The #1 Tip or Trick to getting your Etsy business going is to remember that you are in the business of marketing your business! If you build it they will NOT NECESSARILY come without a lot of hard work to get your name and products out there. While I have known this throughout my career, it is the one thing that I have to remind myself of every day as I continue to grow my shop. It also coincides with the 80/20 rule. You will probably spend 80% of your time marketing your business and only 20% creating the actual items that you sell. I have found this to be one of the largest struggles for business owners out there, and it’s not any different with Etsy!
