*Turn Your Etsy Shop into a Sales Machine*

Lisa Jacobs
Etsy_how_to_sellBringing your creative business to Etsy can tap you into the wide online market, but it isn’t as simple as setting the product of your hard work in the store window and waiting for customers to wander by. To make your online storefront irresistible to customers, you have to learn to showcase your products effectively.

Join creative marketing guru Lisa Jacobs’s Turn Your Etsy Shop into a Sales Machine for three in-depth sessions on how to use Etsy as as it’s meant to be used: as a sales platform.
Session 1: Build an Etsy Storefront That Sells

  • What it takes to get your Etsy shop found online
  • How to avoid common Etsy mistakes that are hurting your sales
  • How to fine-tune your storefront to attract visitors and convert them into buyers

You’ll learn to give your business new energy, especially if you’re struggling to stand out in the crowded online marketplace or dealing with long droughts without a sale.

Session 2: Market Your Etsy Shop to Sold-out Success

  • Talk about your product in a way that gets people excited to buy
  • How to gain big exposure for your brand and products
  • How to create a consistent business plan with predictable results

Get paying customers to your Etsy storefront using simple, proven marketing strategies. No far-fetched theories, generalized blanket statements, or big business comparisons here — just specific, direct training for creative business owners.

Session 3: Advertising for Creative Business Owners

  • How and when to build an ad campaign into your marketing strategy
  • How to create a successful ad campaign that attracts the right customers
  • Where and how to advertise your products

Etsy is a great sales platform, but only as long as you are able to get the word out about your brand and your products. Build a successful advertising campaign into your marketing strategy, and bring your small business to new customers.

You’ll design systems for managing the day-to-day process of running your business while planning a response to both failure and success. You’ll also learn essential techniques for marketing your online products and launching new offerings successfully. You’ll leave this course with the ability to – literally! – sell your digital products in your sleep.

*Right-Brain Business Plan Home Study Program*

Jennifer Lee
If you have a creative business — or you’re thinking about starting one — this book and e-course will uncover new possibilities and inspiration that you never thought possible. Want a fun and creative way to plan for your amazing entrepreneurial success? Then come join the party at the Right-Brain Business Plan Home Study e-Course. You’ll roll-up your sleeves and craft a visual plan that lets your head know where your business is going AND inspires your heart to sing with joy.

Plus, since it’s a home study program, you get to start whenever you want and you get to do it all on your own time! This multimedia home study program is perfect for you if:

  • You don’t have a business plan and know you need one, but doing dirty dishes, dealing with loads of laundry, or even getting a head start on next year’s taxes all sound way more appealing (ugh!)
  • You’ve tried to do a business plan the “traditional way” and you got stuck, overwhelmed, and demotivated
  • You already have a business plan, but you need to breathe new life into it
  • You can’t stand spreadsheets
  • Numbers numb you out
  • AND you’d be a heck of a lot happier planning your business in the same intuitive, authentic, and expressive way that you live your creative life (yes, indeed, it can be that fun and fulfilling!)

Susannah Conway
The Unravelling process is a new way to view your world, taking time to appreciate the beauty around you. And we do this in the simplest way: we stop and look. Beginning with your feet, you’re going to go on a photo safari into your own life to reconnect with who you are, where you’ve been and where you want to go next. But this isn’t a photography course -– rather, we’ll be using the camera as a tool to unlock how we see not only ourselves but also the world we live in, including the immediate surrounds of our homes, places of work and our friends and family. You don’t need any previous photography experience to do this course — just a desire to get back in touch with the real YOU.
