Etsy March 14 (Storm Day: March 21) from 9am-12:30pm (morning session) or 1:30-4pm (afternoon session) Location: New Brunswick College of Craft and Design, Room 3008 No Fee for Participation Instructor: TBA

This workshop will be in two parts. Participants can opt to come for the whole day or simply attend the afternoon portion. The morning workshop will consist of creating an Etsy profile, and covers the basics of setting up a store. Participants are required to bring images and descriptions of at least 3 pieces of work that they want to sell on Etsy. This part of the workshop helps participants get through the set-up process and will help get each person to the point where they have a few items online available for sale. The afternoon portion of the workshop is a how-to: An experienced Etsy seller has a personal tool box of ‘tricks’ to drive buyers to their site. We will cover many topics including creating Etsy treasuries, ‘following’ key people, taking great product shots, and joining Etsy groups. The afternoon workshop will instruct participants on how to best manage their time on Etsy and where to invest their energy to drive buyers to their products.
