Etsy Shop Updates - are they worth it? Etsy shop updates are kind of like that girl who showed up at your party, even though you didn’t invite her…none of us were expecting her and we’re all a bit annoyed about it. But instead of just rejecting shop updates all together, I decided to put aside my elitist Etsy temperament for a minute, and try rooting for the underdog. So, for one week (against my better judgement...) I tried to make friends with shop updates. Let’s see what happened!
Etsy SEO Bootcamp - Creative people love to overlook logistical things. I’m talking about all those little things that will “get done eventually”. And it’s the technical bits that we tend to leave for last…”I’ll do it when I absolutely need it” — that’s the excuse I usually hear. Well guess what: You NEED SEO. Every day you wait, you’re losing sales and customers. Now and forever, SEO is literally the ONLY way for Etsy to figure out what you’re selling. And if Etsy doesn’t understand your shop, they’ll never show it to a single customer. (Neither will Google, for that matter!)

Holy shit. If I hear one more back and forth on Facebook groups about what "is" and "is not" happening with Etsy SEO, I'm going to MOVE to the Upside Down and never f*cking come back. SERIOUSLY GUYS. The SEO talk on Facebook is 99% speculation. It's fed to you by people who heard something from somebody who thinks they understand SEO. Let me just break this down for you: Would you take business advice from a guy who knows a guy that can get you some customers??? HELL. NO. That is some shady shit. So why are you doing EXACTLY that when you listen to rumors in Facebook groups??? With the exception of Page Six, very few successful businesses are built on the rock solid pillar of GOSSIP. This disturbing AF trend is happening all over the Internet right now, so I'm gonna tell you STRAIGHT: This is what you need to know about Etsy SEO in 2018.

MUST-KNOW ETSY HACKS:

The second you started selling online, this weird thing you’d never heard of before suddenly became the center of your life. It’s called SEO and you’re not even 100% sure what it stands for.

Make 6-figure sales on Etsy: Lately, I’ve noticed a trend among my fellow Etsy sellers. When they aren’t making sales at the high five or six figure level, they’re positive that something’s WRONG. These sellers think they’re missing some magic piece of the puzzle… or they’re wondering if their item just isn’t capable of driving serious sales. And most of them say they’re one bad day away from throwing in the towel. But the reality is this: you don’t just open an online store and making 6 figures (or even FIVE figures). If selling online were that easy, EVERYONE would be doing it! Learn what it REALLY takes!

Why I Curse on My Blog: And How it Got Me the Best Readers Ever
As far as google thinks, I’m the first blogger to publish an income report specifically for my Etsy shop. And believe me: I’m scared shitless about it. It’s creepy to share your finances online. It pretty much violates every financial commandment handed down to me by my (stereotypically Jewish) parents…but I promise you, I have a higher purpose: I’m sick of giving advice about Etsy success when you can’t visibly see how that advice is working for me.

Etsy Tasks - The whole Internet is busy telling you to ADD SHIT to your to-do list right now. Let’s just raise a big fat middle finger to that. Because you don’t have time to add MORE to your life. If anything, we all need a hell of a lot LESS. Last year, I decided to simplify my business. My motto became “Keep it Simple, Stupid”…and I did a HUGE business purge. I got rid of EVERYTHING that wasn’t making serious dollar signs. And to my complete and utter shock, my bank account didn’t die a flaming death. My business didn’t come crashing down, and my life didn’t spontaneously combust. HUH?? Instead, when I decided to CUT THE FAT out of my biz, I actually created the most PROFITABLE year I’ve ever had. Learn how to make it happen for YOUR biz in this article! Click to read.
