10 Minute Marketing

Etsy wants to help you sell your work this holiday season and have been providing lots of helpful advice and support. First of all, sign the Handmade Pledge and encourage everyone else to do the same!

I Took The Handmade Pledge!

If you can commit 10 minutes each day this week, you can do the following things to promote your shop. Simple pimple!
  • Monday: Add your Etsy shop URL to your email signatures
  • Tuesday: Add an Etsy Mini to your website or blog
  • Wednesday: Spam your friends and coworkers with an email about the buyhandmade pledge, links to etsy, etc.
  • Thursday: Print some of the postcards or other promotional graphics and distribute them to your friends, leave them in the break room, etc.
  • Friday: Tell a stranger about Etsy while you're waiting at the bus stop or buying your morning coffee.

You can see the full description of the 10 Minute Marketing plan on the Etsy Teams website.
