other than occasionally checking to see if anyone has any questions/feedback/etc.

For the print on demand, I thought it was like make art prints or something then have them on a drop shipping site like Spreadshirt that people can order off of. More hands off after the initial efforts
