A successful artist and Etsy seller talks about her work and strategies for Web-shop success.
The decision to be a self-employed artist was a good choice; however Jeffords says that nearly a year after listing on eBay, sales started to taper-off. Around that time she discovered Etsy, a popular niche alternative site that offers crafty sellers a platform for selling all things handmade. After some initial research, Jeffords decided to use Etsy as the main venue for selling her artwork.
“In using Etsy I found a community of people doing what I love to do,” she said.
