Etsy.com is the eBay of handmade goods and is a great place for the crafty to start making money online, they charge less than the aforementioned auction site and have somewhat of a cult following. It is very easy to set up an etsy store and it gives you instant access to tens of thousands if not millions of customers. If you have a quality product that people like and are willing to keep up with customer demand, your reputation will grow. This can be jump started even more so by sending out free samples to prominent bloggers who through the unwritten laws of the Internet are obliged to write about you and send you some high quality traffic. It is important when you start your store to have an easily brandable name. I recommend picking up “the name of your etsy store.com” before you even begin; this will solve a whole lot of headaches later on if you decide to go at it alone. Make sure to have a link to your site in your etsy store, if you aren’t ready to start selling on your own I suggest keeping a blog running.
