Program length: 2.5 Hours

Program description: Etsy is a marketplace where creative entrepreneurs can sell their goods to people around the world. With over 18 years of small business and teaching experience I can teach anyone to set-up their own Etsy shop! I am a certified Etsy Craft Entrepreneurship trainer and have taught both business and hands-on craft programs at public libraries in upstate New York. This 3 hour Etsy Workshop can be taught at libraries, colleges, and community organizations. In this program participants will learn how to choose a shop name, get their products found in a search, photograph products, and price and ship items. Participants will leave the class with their shop started and with the tools to fully open their shop when they are ready. This program would be a great addition to your series of business classes or as part of your organizations computer class offerings. This class is for adults who make creative items or collect vintage items 20 years or older.
Space/special requirements: Facility must have a projector available as this class is mostly computer demos and digital presentation This class has a 15% hands-on component. Computer labs are great but your organization can also ask registrants to bring their own laptops or tablets to the class if that is not available to you. Internet connection is necessary for this class.
