Tim Adam of TimothyAdamDesigns on Etsy (a metal artist with close to 2000 sales) is sharing his tips, tricks and sage advice for Etsy sellers, packing into this book full of 200 pages with a very low preorder price on Amazon.
|Tim's wonderful metal designs include jewelry trees, ie: Japanese Cherry Tree in his Etsy shop.|
He revealed last night on his live blog chat on Handmadeology last night, this book contains interviews with the 8 top Etsy sellers and 12 top bloggers in the handmade and design scene! This information I am dying to know!
For those of you who don't know, Handmadeology is a site by Tim, for the handmade community. It's a site where you can learn, connect, and talk about selling handmade things online. It seems as though I hear about some things FIRST there that I wouldn't find elsewhere.
Tim used social media to grow his site rapidly. By trial and error, interviewing, and research, he learned what works and what doesn't to drive customers to your website, or Etsy store. This is why I trust this book will be wonderful. I honestly can't wait for it to come out, publish date is set for March 2011 but the preorder price is now!
