How to Start Etsy Shop

What is Etsy Shop?

Etsy is a platform where you can create your E-commerce and where you can sell your products.  As an artisan, you create your own products and sell those on the Etsy platform.  What is good about Etsy is that they have their own customers and followers, so that helps you a lot at the beginning because it’s not easy to find your own customers.   They have the cheapest registering fees than any other platform where you sell your products.

Création Kalin is my shop where I sell all of my creations. I create different bags, purses, backpacks, and some little key chain toys, and more.  When you register with Etsy you just need the name of your ”shop” you don’t need to have a domain right away.  You can start like me on the Etsy platform and when your shop starts to work, then you will register your domain name. (It is better to keep the same name you register with Etsy for your niche and domain name).

What’s a Niche?

A Niche in the market is a specific area of marketing that has its own particular requirements, customers, and products. Small companies can do extremely well if they can fill a specific market niche. Ex.: is a niche, ”” is a niche. Niche is a name you’ll write with your domain name (.com, .org, .net).

Niches are broad and can be broken down into sub-topics or sub-niches. What is a sub-niches or sub-topics, here some good example:

Let’s say your Niche talk about Garden, well as a Niche,  Garden or gardening are Niches already taken as a domain name but a sub-niche can be “best flowers” or “garden flowers” or this one you will recognize is  “Miracle-Gro”,  these are all subtopic or sub-niche. There are thousands of different niches to choose from.  Google Trends is another good way to see if your niche idea has a steady interest.  Don’t forget to choose something that for you will be easy to talk about, because you are doing this for the long term.

Dropshipping with Etsy?

Etsy you can also make like other platforms, but it’s a little different from the other selling platform because you need to create or write something on your products you will choose to dropship. It is personalized products mostly.

Between you and me, Etsy is the cheapest platform to register and It’s known all over the world. (I tried three different).  I highly recommend Selling on Etsy!!!


The way it works with Etsy, you need to register with Etsy on PrintFul and from PrintFul you’ll choose a product on this platform and personalize it with something you’ll write or draw.  PrintFul has a lot of different products to dropship all one color and add your personalized work.

I suggest you follow your customers for feedback and good services after purchase.  This is the first and most important thing to do after a customer makes a purchase on your E-commerce. An email to thank them for the purchase and if they have any questions you’re here for them.
